Towards 100% biological detergents

For the benefit of the planet, consumers, and your business.


Now is the time

Consumers, retailers, regulators and non-governmental organizations are increasingly asking for eco-friendly products that are gentler on the planet and for end-users. That goes for laundry products, too.

Novozymes is on an ambitious journey to enable 100% biological detergents without compromising wash performance and cost.

Enabling environmentally friendly detergents that don’t compromise on cost and cleaning experience calls for reformulations, innovations and committed partners who share our bold ambition.

Join us on the journey towards 100% biological detergents.

The awkward reality is that 65% of consumers say they want to buy purpose-driven brands that advocate sustainability, but less than 5% actually buy green detergents. Why is that? And what drives consumers in this market?
