Why does a stain disappear from the yellow dress or pink shirt when you put some detergent in the washing machine? The answer lies in one of the main components of most detergents - the surfactants. Learn more about this chemical genius here. 

Good to know

Surfactants are the main ingredients of most detergents and cleaning products. They dissolve stains and dirt from clothing and ensure that the dirt is removed together with the washing water. 

Main surfactants in detergents are anionic and nonionic surfactants.

  • Anionic surfactants are particularly effective at oily soil and oil/clay soil.
  • Nonionic surfactants do not have an electrical charge. They are excellent grease removers.

How do we use surfactants?

It uses surfactants to provide clean laundry. All our surfactants are fully biodegradable. Surfactants can be based on petroleum or be of natural origin (e.g. from palm kernel oil). If palm kernel oil is used as a basis, we ensure that this oil comes from sustainable cultivation according to the RSPO Mass Balance model by the end of 2020.

  • Sustainability is the key

    We take great care to ensure that our packaging is functional and recyclable. Our bottles are recyclable after removing the sleeve and our bottle bodies are made from 100% recycled plastic.

  • Manufacturing Journey

    A sharp increase in CO2 in the atmosphere is causing a warming of the planet and is the main cause of climate change.

  • Be part of the movement

    Nearly 80% of the energy used and the CO2 footprint of laundry detergents are caused by the use phase, i.e. the actual washing process at home.
