Surfactants are the basis for every single formulation in the Industrial & Home Care business. A wide range of options is of fundamental importance for customers.

Many Clariant surfactants can be offered from various production sites to fulfill regional needs in a cost-effective way. Clariant focuses on increasing the efficiency of surfactant systems in cleaning formulations as this addresses a key aspect of sustainability.

Our ongoing search for sustainable solutions led us to GlucoPure™: innovative and high-performing sugar-based surfactants for hand dishwashing and hard surface cleaners. GlucoPure™ is based on sugar and natural oils such as RSPO certified palm oil resulting in a Renewable Carbon Index of up to 95%.

From specific blends to facilitate and accelerate the production of many different formulations from our customers, to synergy concepts based on the versatile and powerful performance-boosting ammonium quaternary Hostapur HY. Our range allows formulations even with anionic surfactants, and enables a reduction in the total amount of surfactants used.

Genaminox® CHE is a new amine oxide in the Clariant line of products, allowing much more efficient and environmentally friendly formulations for cleaners and disinfectants formulations.

Clariant offers a complete portfolio of surfactants including:

  • Anionics
  • Ethoxylates
  • Amine Oxides
  • Betaines
  • Quats / Esters
  • Amine derivatives
  • Sugar surfactants
