Ingredient Communication

We know you value transparency, and we're committed to sharing what's inside our products.

You want to know what's in the products you use around your home and family. That's exactly why we created – to make information about U.S. and Canada our product ingredients easy to find and understand.

Our Chairman and CEO Fisk Johnson explained it best when he announced this initiative in March 2009: "Making information about the ingredients in our products readily accessible and easy to understand helps our consumers know they can continue to trust our products."

www.whatsinsidescjohnson.comOur U.S. and Canada ingredient communication website is part of a broad ingredient communication program. We put our product ingredients online and also began making them available through our toll-free consumer hotline and adding them to our product labels.

Beyond the Right-to-Know Initiative

SC Johnson's U.S. and Canada ingredient communication plan builds on a household products industry right-to-know initiative that was announced in late 2008. It's a solid program, and we applaud it. In fact, we're so committed that we go significantly further.

This includes:

  • Listing all ingredients, including dyes, preservatives and fragrance ingredients.
  • Focusing on ingredient names that are meaningful to consumers, using the personal care industry's International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) names and those in the Consumer Specialty Products Association's Consumer Product Ingredients Dictionary.
  • Not just listing but defining ingredients, and including an explanation of their purpose in the product.
  • Providing information about U.S. products in English and Spanish.
  • Providing information about Canadian products in English and French.

And, Continuing Enhancements

In January 2012, we announced the release of our Exclusive Fragrance Palette, which provides a comprehensive list of the fragrance ingredients found in the company’s products and is accessible through

We also launched website enhancements such as a fragrance education section, comprehensive product definitions, FAQs, links to other resource websites and more.

In 2013, we added pest control and other products containing active ingredients registered with the U.S. EPA to our U.S. website.

In 2014, we published our list of ingredient restrictions, increasing transparency on how SC Johnson makes ingredient choices.

In 2015, we began rolling out product-specific fragrance communication, sharing more than 99.9% of ingredients in most product formulas.

In 2016, we launched our Glade® Fresh Citrus Blossoms collection with 100% fragrance transparency, and also expanded our ingredient transparency program to Europe.
