P&G Cold Wash - Allows to wash clothes in cold water with excellent performance results

Ariel Cold Wash is primarily a campaign to raise consumer awareness and invite them to exploit technology already present that allows to wash in cold water with great performance results.

Ariel cold wash is formulated to use technologies that are already working their full potential at low temperature. Ariel Cold Wash uses several enzymes with low activation energy. Also, the product is designed with a surfactant system that is more hydrophobic than the other ones in the market. This enables surfactants to remove stains much more efficiently at low temperature compared to others. The biggest help to minimise environmental impact is indeed coming from washing at 30°C. This also entails saving electricity (and money) while leading to significant reductions of CO2 emission.

Key features

  • Reduces Carbon Footprint by 35%
  • 1.2 Billlions (30°C) to 2.8 Billions (20°C) tons of CO2 reductions in Europe
