Citra-Solv Earns USDA Biobased Label

Danbury-based Citra-Solv, LLC has secured the USDA Certified Biobased Product label for two of its products, verifying that the amount of renewable biobased ingredients meets or exceeds levels set by the USDA.

The USDA confirmed that Citra-Solv Natural Cleaner & Degreaser has 95 percent biobased content and Citra-Dish Natural Dishwashing Liquid has 89 percent. “Citra Solv prides itself on our commitment to the earth and maintaining a sustainable business and environment,” said Steve Zeitler, co-founder of Citra Solv, LLC. “Certification from the USDA confirms that commitment and helps reinforce the importance of using BioPreferred products.”

Biobased products are finished or intermediate materials composed in whole or in significant part of agricultural, forestry or marine ingredients. All biobased amount claims are verified by independent labs and monitored by the USDA. The USDA BioPreferred program was created to increase the purchase and use of biobased products. Products that meet the USDA BioPreferred program requirements carry a distinctive label for easier identification by the consumer.
