A strong degreasing power



Sensio™ is a multi-benefit solution offering a unique combination of cleaning power and foaming profile, exceeding requirements of standard cleaning products (hard surface cleaning, laundry, dishwash, car wash and I&I products). Sensio™ is derived from castor oil, a vegetal source out of palm oil without direct competition with food chain. This range offers a unique sustainable alternative to traditional nonionic surfactants. Sensio's friendly labelling and ease to formulate enhance the user experience and allows its use in many ecolabels.
