California Cleaning Products: Right to Know Act
The California Cleaning Product Right to Know Act of 2017 is the first legislation in the United States requiring cleaning products to publicly disclose a defined and regulated list of ingredients. All intentionally added ingredients as well as certain fragrance ingredients and nonfunctional constituents fall within scope of the online disclosure which goes into effect on January 1, 2020.
Further, the function of ingredients must be included, as well as identified, if they are associated with any predefined designated lists outlined in the program. Lastly, on-pack labeling requirements will take effect January 1, 2021 to require naming certain ingredients and/or directing the consumer to the online site where they can access additional information.
