Laundry detergents and stain removers
The product group comprises laundry detergent and stain removers.
Nordic Ecolabelling sets strict chemical requirements concerning environment and health – and requirements for packaging. The use of sustainably produced renewable raw materials must be increased. At the same time, satisfactory performance must be documented through standardized testing.
The requirements include:
* Environmental properties (ecotoxicity and biodegradability) of the chemicals used in the products.
* Health properties of the chemicals used in the products. E.g., no use of CMR classified substances and various specifically problematic substances such as SVHCs and endocrine disruptors.
* Performance testing.
* Recyclable design of the packaging.
* Increased use of sustainable renewable raw materials including RSPO palm oil.
