Church & Dwight Co Inc.

Brings Viviscal, Toppik & X-Fusion to Its Personal Care Division

Church & Dwight Co., Inc., is a major American manufacturer of household products that is headquartered in Ewing, New Jersey. In 1846, brothers-in-law Dr. Austin Church and John Dwight began preparing bicarbonate of soda for commercial distribution. From those humble beginnings, Church & Dwight has grown into an internationally respected corporation serving both consumers and professionals. The famous Arm & Hammer logo symbolizes Vulcan, the Roman god of fire, who would strike his mighty hammer on his anvil. While the company manufactures many items, it is best known for its Arm & Hammer line which includes baking soda and a variety of products made with it.  Today, the company has four consumer divisions:

1.     Fabric Care – Arm & Hammer, OxiClean, Xtra, more…

2.     Home care – Arm & Hammer, more…

3.     Health & Wellbeing – Trojan, 1sr Response, Rephresh, more…

4.     Personal care: Arm & Hammer, Batiste Dry Shampoo, Toppik, Oragel, Nair, Viviscal, Arrid, Waterpik, Close-Up toothpaste, Pepsodent, more…

One of the things that impressed The Hair Authority when we did our preliminary research, was the company’s commitment to operating in a responsible and respectful manner. This is clearly defined in their ‘Global Sustainability Platform”  that states, “We will conduct our business so that we preserve the environment for future Generations, provide a safe and healthy working environment for our employees, and respect the communities where we work and live while promoting the continued success of our company.”  This does not mean company does not aggressively pursue new products and new marketing opportunities, but it does so with a simple mission: “Our goal is to delight our customers and consumers with high-quality, affordable products.”

Hair Authority: Doing a background research, we were struck by the company’s strong values and commitment to the planet.

Church & Dwight: It is essential for us to make great products and to produce them in facilities with robust environmental, health and safety performance. We work toward this high-performance culture by adhering to well established principles defined in the company environmental and safety policies. These policies guide our environmental and safety practices and expectations, and they are implemented through the following approach:

  • Accountability: Each of our facilities has a designated on-site environmental and safety coordinator responsible for monitoring and managing environmental and safety issues affecting their facility. These coordinators are closely networked to enable peer mentorship and best practice sharing across facilities.
  • Audits and Inspections: Each of our facilities undergoes a third-party conducted safety audit each year, and a third-party conducted environmental audit every other year. All facilities are subject to periodic, unannounced inspections by federal, state and local environmental and safety agencies.
  • Awareness: We offer regular training for all our manufacturing employees to promote awareness of environmental and safety practices and procedures. This includes an annual Environmental and Safety Conference for facility environmental and safety coordinators.
  • Awards: Each year we recognized one of our global operations for exemplary environmental safety and sustainability performance. An award is presented to a representative of the operation at a Town Hall event in Princeton, New Jersey.
