ECO LABEL Criteria for Hand Dishwashing Detergents

ECO LABEL Criteria for Hand Dishwashing Detergents

The main ECO LABEL criteria determined for hand dishwashing detergents are collected under the following headings:

ECO LABEL Criteria for Hand Dishwashing Detergents

  • Toxicity to aquatic organisms
  • Biodegradability
  • Sustainable resource use of palm oil, palm kernel oil and their derivativesı
  • Excluded and restricted substances
  • Packaging features
  • Suitability for use
  • User information

For example, according to the criterion of toxicity for aquatic organisms, the critical dilution volume of the product should not exceed certain limits for the reference dosage. This limit is set at 2.500 l / l washing water for hand dishwashing detergents.

On the other hand, the content of non-aerobically biodegradable or anaerobically biodegradable organic substances in the product should not exceed the following limits:

  • Content of aerobically non-biodegradable organic substances 0,03 g / l wash water
  • Content of organic substances that are not anaerobically biodegradable 0,08 g / l wash water

Another criterion relates to the sustainable resource use of palm oil, palm kernel oil and their derivatives. The ingredients used in palm oil or palm kernel oil products must be derived from plantations that meet the established requirements for sustainable production. It addresses environmental impacts, including soil, biodiversity, organic carbon stocks and conservation of natural resources.

Carrying the ECO LABEL environmental label, hand dishwashing detergent takes the environment and the user's health into account and is at the same time as effective as other dishwashing detergents. The selection and packaging of chemical compounds in its formulation are environmentally friendly, and the use process and raw material extraction are taken into account in the requirements.

Within this framework, dishwashing detergents labeled ECO LABEL meet strict requirements on chemicals that are harmful to the environment, including ecotoxicity and biodegradability. It meets strict requirements on chemicals harmful to human health, including the restriction on preservatives and other sensitizing agents. These products are used sparingly to conserve the earth's resources. It also contributes to the circular economy with packaging design and material choices.

Our organization has a strong staff that closely follows the developments in the world in the field of science and technology and constantly improves itself. At the same time, it uses modern test equipment and applies test methods accepted all over the world. In this context, it provides ECO LABEL certification services for manufacturing companies for hand dishwashing detergents.
