Alkylphenol Tag

Sustainability and green cleaning are terms that are growing in importance in the wider world, coupled with demand from tighter environmental regulations and pressure from an informed public (and uninformed public), cleaning chemicals are evolving. The impact of certain cleaning chemical ingredients to the environment and to our own health has focused the attention of manufacturers to provide safer options. Some of these chemical ingredients include: Alkylphenol ethoxylates (now banned), phosphate builders in laundry detergents and even the green-solvent alternative, d-limonene (Citrus oil), which is known to be very toxic to fish and a powerful skin irritant.
