Ingredient Disclosure

Our point of view on ingredients and fragrances

As a family company, nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of the families who use SC Johnson products. That’s why we were one of the first companies to make specific ingredient information available to our consumers and why we remain committed to transparent communication with consumers about what ingredients are in our products. We work hard to choose the best ingredients – evaluating them based on their impact on the environment and human health.  

We understand some of our consumers like to avoid certain ingredients and others may be affected by allergens, and we appreciate some consumers’ desire for us to provide labeled ingredients on product packaging. This is exactly why we developed our ingredient disclosure program and website, officially launching it to the public in 2009, introducing our Exclusive Fragrance Palette in 2012, and expanding our fragrance disclosure in 2015 with product-specific fragrance information.

Many companies develop their fragrances from a list of more than 3,000 fragrance molecules. You can click here to see the list published by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA), which shows fragrance ingredients used in consumer goods worldwide, all of which must be used so that the fragrance meets the IFRA Code of Practice and standards.

At SC Johnson, we take the review of fragrance ingredients a step further. We evaluate them not only under the IFRA standards, but also under our own standards that may look at ingredients differently.

The end result is SC Johnson's Exclusive Fragrance Palette, which meets both the IFRA standards and our own - and as a result is smaller and more exclusive than the IFRA list. SC Johnson has excluded more than 1,500 potential ingredients from our fragrance palette. provides a list of and background on ingredients included in our individual products – where it’s fully legible, and not squeezed into a small space that’s difficult to read and understand. And if you have questions, we encourage you to reach us at 1-800-558-5252 for recommendations about specific products. We’re always happy to chat with you.  

SC Johnson remains committed to enhancing our disclosure on an ongoing basis. For more information, please call us or visit
