Can you send me some coupons?
I’m very sorry, but we are not able to honor your request for coupons or donated products. Please note that our retail partners have special promotions for our products from time to time and may offer discounts/coupons. If you sign up for our brands newsletters, we also offer exclusive promotions.
We would like to ask for a charitable donation for our non-profit organization.
1908 Brands is a 1% for the Planet company. We were founded on a promise to protect our home, the world we all share, so rather than donating to individual charities, we've made a commitment to support local and national nonprofits on a similar mission to protect, preserve, and conserve our land. We donate the equivalent of 1% of sales through a combination of monetary, in-kind, and volunteer contributions to these partners.
What is Prop 65 and are your products compliant?
Proposition 65 (Prop 65) is a California law formally known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, which was enacted in 1986. It is a right-to-know law requiring the public to be informed when a substance on the Prop 65 chemical list – known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm – is present above a very low threshold. The law is unique to California and is not a national standard related to health or safety. No other state has such a labeling regulation
1908 Brands products are sold in retail stores across California, so we do take all necessary steps to comply with applicable safety and health requirements. In partnership with our sourcing and manufacturing partners, 1908 Brands tests the ingredients that go into each product, as well as finished products to ensure compliance with Prop 65. Our products all fall within FDA suggested guidelines for any/all of the chemicals listed on Proposition 65 and can be safely ingested.

What does the US EPA Safer Choice label on your products mean?
Safer Choice is EPA’s label for safer chemical-based products. Every chemical, regardless of percentage, in a Safer Choice-labeled product is evaluated through EPA’s rigorous scientific process and only the safest ingredients are allowed. For over 15 years, the program has labeled products that are safer for families, pets, workplaces, neighborhoods, and the environment. The label represents leadership in safer product formulation.
The Safer Choice label empowers consumers to quickly identify and choose safer products benefits the environment and human health. When consumers see the Safer Choice label on a product, they can be confident they are protecting their families and the environment by making safer chemical choices.
Products that carry the Safer Choice label are safer for fish and other aquatic life, do not pollute air or waterways, and do not add harmful chemicals to the land.
In addition to meeting stringent safety criteria, every product with the Safer Choice label has met high standards for performance.
Also, all products that carry the Safer Choice label must meet other environment-conscious criteria, such as sustainable packaging requirements and restrictions on levels of VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
Do your products disinfect?
Our Disinfectant Cleaner disinfects and deodorizes while you clean. Formulated with botanically derived ingredients and essential oils, it eliminates over 99.9% of household germs. It's free from toxic chemicals and leaves a fresh lemon scent.
Are you products vegan?
Yes. None of our cleaners nor laundry products contain animal-based ingredients, and we absolutely do not test on animals.
Do you use synthetic fragrances?
No. We only use Safer Choice, plant-based fragrances and botanical oils.

Do your products expire?
Yes. All good things come to an end. Our products will work best within 3 years of purchase.
Are your products organic?
No. It is our long-term goal to make 100% certified USDA organic cleaners, but the technology and other raw material components do not currently exist to make an organic cleaner or detergent without sacrificing cleaning capabilities. We feel that our customers expect and deserve products that work, and we deliver that with the highest quality and safest products available on the market.

Yes! Follow the directions on the label for the amount of detergent to use for HE and standard machines.
Does your laundry detergent clean as well as other traditional cleaners?

1 oz per regular load and 2 oz per heavy load.
Is the cap from the 200 oz. (230 oz.) Laundry recyclable?
The cap is polypropylene and is rated a number 5 for the recycling code.
Do your products contain phthalates?
No. Phthalates are tiny particles that we are exposed to through our use of certain plastics which may result in endocrine disruption and other health effects. Our plastics do not contain phthalates.
Do your products contain bleach?
No. We prefer to not use bleach in our products, but it is safe to use bleach in combination with our products.
Do your products contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)?
We avoid using Sulfates in the majority of our formulas. However, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), a cleaning agent and surfactant is used in our concentrated cleaning tablets to help remove grease, oily stains and residues. While cleaning products containing SLS may have the potential to be skin irritants if not made properly, products that contain SLS are not necessarily irritating to the skin. Multiple scientific bodies have reviewed SLS as an ingredient in personal care and cleaning products and determined its typical use in these applications to be safe for both consumers and the environment.
Do your products contain triclosan?
Do your products contain ethylene glycol butyl ether or EGBE?
Do your products contain casein?
Do your products contain ammonia?
Do your products contain dioxane?
Our laundry detergent contains a minute level of 1,4 dioxane. This is a by-product that occurs in the blending or development of SLES and is not an added ingredient. The raw material has a limit of 20 parts per million (think of a shot glass in an Olympic-sized swimming pool). OSHA set a limit of 100 parts 1,4 dioxane per 1 million parts of air (100 ppm) in the workplace. One bottle of our laundry detergent contains 1 ppm in the entire bottle and in dilution or wash is reduced to 4 parts per billion.
Do your products contain any genetically modified ingredients?
Yes. In some products, we are using GMO-derived cleaning agents. Currently, there aren't any channels dedicated to creating organic versions of all the ingredients we use. We are constantly looking to innovate and create the best products for you and our long-term goal is to eliminate any GMO-derived ingredients without compromising cleaning power.
Do any of your products use any corn products or corn derivatives at any point during the processing?
We do use surfactants derived from multiple plant derived sources, which could include corn.
What is Methylisothiazolinone?
Otherwise known as MIT, it is a preservative that keeps the various enzymes and surfactants from going bad. It is approved by the EPA Safer Choice program and is really the only known preservative that works.
Where can I find material safety data sheets?
SDS forms can be found on each of our product pages. Click to see 'Ingredients and How They Work' and you will find a link to the SDS sheet.
Is your bathroom cleaner safe for marble and granite?
No. Our Foaming Bathroom Cleaner should not be used on marble. Marble is very soft and very susceptible to damage from any type of acid product. Even spilling soda on marble can cause damage. Even though we use a very mild acid in our bathroom cleaner, it can still harm your marble. However, our bathroom cleaner IS safe for granite. For both marble and granite, try our Granite Stainless Cleaner. It has no acid and cleans, polishes, and protects stone.
