- Sodium Carbonate
- Sodium carbonate, also known as washing soda and soda ash, is an alkalinity builder, which is added to laundry detergents to improve cleaning efficiency. It also helps remove alcohol and grease stains from clothing. Builders act like water softeners, to remove calcium, magnesium and other ions found in tap water, that can interfere with the cleaning process.
- Sodium Citrate
- Sodium citrate is used in laundry and hard surface cleaners to help remove soap scum and stains, and to help regulate the pH of the product. It is used in some hard surface cleaning products as a preservative.
- Sodium Polyitaconate
- Sodium polyacrylate is used in laundry detergents to prevent soils from depositing on fabrics during the laundry cycle.
- Sodium Carbonate Peroxide
- Sodium carbonate peroxide (also known as sodium percarbonate) is an oxygen-based bleaching agent, which releases hydrogen peroxide upon dissolution in water. It helps to whiten, brighten and remove dirt and stains from surfaces and fabrics.
- Sodium Metasilicate
- Sodium metasilicate is often used as a corrosion inhibitor when added to detergents to protect metal components of washing machines. It also prevents soils from depositing on fabrics during the wash cycle.
- Sodium Octyl Sulfate
- Sodium octyl sulfate is a surfactant used in household cleaners, detergents and soaps because of its soil removing and foaming abilities. Because it is so water soluble, it also has some properties of a hydrotrope, which solubilizes hydrophobic compounds in aqueous solutions.
- Polyvinyl Alcohol (film)
- Polyvinyl alcohol film is a water-soluble synthetic polymer, used as a film for packaging cleaning formulas (especially for individual doses, e.g., for laundry and automatic dishwashing detergents).
- Enzyme (Amylase)
- Enzymes help break down food and soil residues into small particles that can then be washed away. These naturally occurring proteins are added to detergents to speed up the removal of dirt and stains. Types include amylase (to break down starch-containing soils), lipase (for fatty and oily soils), protease (for protein-containing soils), and cellulase (to reduce greying and pilling of fabrics containing cotton).
- Fragrances and perfumes are mixtures of fragrant essential oils, aroma compounds, fixatives and solvents. They are used in cleaning products to add a particular scent (lavender, lemon, etc.) to clothes and homes, and to mask unpleasant odours. Clorox provides a separate list of all the fragrance ingredients used in our household and professional cleaning, disinfecting and laundry products.
- Enzyme (Protease)
- Protease is an enzyme which breaks down protein-containing soils such as meat or blood for easier removal by detergent.
Clorox lists all fragrance components identified as potential allergens by the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety, an advisory board to the European Union, when they are present at a concentration of more than 0.01 percent or greater in the product and provides a separate list of all the fragrance ingredients used in our household and professional cleaning, disinfecting and laundry products.
