Our ultimate goal is to delight our customers and consumers with high-quality, affordable products. We endeavor to do this by continually challenging ourselves to identify and develop products with new and distinctive features that meet ever-changing consumer needs and preferences.
Four Step Safety Assurance Process
Evaluate the safety of each ingredient at its proposed concentration level, using the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Design for the Environment Safer Ingredients list as a benchmark.
Determine and evaluate potential human exposure to the proposed ingredients under normal use and reasonably foreseeable misuse.
Assess the finished product to ensure that all safety criteria are met prior to manufacture and prior to shipment to customers.
Conduct post-market surveillance and gather customer and consumer feedback.
From the earliest design stages to the end of consumer use, we explore ways to make improvements to the environmental sustainability of our product formulation and packaging. We partner closely with our suppliers to identify and execute these improvements. Today, much of our product packaging is made from post-consumer recycled materials and much of our packaging is recyclable. In 2017, we will be making changes to some of our packaging to increase the percentage of post-consumer recycled materials used.
We devote significant attention and care to transparently disclosing key ingredient and safety information for our products. The safety information for nearly all of our products is available in our Product Ingredient Disclosure.
We also disclose the ingredients of our cleaning and deodorizing products on our website in accordance with the Consumer Product Ingredient Communication Initiative.
In 2015, Church & Dwight’s ARM & HAMMER™ BioEnzyme Power Liquid Laundry Detergent was awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safer Choice label — a seal of approval that marks the product as a leader in environmental safety. As the U.S. EPA expands the Safer Choice program to more product categories, we will look to earn this certification for additional products.
