Hard surface cleaning is a very diverse category covering multipurpose cleaners and a wide range of more specialised cleaners for the different areas around the home. The split between the different sub-categories included within hard surface care has not changed over the last few years, with multipurpose cleaners topping the category.
The areas covered within hard surface care are:
Convenience is the long-term trend in hard surface care, with products that can save them time cleaning and provide quicker results excelling in the market. Whether you’re formulating products for the home, industrial or institutional facilities your customers will be looking for surface cleaning products that will effectively remove dirt, grease and grime and work on a multitude of surfaces. Our ingredients can help you formulate high-performing cleaning solutions, to reduce cleaning time and that are also milder and better for the environment. Our range of surface modification additives can also reduce the build-up of Limescale and make surfaces easier to clean.
Both legislation and consumer trends are driving a move towards greener cleaning products. Achieving this whilst maintaining high levels of performance is a major challenge to home care formulators. We can offer a range of performance additives and formulating aids for hard surface care products, which also exhibit very impressive green credentials.
Environmental concerns are also a major driver behind the increase in concentrated formulations. Concentrates reduce water consumption and improve transport efficiency, leading to reductions in the carbon footprint of a product. Hydrotropes are an essential component of any concentrate formulation, but are often considered a necessary evil since they offer little else to the formulation. Croda’s range of eco-friendly hydrotropes provide multifunctional performance benefits such as foaming and bleach stability, in addition to effective hydrotroping.
We can help you deal with the many challenges faced when trying to tackle formulation stability and performance, as well as environmental concerns.
