SC Johnson products are not formulated with these ingredients:
A spray that contains special Pledge® conditioners and natural orange oil to clean and revitalize wood surfaces.
White mineral oil is a clear liquid carrier that can also be found in a wide variety of cosmetics, personal care and household products. A carrier does just what it sounds like - it helps carry a product to a surface by thinning or thickening the formula or simply ensuring even distribution of the other ingredients in the formula. Without a carrier, the product would not work with the same consistency across a surface. White Mineral Oil can also be used as a cleaning agent that removes dust, dirt and soils, or as a stabilizer that helps maintain a product formula when exposed to air, light or heat.
(Enables the delivery of the product to a surface.)
Dimethicone is a silicone film former that can also be found in skin lotions, bath soaps and shampoos. It creates a protective coating or shine on a surface. Sometimes referred to as “silicone oil,” Dimethicone is the most widely used silicone polymer and is particularly known for its ability to smoothly coat a surface and leave it protected, without being sticky. In products that are applied to the skin, Dimethicone can also be used as an emollient that helps soften and smooth the skin.
(Creates a protective coating or shine on a surface.)
D Limonene is a cleaning agent that is one of the most widely used citrus-based fragrance ingredients. It can be found naturally through extracting oil from citrus peels, and is also produced synthetically. It can be used in place of harsher cleaning agents such as acetone, toluene or glycol ethers. The U.S. EPA has said that D Limonene is safe for use in consumer products. In the European Union, it is one of 26 ingredients that have been designated as a potential allergen for skin. However since we use it at very small concentrations -- in fact, below the level required to be reported in the European Union -- and since our products are not designed to be left on the skin, we feel it is acceptable for use.
(Breaks down dirt and deposits.)
Polyglyceryl Oleate is a cleaning agent that can also be found in a variety of personal care products such as moisturizers and concealers. 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.
(Adds scent to a product.||Fragrance: Adds scent to a product. About our Palette.)

Bitrex® is the trademarked name of Denatonium Benzoate Alcohol, and is added to a wide range of products including cleaners, cosmetics and automotive products, as well as repelling compounds such as anti-nail-biting polish and deer repellent for the garden. It is a bittering agent that makes a product taste bad to discourage people from accidentally eating things that contain it. Bitrex® is a trademark of the Johnson Matthey Group of companies.
