Testing shows allergens and hormone disruptors like synthetic musks hiding out in Glade air fresheners. But you won’t find any of those chemicals on the label. That’s because SC Johnson, makers of Glade, keeps fragrance ingredients a secret from consumers.
This is unacceptable. We have a right to know what’s in the products we’re using in our homes.
The makers of Glade pride themselves on their commitment to telling consumers what’s in their products: “We know you value transparency, and we’re committed to sharing what’s inside our products.” Except when it comes to fragrance ingredients, apparently.
We have the power to convince Glade to be truly transparent. They’ve said it themselves: “As a family company, listening and responding to consumers is SC Johnson’s top priority.”

Take a moment to think back – did you use toothpaste, deodorant, moisturizer, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, cosmetics?
If you’re like most women, you probably use an average of 12 personal care products a day. So before you even walk out the door, you’ve already been exposed to 126 different chemicals from those products alone! Did you know that right now it’s perfectly legal for cosmetic companies to use chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, fertility problems, and hormone disruption in products we put on our body EVERYDAY?
Congressional leaders have just reintroduced the federal Safe Cosmetics & Personal Care Products Act (H.R. 1385). If passed, this historic bill will ensure personal care and salon products are free of harmful substances like formaldehyde, 1,4-dioxane, lead, mercury, and other toxic chemicals. The bill will also close labeling loopholes by requiring full ingredient disclosure directly on product labels and company websites, including ingredients in salon products and fragrance.
