Transparency to Help Ensure Compliance

Low 1,4-Dioxane Levels of Dow Products

Recent environmental regulations are changing the requirements for consumer products labeling.

New York recently signed legislation1 limiting the amount of 1,4-dioxane in Household Cleaning Products to no more than 2 ppm by January 1, 2022 and no more than 1 ppm by January 1, 2023. These levels apply to the 1,4-dioxane level in the fully formulated cleaning product. The state of California is also considering similar legislation for home and personal care products through the Safer Consumer Products Program2.

Concentration in Dow Products

To help enable our customers to achieve compliance in this space, Dow is providing 1,4-dioxane levels in products generally used in this cleaning market. Dow does not expect the concentration of 1,4-dioxane to be greater than the following for North American produced material, unless specified otherwise.

Product Stewardship

Dow has a fundamental concern for all who make, distribute, and use its products, and for the environment in which we live. This concern is the basis for our product stewardship philosophy by which we assess the safety, health, and environmental information on our products and then take appropriate steps to protect employee and public health and our environment. The success of our product stewardship program rests with each and every individual involved with Dow products - from the initial concept and research, to manufacture, use, sale, disposal, and recycle of each product.
