Automatic dishwash detergents
The effect of chemicals on the skin is less of a concern in automatic dishwash, but their effect on the environment can be a real issue. With the move towards life cycle analysis, our range of bio-based ingredients can help contribute to improved machine efficiency, resulting in lower energy usage.
Hand dishwash detergents
Foam stability, viscosity, pH and grease cutting are the main requirements for hand dishwash detergents. Examples of hand dishwash claims are; mildness, softening, hydrating, cleansing and protection.
Formulation ingredient awareness amongst consumers is increasing, as more people are being selective in the products they are willing to expose their skin to. Surfactant ingredients with proven mildness are therefore a major benefit for any hand dish wash product. Our multi-functional surfactants, have proven mildness to skin, provide luxurious foaming, as well as offering corrosion inhibition and hydrotroping.
