Cleaning Product Ingredient Safety Data Now Available

Posted: February 3, 2014

Safety data on ingredients used in more than 900 consumer cleaning products, including fragrance ingredients, is now accessible through the American Cleaning Institute (ACI)’s Hazard Data Portal.

The Hazard Data Portal, which is part of ACI Cleaning Product Ingredient Safety Initiative, can be accessed at www.cleaninginstitute.org/CPISI and by clicking on “Hazard Data Portal."

For instance, it includes data on a number of materials used in fragrance applications such as Abies Alba leaf oil, citronellol, Santalum Album (sandalwood) oil and more.

ACI launched its Ingredient Inventory in 2012 with a list of more than 900 chemical ingredients used by ACI members to manufacture consumer cleaning products, including laundry care products (e.g., laundry detergents, fabric softeners), dish care products (automatic dish detergents, hand dish detergents) and hard surface cleaners.

“In the second phase of this project, we identify publicly available hazard data for each chemical ingredient used in our members’ formulated consumer cleaning products in our Hazard Data Portal,” said Paul DeLeo, ACI's senior director of environmental safety. “This initiative represents the cleaning product industry’s continued commitment to transparency and further showcases the responsible management of cleaning products and their ingredients.”

The data available on the ACI website will be most useful to regulators, researchers, and cleaning product industry formulators and suppliers looking for detailed information on ingredients used in consumer cleaning products.
