Surfactants are the main components of most detergents and cleaning agents. They remove stains and dirt from clothes and ensure that the dirt is removed together with the washing water.

How do we use surfactants?

For radiant and lasting cleanliness: Persil uses surfactants to ensure the best wash results you expect from the detergent you trust. All our surfactants are fully biodegradable.
Surfactants can be petroleum-based or of natural origin (e.g. palm kernel oil). If palm kernel oil is used as a base, we ensure that this oil is sustainably grown according to the RSPO mass balance model by the end of 2020 as part of our commitment to a cleaner world.
