Detergents and Household Care

Household care products such as laundry detergents and cleaning and care products face stringent quality and safety standards in the marketplace. At SGS, we understand the need to meet the growing requirements of consumers, legislators and retailers to provide greater transparency regarding the quality, safety and performance of raw materials and finished products.

We offer comprehensive solutions to help you distribute household care products that comply with international and local regulatory requirements as well as with your own specifications. SGS can perform physicochemical, microbiological, toxicological, ecotoxicological, biodegradability and performance tests on all your household care products.

Packaging plays an important role in the household care industry. Dealing with technical, regulatory, marketing and environmental requirements is a real challenge. Our experts can assist you throughout the whole packaging life cycle process from regulatory compliance to performance testing and end of life assessment/ecotoxicity of your primary, secondary and transport packaging.

Along with testing, SGS offers additional added value solutions to help manufacturers, importers and retailers. We can inform you about the applicable requirements; check the safety, quality and performance of your products throughout the supply chain; and help protect your brand through:

  • Technical assistance (e.g. review of labeling)
  • Audits (e.g. GMP audits, HACCP audits, social/factory/environmental audits)
  • Inspections
  • Certification programs
  • Sustainability services (e.g. ecodesign, carbon footprint, ecolabeling tests)

  • All purpose cleaners and all purpose wipes
  • Dishwasher detergents, glass cleaners, degreasers
  • Washing detergents, stain removers, hand wash
