What’s Inside SC Johnson Cleaning

July 5th, 2011

SC Johnson hasn’t been traditionally known as a green company. They still make plenty of cleaning products that aren’t very natural.

I’d like to commend them on something though. They’re becoming more transparent.

Did you know that you can go to What’s Inside SC Johnson to look up ingredients inside SC Johnson products?

For example, SC Johnson makes a Shout Nature’s Source laundry stain remover.

You can find those ingredients online now. Decide for yourself if the product is natural enough for you.

You can even click on the ingredient names to learn more. Of course, you should do your own research and form your own opinions. SC Johnson will want you to like their ingredients.

But wait a minute. Don’t companies list all their ingredients on packaging? Nope. In many cases they do not, but that’s where having a mobile phone comes in handy.

Several times now I’ve called company phone numbers listed on packaging to ask questions about products while in a store. For example, what will happen if my cat eats this toilet cleaner?

When a large company like SC Johnson makes their product ingredients available online they’re empowering consumers to make better choices. And if you have a smart phone, then chances are you can do your research while standing in the aisle.

Another way to empower yourself is to make your own cleaners. That way, you’ll know without asking what’s inside.
