“Ten years ago, SC Johnson made a commitment to global ingredient transparency. Today, by expanding our program to Latin America, we have fulfilled that commitment,” said Fisk Johnson, chairman and CEO. “By keeping our promise, we have brought ingredient transparency around the world, and in the process, we have helped motivate the industry toward greater transparency.”
SC Johnson began disclosing product-specific fragrance ingredients in 2015. SC Johnson’s ingredient disclosure programs were launched in the US and Canada in 2009.
“While some companies have been slow to incorporate ingredient transparency with their products, SC Johnson has always led from the front,” said Ken Cook, president of Environmental Working Group. “I applaud Fisk Johnson for his steadfast commitment to consumers as a global leader in ingredient transparency.”
“The demands for transparency are not going to decrease and there are a lot of enabling technologies like blockchain that will make traceability and transparency much easier for everybody and more affordable,” said Joel Makower, chairman and executive editor of GreenBiz Group. “So as those increase and become more available, I think that will also lead to more demands for transparency.”
Consumers want to know more about ingredients in the product they use.
