Starter Formulations Approved by U.S. EPA Safer Choice


Stepan Company offers seven different Starter Formulations approved by the U.S. EPA Safer Choice and listed on the CleanGredients online database. The Starter Formulations are essentially ready-to-use cleaning products that can be customized with, for example, addition of a fragrance or colorant. These Starter Formulations are primarily used to formulate household, institutional, and industrial cleaning products that have been pre-approved to meet the U.S. EPA’s Safer Choice Standards.


The Starter Formulations allow Stepan to share learnings and insights gained from years of experience working with the third-party profilers and the U.S. EPA. Stepan developed these seven Starter Formulations in an effort to assist formulators that are either unfamiliar with the U.S. EPA Safer Choice Program or wish to save time, money, and/or resources to develop products and receive certification. Since these Starter Formulations have already been tested and reviewed against Safer Choice Standards, time to market for a Safer Choice-certified product is dramatically reduced.

The Starter Formulations available include:

  • All-Purpose Cleaner Concentrate
  • All-Purpose Spray & Wipe Cleaner
  • Bathroom Cleaner
  • Degreaser Concentrate
  • Kitchen Degreaser
  • Glass Cleaner Concentrate
  • Glass Cleaner

All ingredients included in each Starter Formulation are found under Documents to the right.
