SDA's New Site Promotes Safety and Effectiveness

May 2, 2007

To give consumers a new online resource for information on the safety and effectiveness of household cleaning products, the Soap and Detergent Association has launched CleaningProductFacts.com. The site consolidates much of the science-based information on cleaning products.

The website contains updated, fact-based information on how cleaning products are formulated, used and disposed of safely.

“Over the years, cleaning product manufacturers have adapted and innovated, introducing new and better products, technologies and ingredients, reducing their environmental footprint while enhancing health and the quality of life,” said Brian Sansoni, SDA vice president of communication.

Safety is a top priority from the time a new product is developed and continues as long as the product is in the marketplace, according to SDA. Existing cleaning products are evaluated for safety by talking with consumers, reviewing scientific developments and monitoring product use data that may affect the safety assessment process. To assure that products are safe for the environment, manufacturers evaluate the impacts of product ingredients in wastewater treatment systems, streams, rivers, lakes and estuaries. Scientific principles that are widely recognized by the technical and regulatory communities are used to assess the risk to the environment.
