NEW: A Product Collection with 100% Fragrance Transparency
We are thrilled to introduce new Glade® Fresh Citrus Blossoms and be the first major consumer packaged goods company to disclose 100% of fragrance ingredients in a product collection, down to the component level. It is the next step on SC Johnson’s decades-long journey of ingredient disclosure.
This means that on the product and on our ingredient disclosure website you can find a list of every ingredient in the Fresh Citrus Blossoms products.
The product line includes:
- Premium Room Spray, which quickly adds fragrance to the air and creates a tranquil atmosphere for your home with a gentle, yet powerful scented mist.
- PlugIns® Scented Oil Refills, which fit Glade® PlugIns® Scented Oil Warmer. Simply insert the warmer in an outlet for long-lasting fragrance that’s adjustable to fill any room in your home with fragrance.
- Wax Melts Refills, which give even the largest room in your home a boost through cubes of scented wax that melt to release true-to-life fragrance.
Going Beyond Natural Fragrances
The 100% fragrance transparency we’re offering with this new collection is unique. It differs from those companies that disclose natural fragrances or essential oils in aggregate, even though natural fragrances contain tens or even hundreds of individual components that go undisclosed.
Like all fragrances, natural fragrances are made up of chemical components such as acids, aldehydes, esters, ketones and terpenes. They can even contain chemicals listed on California Proposition 65.
This doesn’t mean they’re unsafe – the concentrations of these components are so low they pose little if any threat. Yet, they do occur.
No Surprises: A 100% Disclosed Fragrance from Glade®
SC Johnson’s new Glade® Fresh Citrus Blossoms collection is transparent about 100% of its fragrance ingredients down to the most basic component level.
This fragrance is carefully crafted from individual components. All are nature-inspired, most are nature-identical and all pass SC Johnson’s rigorous screening criteria. Fresh Citrus Blossoms is created intentionally, so we can choose which components – and how much of them – to include or exclude, with no surprises.
We can share what’s inside because we know what’s inside. The full ingredient list is on the products and on whatsinsidescjohnson.com.
Why Does Disclosure Matter?
It’s actually up to each manufacturer to decide if they want to share information about what’s inside. There are few regulations or industry standards when it comes to ingredient communication or disclosure.
But at SC Johnson, we think transparency is important. We understand that some people may have concerns about certain ingredients, and we want to make information available so they can make the right choices for their families.
We also want to encourage discussion of all types of chemicals, from naturals to those that are nature-inspired. They have different benefits and, when used in appropriate amounts, all can be used safely.
About Fragrance Disclosure
Because fragrance suppliers consider their recipes to be trade secrets, it can be difficult to share fragrance details.
But we’ve been negotiating with our suppliers for more and more transparency, and we’ve made great progress. We started sharing our full fragrance ingredient list in 2012 and launched product-specific fragrance disclosure in June 2015, sharing more than 99.9 percent of ingredients in the total product formula.
Thanks for Your Support!
We are thrilled to take the additional step of launching a 100% fragrance disclosure line – and we appreciate your support. By trying Fresh Citrus Blossoms, you help us show that transparency really does matter. With your help, we can keep transforming transparency in fragranced products.
