Home & Personal Care Products: Applications, Examples, and Types

Our product portfolio is diverse and includes phosphates, acids, bleaches, and surfactants, as well as preservatives, water softeners, binders, and defoamers. Learn about the functions and application areas of each raw material here:

Phosphates: A stable pH value is essential for the effectiveness of a cleaning product. Since the pH value of a cleaning product can decrease during use, phosphates are used as a buffer to counteract this. If you have any questions regarding formulations, please feel free to contact us.

Acids: Acidic cleaning products have a pH value of <7. The smaller the pH value, the more acidic the cleaning product. Acids are mainly used in sanitary and maintenance cleaners to remove lime deposits, uric acid, fungi, and algae. In addition, acids are used to adjust the pH value. Depending on the application area, we offer different strengths of acids.

Bleaches: Bleaches are used to remove unwanted discoloration in textiles. A common ingredient in laundry detergents for this purpose is sodium percarbonate. At a temperature of 60°C or higher, sodium percarbonate releases oxygen that is able to remove stains. Due to the nature of textiles, they are often washed below 60°C nowadays. To ensure that percarbonate still has an effect at lower temperatures, the bleach activator TAED is used.

Surfactants: Surfactants are molecules that have both a hydrophobic and hydrophilic part. They reduce the surface tension of water and are cleansing substances. Modern laundry and cleaning products often contain a combination of different surfactants, such as anionic and nonionic.

Preservatives: Preservatives are used in cleaning agents or cosmetics. They inhibit the growth of microorganisms, so that a product can be preserved for a longer period of time. The approved raw materials are regulated by an EU directive. Depending on the product and formulation, we have different preservatives available in our range for you.

Water softeners: Water softeners are an effective solution to reduce the amount of detergent needed to achieve an optimal cleaning result. With high water hardness, it can be more difficult to achieve the desired cleaning effect and a larger amount of detergent is required. For this reason, we offer water softeners such as trisodium citrate that can reduce water hardness when using dishwasher tabs.

Binders: Binders hold or glue individual substances together. Many products in the detergent and cleaning industry consist of powders and are pressed into tablets or tabs. For the tablets to have a stable shape, binders such as PEG and MCC are used. MCC also offers high disintegration and thus rapid release of the ingredients.

Defoamers: Defoamers can reduce or even prevent foam formation at a desired intensity. Excessive foam formation can be undesirable, especially in textile washing or machine dishwashing. For this reason, we offer you a wide range of defoamers in different formulations that are specifically tailored to your requirements.
