Consumer Product Ingredients Dictionary 2014



Download Standard Form.. Short Form Fragrance Application | Chemical Distributor Form


The Third Update to the Second Edition of the Dictionary is now available, featuring 612 Ingredient Monographs defining 1,014 trade names from 53 suppliers, and defining 2,340 technical or other names for those ingredients - a total of several hundred pages of technical information specific to consumer product uses. Search for these ingredients, their trade and technical names can be performed using these publicly accessible Indices:

  1. Trade names;
  2. Technical or other names;
  3. CAS numbers.

The CSPA Dictionary was created to provide standard nomenclature for companies participating in the voluntary industry ingredient communication initiative. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Design for the Environment (DfE) Standard for Safer Products also identifies the CSPA Dictionary as an appropriate nomenclature system and encourages its use for DfE participants for the ingredient communication required for DfE partnered products. The Dictionary also serves to standardize and define ingredient nomenclature for the new Walmart requirement for ingredient communication which was announced in 2014.

Even if your company is not yet involved in ingredients communication, the CSPA Dictionary is an excellent reference for R&D lab and regulatory staff, with extensive information in each ingredient monograph, and you can also search for ingredients by chemical class, functions, and lots more. In addition to its primary purpose, the Dictionary now provides valuable benefits to:

  • Product formulation scientists, who can use it to search for what ingredients are currently used in consumer products by product category, chemical class, use function and other technical descriptors, and find out who supplies them, and under what trade names they are sold;
  • Regulatory compliance personnel, who can find further information on ingredients, including VOC/LVP status in consumer product air quality regulations and information useful for Safety Data Sheets; and,
  • Ingredient suppliers, who can file applications for their ingredients and brand names to be included and made known to product formulators.

This CD is now available on both PC and MAC platforms.
