Smithers Apex, with the help of the 2018 Cleaning Products US Advisory Board is finishing up the agenda for the 12th edition of CPUS.

New this year!  Cleaning Products will separate into two different tracks, one focused on marketing and another on the chemistry and innovations of cleaning products.


Cleaning Products US 2018 will take place in Alexandria, VA at the Westin Alexandria, October 1-3, 2018. Cleaning Products US, jointly organized by Smithers Apex and ACI, brings together the top leaders and experts in the cleaning products field, and delivers a jam-packed schedule  with insights and discussions focusing on  the  latest developments in wipes and nonwovens, trends in colors and dyes, food service applications, and everything in between! Attendees will have the chance to:

  • Network with over 130 attendees from across the cleaning products supply chain, including,  Air Products & Chemicals Inc., Lubrizol, Novozymes, BASF, P&G, Reckitt Benckiser and more. 
  • Hear from experts such as The Honest Company, Definitive Design, Terracycle, Allergy Standards, RIFM, IFFand more!
  • Understand the latest trends, innovations and challenges facing the cleaning products industry
  • Build relationships and put your company's name in front of over 130 top leaders in the cleaning products field. 


Many cleaning products on the shelf today include fragrances and perfumes that are formulated with chemicals.  Consumer demand is requiring more brands to become transparent in terms of the ingredients that give products a more natural or enjoyable scent. This workshop will go into detail to address:

  • The current consumer demand for transparency in cleaning products and how this affects natural fragrances and perfumes
  • Success stories from leading natural cleaning products brands who have found success from making formulas from plants, minerals, and natural fragrances that are pure and free from any harsh chemicals, petroleum, or animal-based ingredients
  • Hear directly from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Safer Choice program on how to shape your product formulations towards safer human and pet health and environmental impact
  • And so much more!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safer Choice program (formerly known as Design for the Environment) recognizes products that meet stringent ingredient- and product-level criteria. Safer Choice products do not contain known carcinogens, reproductive or developmental toxicants - and all components are reviewed against Safer Choice criteria. Even minor product components, like dyes and fragrances, are screened for safety.

NSF is the largest third-party Safer Choice reviewer of products. We perform ingredient-by-ingredient reviews of product formulations to screen for chemicals that may present serious
