We take cleaning personally

Cleaning is a personal business. Brand innovations should be personal too. Regional, cultural, economic, and environmental factors can affect what you clean, how you clean, when you clean, and who does the cleaning. We take all of this into account to help your brand become the chosen one.

Spot-on stain removal 

Even the best detergents are challenged by stains. There are several kinds, they are difficult to remove, and they often require cleaning that is dependent on stain and fabric type.

Our stain-removal enzymes are designed to target specific stains in the most effective, sustainable, and efficient way possible.  


Types of stain-removal enzymes:

  • Protease for protein stain removal
  • Amylase for starch stain removal
  • Lipase for grease stain removal
  • Mannanase for mannan-based stain removal
  • Pectin-degrading enzymes for fruit-based stain removal 

Benefits of stain-removal enzymes: 
  • Provide targeted stain removal – match the right stain with the right enzyme
  • Remove stubborn stains like meat, pasta, and lipstick
  • Create unique brand claims
  • Allow for more sustainable laundry detergents via biodegradable enzymes.

What’s all the fuzz about? 

Fuzz and pills on fabric can ruin an entire garment. They make new clothes look old, bright colors look jaded, and smooth fabric turn rough.

How do you create a detergent formulation that gets rid of them? You guessed it - Novozymes' enzymes.

The fuzz and pill removal power of enzymes

  • Keeps fabric, especially cotton, looking new by cleaving protruding fibers
  • Removes fuzz and pills from diverse fabric types
  • Keeps fabric surface smooth and soft
  • Keeps garments looking new
  • Retains color brightness and prevents fading
  • Creates unique laundry brand claims
  • Allows for more sustainable laundry detergents via  biodegradable enzymes

Because there’s no such thing as snow-whitish  

Not whitish. Not used-to-be-white. Just pure, crisp white.  That’s a brand claim that will make any detergent stand out – and it's exactly what we offer detergents with our laundry detergent enzymes.
Regular washing damages cotton fibers, resulting in bristly microfibrils trapping dirt and preventing whites from staying white. Regular bleaching agents aren't the solution. They can't prevent soil deposition or particulate soiling of fabrics. But enzymes can help your detergent live up to its promise of lasting whiteness.  


Whiteness-retention benefits of enzymes

  • Perform better than bleaching agents for whiteness retention
  • Retain whiteness of clothes  
  • Keep clothes looking new
  • Stop fabric graying by preventing soil deposition on clothes
  • Make laundry detergents more sustainable via biodegradable enzymes

Novozymes Dishwash Solutions

Dishrupt the status quo

Life’s too short to waste doing dishes. That's why Novozymes' sustainable dishwash solutions are designed for better, faster and easier automatic and hand dishwashing. Together, we can give consumers more time for life - and help save the planet.

Give consumers a helping hand 

Soaking, scrubbing and hand-washing dishes is a time-consuming process for anyone. Our sustainable enzymatic hand dishwash solutions are designed to promote easier living through easier cleaning.

Our enzymatic solutions target complex food stains for a consistent and efficient clean. They also reduce the need for soaking and scrubbing by 50% compared to traditional non-enzymatic detergents. That’s more time to enjoy life – and less time spent at the sink.

Set life to easy mode

Consumers buy dishwashers to save the time spent washing dishes by hand. Unfortunately, they are often trading in one set of problems for another. Dishwashers can cause cloudy glassware and a build-up of starch and protein on dishes.

The solution? Our range of sustainable, enzymatic automatic dishwash solutions.  

Our enzymes break down starch and protein soils on dishes – reaching places the dishwasher’s water jets don’t. This means effective soil removal, no build-up and an environmentally-friendly solution.  

Now, automatic dishwashing will stand for less effort and better cleaning.

The benefits of enzymes

Read what the European Commission, European Ecolabel and A.I.S.E. have to say about the benefits of enzymes in detergents. And find out why their benefits could really make a difference to consumers.

Coming Clean 

The use of enzymes in household detergents results in lower washing temperatures, reduced water consumption, reduced washing times, and a reduced load of toxic substances in waste water (enzymes replace chemical substances in detergents).

Coming Clean

Enzymes have enabled detergents to work better at removing stains, offering whiteness and brighter colours, as well as fabric care and wear benefits. Enzyme containing detergents are effective with smaller dosages (detergent compaction) and perform well under a broad range of conditions including washing at low temperatures such as 30°C.

Coming Clean 

From a cleaning performance as well as a sustainability point of view, enzymes are highly desirable ingoing substances of detergents. Enzymes enable improved cleaning at lower temperatures. They are renewable and readily biodegradable substances. Enzymes can substitute or reduce some of the oil and mineral based detergent ingoing substances such as surfactants and phosphates.
