CA Governor Signs Historic Law Requiring Companies to Disclose Ingredients in Cleaning Products

In a major victory for consumer and worker right to know, Governor Brown has signed into law a bill that requires manufacturers of a wide array of cleaning products to disclose their ingredients. The Cleaning Product Right to Know Act of 2017 (Senate Bill 258, authored by Senator Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens) requires the ingredients in cleaning products – particularly chemicals whose ability to harm human health or the environment has been recognized by established scientific authoritative bodies – to be listed on both product labels and online. Under this law, the mandatory disclosure also applies to ingredients in fragrance mixtures, which have been tightly-held secrets until now.
