- Water, also sometimes listed on product labels as aqua, is the most widely used of all solvents. It is a colorless, odourless and flavorless liquid and serves as the base of many cleaning products.
- Lauryl Glucoside
- Lauryl glucoside is a mild surfactant used in household and commercial cleaning products. Glucosides are known for their foam boosting ability, lack of streaking and easy rinsing.
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
- Sodium lauryl sulfate, also called SLS, is a surfactant commonly used in household cleaners, detergents and soaps because of its soil removing and foaming abilities.
- Glycerin is used in soaps, lotions and creams to add moisturizing qualities. It is a neutral, colorless liquid made during soap production.
- Boric Acid
- Boric acid is used in laundry detergents and boosters. Boric acid is also a good buffer, helping to keep the pH of a solution stable for optimum cleaning activity.
- Oleic Acid
- Oleic acid is an unsaturated omega-9 fatty acid from various natural sources, including olive oil. It is used as a solubilizing or emulsifying agent in aerosol products and laundry detergents.
- 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.
- Sodium Borate
- Sodium borate (also known as borax) is used in laundry detergents and boosters. Borax is also a good buffer, helping to keep the pH of a solution stable for optimum cleaning activity.
- Calcium Chloride
- Calcium chloride is used to thicken formulas for better flow or to stabilize enzymes within formulas.
- 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).
- Enzyme (Protease)
- Protease is an enzyme which breaks down protein-containing soils such as meat or blood for easier removal by detergent.
- 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.
- Liquitint® Blue HP Dye
- Liquitint® Blue HP Dye is a discolourant (dye or pigment) added to cleaning products to improve aesthetic appeal, or to act as a tracer (for example in certain toilet bowl cleaners, blue coloration indicates that the product is working). They can be made from both synthetic and natural materials.
- Liquitint® Bright Yellow Dye
- Liquitint® Bright Yellow Dye is a discolourant (dye or pigment) added to cleaning products to improve aesthetic appeal, or to act as a tracer (for example in certain toilet bowl cleaners, blue coloration indicates that the product is working). They can be made from both synthetic and natural materials.
- Methylisothiazolinone is a preservative, a class of ingredients used to help prevent products from deteriorating over time, maximizing their shelf-life and ensuring efficacy and safety. They work by inhibiting growth of bacteria or mould, or by absorbing oxygen that can oxidize ingredients.
- Sodium Chloride
- Sodium chloride is also known as table salt and rock salt. It is commonly used in detergents, hand dish soaps, liquid laundry soaps and fabric softeners to thicken and stabilize formulas.
- Sodium Gluconate
- Sodium gluconate is the sodium salt of gluconic acid, produced by fermentation of glucose. Being a natural chelating agent, it can remove discoloration, soap scum and mineral scale deposits left by hard water on fixtures such as toilets, bathtubs and sinks.
- Sodium Hydroxide
- Sodium hydroxide, also known as caustic soda or lye, is used as a pH adjuster in cleaning products. As an alkali, it is useful in cleaning products for removing soils that are fatty, oily or acidic.
- Sodium Oleate
- Sodium oleate is a soap formed by the reaction of sodium hydroxide and oleic acid. It is used primarily for foam control, though at higher levels can provide a creamy feel to a composition.
