Clean Ingredients

They’re in your shampoo and your detergent; your cleanser and your cleaner. Surfactants have been a key ingredient in the household and personal products industry for decades, all the while ensuring that formulas get skin, hair, countertops and clothing clean. Now, formulators and consumers are asking if those surfactants themselves are “clean.” That is, are they sustainable? Renewable? Green? Suppliers contacted by Happi insist they’ve done their homework and their lab work, to ensure that these workhorse ingredients continue to clean surfaces without dirtying up the environment.
