Collaborative industry innovation challenge leads to development of safer preservatives for consumer products

Consumer products are a source of our exposure to toxic chemicals. Pressed by consumer demand and regulatory scrutiny around the globe, companies have increasingly committed to removing toxic ingredients from everyday products. One of the most difficult barriers to designing safer, more sustainable products is ensuring that the replacement ingredients are both effective and safe.

After a yearlong competition among innovative companies and research institutions, the Green Chemistry & Commerce Council (GC3) and InnoCentive announced winners of their global innovation challenge for greener preservatives. Greener preservatives have been an aim of many retailers and brands recently.
