SC Johnson products are not formulated with these ingredients:
A spray to cut through tough grease and grime on multiple surfaces in the home, including countertops, appliances, sinks and more.
(Provides a liquid base for a product.)
Ethoxylated Alcohol is a cleaning agent that can also be found in a variety of products including toothpaste and shampoos. It removes dirt and deposits by surrounding dirt particles to loosen them from the surface they're attached to, so they can be rinsed away. Ethoxylation is the process of treating a fatty acid alcohol to give it detergent properties.
(Breaks down dirt and deposits.)
Alkyl Polyglycoside is a widely used cleaning agent that is derived from sugar, and can be found in many household cleaning products. It removes dirt by loosening it from a surface. It also aids streak-free cleaning.
Tetrasodium EDTA is a chelator that can also be found in moisturizers, foundations, eye shadows and other cosmetic products. It removes soap scum and mineral deposits that are caused by hard water. The word chelator (pronounced "key-lay-tor") comes from the Greek word chele, or claw. Think of a chelator as a tiny claw that reaches out and grabs the minerals in soap scum or soils, to keep them from depositing on a surface. By binding to the soap scum or deposit, Tetrasodium EDTA allows them to be rinsed away. Tetrasodium EDTA is derived from sodium salts. Given the widespread use of EDTA, there are some concerns regarding the persistence and bioaccumulation in the environment, and the potential for EDTA to mobilize metals in the soils. For these reasons, while there are no concerns to public health from EDTA, SC Johnson is working to reduce and phase out EDTA in our products.

Sodium Hydroxide is a builder that can also be found in detergents and degreasers. It makes a product formula clean better by affecting the molecules in the formula so they work together better. Sodium Hydroxide can also be a pH adjuster that alters the pH of a product to improve stability. Every formula has an optimum pH to make it work best. For example, a formula that’s more acidic works better for soap scum removal. Its opposite, a formula that’s more alkaline, might be more effective at removing grease or greasy soils. We use pH adjusters to make sure we achieve the best pH for a particular job. Also, the pH of a formula can affect how long it lasts within a container – for example limiting its tendency to rust in a can. In high concentrations (such as in drain cleaners), Sodium Hydroxide can also be used as a caustic that helps dissolve organic matter like drain clogs.
