SC Johnson has listened to the good women who want to know what is in products before buying them — "By 2012, the company will voluntarily disclose the ingredients it uses in the fragrances and dyes and provide expanded information on preservatives in its products."
They also now have a site Whats Inside SC Johnson for more details.
Thanks to consumers co-creating a new market by demanding better, SC Johnson is responding. They have a history of doing better, now it's up to the consumer to reinforce that effort as buyers. Next I'd like to see them tackle the packaging problem using less plastic.
