Meliora Cleaning Products Chemical Policy
At Meliora, we aim to manufacture high-performing products made with chemicals and materials that do not harm human health or the environment. The purpose of this policy is to direct Meliora’s actions toward meeting this intention.
This policy applies to all products manufactured and sold under the brand name Meliora Cleaning Products.
Supply Chain Transparency
To make informed decisions about chemicals use, we must have information on the chemicals used in manufacturing our products. We therefore purchase ONLY from suppliers that disclose full chemical ingredient information to Meliora or to our third party ingredient screening teams Suppliers must demonstrate that chemicals restricted by our company are not present over identified thresholds.
Our goal is to manufacture products that perform effectively and use the safest available chemicals and materials across the life cycle of our products. To reach this goal, we go beyond the identification and reduction of the use of chemicals of high concern, and work to replace them with safer alternatives. We will actively screen ingredients to approve them for use in our products.
Our goal is to maintain consumer confidence in the products we sell by providing meaningful and easily accessible product composition information. We will disclose all ingredient information on the packaging of the products we sell, and also on our website so customers can make an informed decision at the point of purchase.
We will set annual objectives for safer chemical use and be transparent about our objectives. We will make this policy available to the public and publicly report on our progress in regular status reports. We follow a philosophy of continuous improvement and will update our objectives as we meet specified milestones.
