INGREDIENT GLOSSARY

We are proud of the ingredients in our products and list them on every label, and share additional information about where they come from and what they do. Our products are specifically formulated to be safe for use in and around the home with family, children and pets. We work hard to ensure our products have the very best combination of ingredients that are incredibly effective, potent and responsible, but that fill your home with thoroughly addictive fragrances.


We make intelligent, responsible raw material choices, and whenever possible, obtain materials from renewable and responsibly farmed plant resources such as coconut, palm, corn, soy or olive. At times we choose not to use a plant-derived material for reasons of efficacy, consistency and safety.


Our products are free of ammonia, chlorine, glycol solvents, parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, artificial colorants, phosphates or petroleum distillates.


We do not test our products on animals, nor are our products made with animal-derived ingredients. Caldrea is a member of the Leaping Bunny Program, an internationally recognized campaign in North America and the European Union to eliminate cosmetics, personal care and household product testing on animals.


We manufacture according to exacting standards in a cosmetic-grade cGMP facility. cGMP is an abbreviation for the term "current Good Manufacturing Practice", which refers to FDA regulations regarding the manufacturing, testing, and quality control of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.


All suppliers of Caldrea ingredients derived from Palm Oil are members of RSPO (Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil). Caldrea supports sustainable practices of eco-sensitive areas throughout Asia, Africa and South America, like the Brazilian rain forests.
