This Consumer Product Information Database (cpid) that currently links over 22,000 consumer brands to health effects has been designed to educate consumers about chemical ingredients of household products.


Disclosing chemical ingredients in products provides essential information throughout the supply chain from raw material supplier to consumers. Infor­mation about the ingredients of products and their health effects allow con­sumers to make better informed choices.The development of this database was initiated in 1994 by DeLima Associates of McLean, Virginia, USA in response to a need for a database (identified by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention), that related household product types, brand names, chemical constituents, health-related information (acute and chronic effects and target organs), and exposure minimization techniques. This database is currently supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Public Health Service, Department of Health & Human Services.
