CleanGredients - the online resource for green formulation®

CleanGredients represents a community of practice that brings together industry, government and non-profit stakeholders who have a vested interest in advancing the use of green chemistry in products.

It is an online database of chemical products (a.k.a. "ingredients") used primarily to formulate residential, institutional, industrial and janitorial cleaning products that have been pre-approved to meet the U.S. EPA's Safer Choice Standard. CleanGredients is an indispensable purchasing resource for formulators who are seeking to find suppliers selling chemical ingredients that will help them to obtain the Safer Choice label in a manner that reduces risk to their business, saves them money and gets their products to market faster.
