About Caldrea Products

Safety & Standards

Caldrea products care for the most sacred spaces of all: our homes and ourselves. This is where we, and our children, pets, and loved ones, live and breathe. For this reason, safety is the number one concern.

Caldrea products prodide an effective alternative for people who are concerned about the effects of conventional cleaning and body care products. Their formulas combine long-trusted essential oils with leading-edge know-how to provide a safer experience.

In the bottle:
  • Caldrea never uses parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, ammonia, chlorine bleach, phosphates, or petroleum distillates.
  • Preservatives are used at the minimum to accomplish optimum freshness, safety, and utility.
  • Intelligent, responsible raw material choices are renewable when possible, often based in olive, coconut, corn, or soy ingredients.
  • Occasionally, Caldrea chooses not to use a plant-derived material for efficacy, consistency, and safety.
  • Caldrea is a member of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil, The Conservation Alliance, and are Leaping Bunny Certified.

Outside the bottle:
  • All products are produced at a cosmetic grade standard (cGMP) facility.
  • All liquid products are biodegradable and powdered scrub breaks down into non-harmful decomposition products.
  • Caldrea bottles contain 25% post-consumer recycled materials and are recyclable where facilities exist.

Toxicity:
Safety is a continual process. Caldrea methodically assesses each ingredient for health and safety, alone and again in the final product formulation. They use verified laboratory tests and do not test on animals.

Because they do not test on animals, Caldrea cannot make the legal labeling claim of non-toxic. The FDA currently requires animal testing to support that claim.



Ingredients

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