Genapol® Complete is our contribution to a more ethical and eco-friendly home care industry. Our vegetal-origin non-ionic surfactant achieves excellent rinse and drying performance in automatic dishwashing detergents, guaranteeing cleaner machines and substantial CO₂ product footprint savings.

Genapol® Complete can be used in any environmentally friendly dishwashing detergent, significantly contributing to mitigating climate change without compromising on performance and cleanliness. With the sustainable background ecolabels require, Genapol® Complete is an excellent all-around rinse and drying surfactant with a higher bio-content and a lower carbon footprint than other rinse surfactants in the market. 

In addition, Genapol Complete avoids one of the main drawbacks of the current top performers – it reduces fatty residue build-up in the machine significantly. A comprehensive answer to the challenges of today, our non-ionic surfactant is a core ingredient of all-in-one dishwashing detergents, both sustainable and effective, a low-foaming surfactant for high-performance formulations. 

Benefits of Genapol® Complete

  • Excellent rinse performance
  • Very good overall drying performance
  • Significantly reduced fatty residues in the machine
  • Anaerobically biodegradable and partially of natural origin
  • Substantially lower product carbon footprint than alternatives
  • Outstanding compatibility with environmental labels

Excellent rinse performance

Effective rinse performance is crucial for clean and shiny dishes. Genapol® Complete offers improved sustainability with the same dishwashing performance when tested at 4% in a phosphate free powder. Our sustainable surfactant performs on par with the best alternatives regarding rinsing and drying. In addition, it helps to maintain the cleanliness and performance of dishwashers.

Significantly reduced fatty residues


Lastly, Genapol® Complete prevents fatty residues from accumulating on dishes or in the dishwasher. Based on results from a grease build-up test at low temperatures (45°C), Genapol® Complete significantly reduces fatty residues.

As a non-ionic surfactant, Genapol® Complete can be combined with other non-ionic, anionic, and cationic substances. The possible turbidity of aqueous solutions does not affect the performance of the product.
