ACI Launches Cleaning Product Inventory

November 6, 2012


• The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) debuted a detailed online inventory of ingredients used in consumer cleaning products as part of ACI’s Cleaning Product Ingredient Safety Initiative. The new Cleaning Product Ingredient Inventory is available on ACI’s Science website, www.ACIscience.org.

The inventory features 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.

“The Cleaning Product Ingredient Safety Initiative is one of ACI’s many efforts to promote the responsible management of our members’ products and the safety of the ingredients in them,” said Dr. Paul DeLeo, ACI senior director, environmental safety.“The first step in this initiative is to compile and make publicly available a comprehensive inventory of ingredients used among its members in the formulation of home use consumer cleaning products sold in the US. The initiative focuses on laundry care, dish care and hard surface cleaning products.”

The Cleaning Product Ingredient Inventory collected ingredient information from 900 consumer cleaning products manufactured by ACI members. ACI developed and published the unique ingredient names and, where available, associated Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) numbers, as part of the consolidated Ingredient Inventory. In 2010, ACI and industry allies launched the Consumer Product Ingredient Communication Initiative.
