Plant-based Eosix® surfactant - Sironix is an oleofuran surfactant technology intended to produce plant-based detergents with fewer chemicals and higher concentrations.

Cleaning products are everywhere. We use them to clean our clothes, dishes, windows, and now more than ever our hands to keep us and the people around us safe. But only 3% of products in this $13 billion industry are eco-friendly, which comes at high environmental and societal costs for future generations. On top of that, products that are eco-friendly face performance challenges or safety concerns, leaving us as customers in doubt over which product to buy. Sironix has developed a new technology to turn plants into eco-friendly cleaning ingredients that are performance advantaged and free of hazardous chemicals. By offering bio-based technology to cleaning brands, producers and consumers alike, Sironix aims to reducing the environmental footprint of a huge industry, and allows you to shop a product that fulfills all needs: sustainability, safety and performance.
