Our Ingredients and Packaging

We don’t just want your clean with Cif to be the best for your home, but for the environment too. That’s why using natural ingredients and recycled plastic in our packaging is a top priority for us, while ensuring you get the best clean.

What is virgin plastic?

Virgin plastic is plastic that’s being used for the first time.

What’s post-consumer recycled plastic?

Post-consumer recycled plastic, also known as PCR, is plastic that’s been recycled and then used again. By using PCR plastic, it means we can make more bottles from the ones that are recycled.

Can you recycle Cif’s products?

You most certainly can. Find out more below.
