CleanGredients helps formulators identify ingredients that have potential environmental and human health benefits, and helps suppliers to showcase their chemicals with potential environmental and human health benefits.. Formulators also may use CleanGredients to participate in voluntary product recognition or certification programs.. In particular, CleanGredients helps businesses identify cleaning product ingredients that support formulation to meet the U.. EPA DfE's rigorous criteria in order to use the DfE ecolabel.. Because key ingredient data are verified by an independent third-party, CleanGredients is recognized as a trusted source of chemical product information.. To use the database most effectively, a basic knowledge of chemistry and toxicology is recommended.. For more information about CleanGredients, visit our.. pages.. No, CleanGredients is not a certification program.. It is a database of chemicals suitable for use in cleaning products.. While certification programs help consumers make better-informed choices, the goal of CleanGredients is to help chemical formulators and suppliers develop safer, more effective products.. Because all the ingredients listed on CleanGredients have superior environmental and human health (i.. e.. , "greener") characteristics, using CleanGredients to source ingredients is a good start on the path towards getting ecolabel recognition.. In particular, all the ingredients in CleanGredients have been pre-screened against the U.. EPA DfE Screens for Safer Chemicals.. See.. "How can CleanGredients help me get an ecolabel for my product?".. for more information.. EPA's Design for the Environment Program?.. CleanGredients is a project of GreenBlue, an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in Charlottesville, VA.. The U.. EPA DfE Program provided seed funding for CleanGredients through a cooperative agreement, and DfE has provided supplementary funding for CleanGredients on an occasional basis.. GreenBlue and DfE collaborate to develop database attributes and screening criteria for different ingredient classes through consensus-based stakeholder Technical Advisory Committees (TACs).. To learn more about this process see.. "How are attributes for the different ingredient classes selected?".. The listing requirements for chemicals in CleanGredients are not necessarily identical to the criteria for the corresponding DfE Screen.. Chemicals that pass the DfE Screen are clearly indicated in CleanGredients, making them easier to identify for formulators interested in DfE partnership and product recognition.. Despite GreenBlue's collaboration with DfE, GreenBlue is not directly involved in the DfE formula profiling or product recognition processes.. To find out more about DfE's Formulator Program, including how to obtain DfE recognition for your product, please visit the.. DfE Formulator Program.. website..

More information about the benefits of sponsorship, the fee schedule, and how to become a sponsor can be found on the.. CleanGredients Sponsorship.. If your company is interested in sponsoring CleanGredients, please.. CleanGredients is not a certification program, nor is the CleanGredients logo mark an ecolabel.. CleanGredients is a resource that assists formulators in identifying high-quality ingredients for developing superior products.. As such, we cannot allow subscribers to use the CleanGredients logo mark (or the GreenBlue logo mark) to promote or advertise any chemical or formulated product.. CleanGredients subscribers may state (in printed materials, online, etc.. ) that they are a "CleanGredients.. subscriber" provided there is no indication of certification or endorsement of their product.. GreenBlue neither permits the use of its name, logo, or written materials or that of any of its projects including CleanGredients for commercial purposes, including advertising, nor allows the suggestion of any endorsement, affiliation, or sponsorship with any third party's product or service, without its prior written consent.. In order to list your products in CleanGredients you will first need to subscribe as a supplier.. Suppliers are responsible for submitting (entering) their own product information (except for the Tier 1 attribute data).. Detailed instructions are available on our.. CleanGredients offers a number of important benefits to suppliers.. One is the increased, favorable customer exposure you will receive.. Another is that formulators do not pay a per-ingredient review fee for listed ingredients when NSF or ToxServices reviews their formula(s) for DfE Partnership recognition, thereby giving formulators a significant financial incentive to choose your CleanGredients-listed chemicals.. CleanGredients also helps you communicate with your customers by providing reliable, up-to-date information about your products in a standard format that facilitates comparison and helps you clarify why your chemicals are better than your competitors'.. For more information on the benefits of listing your product in CleanGredients, visit our.. How many formulators will see my products?.. The number of formulators subscribed to CleanGredients has increased dramatically since its launch in 2006 and continues to grow.. The list includes industry giants as well as small businesses, all of which recognize the value of the information CleanGredients provides.. For an up-to-date list, visit our.. Subscribers.. What happens if my product doesn't pass the DfE Screen?.. Though similar, the criteria to list ingredients in CleanGredients are not necessarily identical to those for the corresponding DfE Screen.. This means that, even if your product doesn't pass the relevant DfE Screen, you may still be able to list it in CleanGredients, provided it meets or exceeds the CleanGredients listing criteria for environmental and human health performance.. For this reason, the "DfE Screen" attribute in CleanGredients clearly indicates whether or not each ingredient passes the DfE Screen.. To see whether your product is eligible to be listed in CleanGredients, review the.. listing requirements.. for your product's ingredient category.. What if I have a product that doesn't clearly fall into any of the existing ingredient classes in CleanGredients?.. The process for developing criteria for the different ingredient modules is labor intensive and time consuming (see.. "How are attributes for the different ingredient classes selected?".. Though new ingredient modules for CleanGredients are under active development, it may take some time before you are able to list an ingredient that doesn't fall into one of the existing modules.. Please review our news pages to see what modules are currently in development to get a sense of whether your product might be eligible for listing in CleanGredients in the near future.. If you have a specific question or suggestion, please.. CleanGredients offers a number of important benefits to formulators.. Perhaps the most obvious benefit of CleanGredients is that it will simplify your search for "greener" ingredients for your product formulations, thereby reducing research, development, and marketing costs.. In addition, CleanGredients is the only database of ingredients that have been pre-screened against the U.. EPA's DfE criteria, streamlining participation in DfE's Formulator Initiative.. Because you do not pay NSF's or ToxServices LLC's per-ingredient review fee for any CleanGredients-listed chemical in your formulation, selecting ingredients from CleanGredients can significantly reduce the cost of DfE Partnership and the right to use the DfE ecolabel on your product(s).. CleanGredients also helps you communicate with your suppliers by providing reliable, up-to-date information about "greener" ingredient chemicals in a standard format that facilitates comparison of candidate ingredients whether from a single supplier or several competitors.. To search for ingredients in CleanGredients, you will first need to subscribe and create a formulator account.. You can then access the search page for the ingredient class in which you are interested.. The search mechanism in CleanGredients assumes that you know which attributes are most important to you, in the context of the intended use.. (For example, "I'm looking for an anionic surfactant with a hydrophile-lipophile balance (HLB) between x and y.. ") You can screen products by their manufacturer (supplier), their physical form, and by a wide range of ingredient attributes, including physical-chemical properties.. At present, you cannot enter the name or CAS RN of an ingredient you'd like to replace and get back a list of potential substitutes.. More information about searching can be found on our.. If you have an ingredient in your product that you're looking to replace, the first thing you need to do in order to find a suitable replacement is to identify the key performance characteristics that you would like to maintain.. You may also note what general features are important to you (such as whether the product is available in liquid or powdered form).. Once you have identified these features, you can screen the ingredients listed in the database by your characteristics of interest.. Each ingredient class in CleanGredients has its own search page with drop-down menus containing the ingredient attributes for that class.. How can CleanGredients help me get an ecolabel for my product?.. CleanGredients is not an ecolabel or certification, but it can help you get an ecolabel for your product by helping you identify ingredients with superior environmental and human health performance characteristics.. Products formulated with greener ingredients may be eligible for recognition through a number of national and international programs, including DfE, EcoLogo, and Green Seal.. Because all of the ingredients listed in CleanGredients are pre-screened against DfE criteria, finding your ingredients in CleanGredients simplifies the process of obtaining DfE recognition.. Ingredients that meet the DfE Screen are ideal candidates for use in cleaning products recognized by DfE.. Ingredients that do not meet the DfE Screen may still be considered by the DfE Formulator Program on a case-by-case basis.. General information about the DfE program can be found on the U.. EPA's.. homepage.. Because CleanGredients is not directly involved with the DfE partnership or product recognition process, you should.. if you have more specific questions regarding DfE partnership and product recognition.. Though CleanGredients doesn't yet contain ingredient categories other than surfactants and solvents, all the ingredients included in a DfE-recognized product must be approved by the EPA's Design for the Environment Program.. To get more information on the criteria DfE uses to screen other chemical ingredient categories while additional DfE Screens are being developed, you should.. directly.. More general information regarding the standards DfE currently uses for chemical classes without completed chemical screens can be found on the.. EPA website..
