Household Products Database

Wondering what's in the household products you use everyday?  And how healthy are they to use?  The Consumer Product Information Database has the answers.  It was developed to bring together information on household product types, brand names, chemical constituents, health-related information (acute and chronic effects and target organs), and exposure minimization techniques.  It is the basis for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Household Products Database

Information you can find in the database includes:

  • What are the chemical ingredients and their percentage in specific brands?
  • Which products contain specific chemical ingredients?
  • Who manufactures a specific brand? How do I contact this manufacturer?
  • What are the acute and chronic effects of chemical ingredients in a specific brand?
  • What other information is available about chemicals in the toxicology-related databases of the National Library of Medicine?

To find out about recalls on all product types visit www.Recalls.gov.
