laundry surfactants

Surfactants, also known as surface-active agents, are specialized materials that greatly enhance the cleaning capacity of laundry treatments. They work by reducing water's surface tension, enabling it to penetrate fabrics more effectively and lift away dirt, grime, and stains.

Surfactants improve the efficiency of the cleaning process, resulting in cleaner, fresher clothes that enhance the consumer experience. The ability of surfactants to effectively remove dirt and stains not only leads to superior laundry outcomes but also amplifies the value proposition of laundry products. Improving the cleaning performance translates into higher consumer satisfaction, loyalty, and repeat purchases; driving the success of laundry treatment brands.

By default, water contains many minerals including the metal ions of calcium, iron, and magnesium. Anyone who has used hard water understands the challenge these metal ions create. These metal ions interfere with the effectiveness of soaps and detergents, visually resulting in soap scum. Chelating agents bind to and remove metal ions from solutions. Restraining and removing these metal ions allows for preservatives to preserve longer and surfactants to clean more efficiently. Chelating Agent, Biopure™ GLDA, is a biodegradable and eco-friendly EDTA replacement, making it a great choice for those looking for more sustainable cleaning options. This versatile chelating agent can be used in a wide variety of household, institutional, and industrial cleaning and personal care products.

personal & home care multi-surface cleaner

Multi-surface cleaners are useful disinfectants that work on a wide range of surfaces. Adding a vinegar booster to your surface cleaners adds versatility as it can cut through dirt and films on most surfaces, due to its acidic composition. Jarace™ SA-VB+ is a Sodium Diacetate-based, ammonia-free option that can be used in the kitchen, bathroom, and on car surfaces. It is also approved for use around children and animals. While vinegar tends to have a strong aroma, Jarace SA-VB+ is mild in odor and easy to incorporate into any formula.
