SC Johnson Applauds Discussion on Ingredient Transparency
RACINE, Wis., September 27, 2023 – SC Johnson applauds the House Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Innovation, Data, and Commerce for holding a hearing on ingredient transparency for cleaning products. As an industry-leading manufacturer of household consumer brands, we are passionate about ingredient transparency and are glad to see Congress having this important discussion.
As part of our goal to set a bold example in ingredient transparency that leads to meaningful change, SC Johnson launched our ingredient transparency program in 2009 to give consumers as much information as possible about the products they buy. In 2015, we were first in the industry to disclose product-specific fragrance ingredients. We also led the way in advocating for product transparency at the federal and state levels, including strong support for strengthening the U.S. Toxic Substances Control Act and advocating for California’s Cleaning Product Right to Know Act, which was signed into law in 2017 and made California the first state to require ingredient disclosure on product labels and online for cleaning products.
SC Johnson would like to thank House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Innovation, Data, and Commerce Subcommittee Chair Gus Bilirakis (R-FL) for enabling this latest discussion of a national approach that supports our desire for a consistent disclosure framework.
