Nature's formula for cleaning & sustainable living

Enzymes for safer, biodegradable cleaning products

Found in nature and part of our everyday lives, enzymes are active ingredients that enable more eco-friendly, high-performance solutions in the cleaning and laundry spaces. Enzymes target and break down the toughest and messiest stains, whether cleaning or brightening clothing, sanitizing dishes or medical instruments or enhancing at-home or industrial cleaning applications.

As essential ingredients, enzymes and probiotics/microbes improve the cleaning power, sustainability and efficacy of the final products through their unique reaction profile and versatility.

Microbial solutions for a deeper clean

Microbes applied as probiotic cleaners keep working to deep clean even when you aren’t by harnessing the power of biology. Another key ingredient for safer, more sustainable products, microbes enhance cleaning applications through their continuous cleaning and stain removal capacity on hard surfaces, going beyond one and done to break down harmful substances for days following the initial cleaning.


Partnering with probiotics in cleaning products

We share the world with microbes. Rather than remove these beneficial bacteria through over-sanitization, we can join forces with them to keep our environments healthy, safe and clean. Read our article to learn more about probiotic cleaners.

Did you know:


Novozymes’ proteases were the first enzymes to be added to a detergent and have been in use since 1963. Protease is now considered a basic ingredient in laundry and automatic dishwashing detergent, but its effects cannot be substituted by any other ingredient.

Beneficial bacteria like Bacillus produce almost 70 different cleaning enzymes.

Microbes, derived and sourced from nature, also deliver continuous cleaning power, tackling even the tiniest crevices for up to 7 days after application.
