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.
