What is the active ingredient in Chemiclean? Is Chemiclean a drug?

While the packaging doesn't list any actives, it's likely that Chemiclean is a drug. If that so, why isn't it listed on the label? Boyd is an old company, one that could have been "grandfathered" by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). "Grandfathered" means that you don't have to list certain drugs on the label.

The FDA states "Under the 1962 grandfather clause, the FD&C Act exempts a drug from the effectiveness requirements if its composition and labeling has not changed since 1962 and if, on the day before the 1962 Amendments became effective, it was (a) used or sold commercially in the United States, (b) not a new drug as defined by the FD&C Act at that time, and (c) not covered by an effective application."1

Dick Boyd, the founder of Boyd Enterprises was creating products in the 60s. Also, the positions from the FDA clause apply to Chemiclean. So, it's possible they legally don't have to list the active ingredient.
