About CleanGredients® and GreenBlue®

CleanGredients is an online database of cleaning ingredients — the online resource for green formulation®. CleanGredients aligns broad environmental and human health goals with the cleaning product industry's business objectives and will support formulation of products with human and environmental health benefits, whether to meet corporate internal objectives, regulations, voluntary product recognition programs, or national and international eco-labels. CleanGredients is designed to:

  1. help formulators identify ingredients that have potential environmental and human health and safety benefits, and
  2. provide opportunity for manufacturers and producers of cleaning ingredients to showcase their ingredients with potential environmental and human health and safety benefits.

At present, CleanGredients includes listings for surfactants, solvents, fragrances, and chelating agents. Modules for additional ingredient classes are in development. Key attribute data and the ingredient formulations are reviewed by an approved third-party, and carried out under confidentiality, providing verification of claims for the key ingredient attributes for ingredients without compromising proprietary formulations.
