Laundry detergents and stain removers

The product group comprises laundry detergent and stain removers.

Nordic Ecolabelling sets strict chemical requirements for environment and health as well as packaging for Nordic Swan Ecolabelled detergents and stain removers. In addition, the Nordic Ecolabelling promotes the use of sustainably produced renewable raw materials so that it will increase. 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.
