California's ingredient transparency law may lead to safer cleaners

October 3, 2019

Starting in January, cleaning product manufacturers will have to post their product ingredients online to comply with a new ingredient disclosure law in California, according to an article on the GreenBiz website.
The disclosure may prompt companies to weed out toxic chemicals in cleaning products. Challenges of ingredient transparency include:
* Ingredient disclosure is made harder by the fact that cleaning product manufacturers often don’t have access to information about some of their ingredients. That’s because they buy their raw materials from other suppliers who keep their formulas confidential.
* Cleaning products can contain byproducts and other impurities that are unintentionally created during a chemical reaction.
