Evonik keeps linen closets fresher for longer

Essen, July 20, 2016

Essen. With a new silicone derivative, Evonik enables formulation of fabric softeners with better performance: softer linen and, above all, longer-lasting freshness. The product, which is called REWOCARE® GSM 42, is currently being launched.

Just a small amount of REWOCARE® GSM 42 increases the softening effect and enhances the fresh smell of fabric softeners. The differences are especially clear a few days after the clothes have been washed. “With REWOCARE® GSM 42 in the fabric softener the laundry still has a pleasant freshness even two weeks later,” says Dr. Xiaolan Wang, head of Evonik’s Household Care Business Line.

The desired softening and freshness effect can also be achieved with less active softener ingredient. For manufacturers, this offers interesting options for improving their products.

REWOCARE® GSM 42 is formulated as a microemulsion and can be added to all popular fabric softeners.
