You deserve to know what’s in your home. Our mission is to go above and beyond what is required to share helpful information about Dawn products that deliver the effective and sustainable clean you expect for your home and family.
The Dawn Sustainable Clean:
We all want products that are good for our families and for the planet. We continuously innovate Dawn for sustainability without ever sacrificing safety, value or performance.
We are making significant commitments to use less, recycle more and make sustainable choices easier for you.
- Dawn dishwashing liquid is now using 35% PCR (post consumer recycled) content in clear bottles
- Dawn Powerwash makes it easy to use refills, just switch out the bottle and use the same sprayer nozzle over and over again
Dawn’s powerful formulas, designed with sustainability in mind, help you get the job done right the first time.
- Dawn Ultra is so powerful you can clean dishes with 50% less scrubbing vs. Dawn Non-concentrated, so you can get through more dishes with less dishwashing liquid and less water
- Dawn Ultra provides cleaning hand dish products, with a unique concentrated formula — one bottle of Dawn can tackle over 6,000 dishes (24 oz)
- Dawn Ultra contains biodegradable surfactants

Our Commitment to Safety from the Start:
As America’s #1 Dish Liquid, safety is our number one priority. We are diligent about safety. To help you care for your home and family, our rigorous safety process involves testing products in our world-class, scientific labs and our own homes before they ever make their way to store shelves. We listen and integrate your feedback to ensure our products work as designed and are predictable over time. Every single ingredient, in every Dawn product, is scrutinized at levels above and beyond what is required.

What’s in Dawn Dish Soap:
When we consider ingredients for Dawn, we’re thinking about two things:
1) How do we safely give you the clean you want, that’s tough on grease?
2) How do we reduce our impact on the environment at the same time?
Every Dawn ingredient has a job to do, and because our thoughtfully designed formulas are rigorously tested for safety and effectiveness, all our ingredients work together as they should to change the way you wash dishes.
