  • Extends Clariant's palette of non-staining, ecolabel-compatible liquid colorants - Sanolin® Lave Liquid
  • Get inspired at SEPAWA 2018, Booth A166-168, October 10-12, Berlin, Germany

Muttenz, October 2, 2018 – Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, will make a colorful splash at SEPAWA 2018 with two new intense red and sunshine yellow non-staining Sanolin Lave Liquid dyes introduced to support the trends for emotive colors and fragrance/color matching in fabric softeners and acidic cleaners.

Sanolin Lave Red A Liquid and Sanolin Lave Yellow S Liquid polymeric colorants are specifically stable in acidic formulations such as liquid softeners and cleaners for bathroom surfaces, fixtures and toilet applications. With industry reports projecting global growth in fabric softeners[1] and in household cleaner markets over the next five years[2], Clariant's new dyes offer a fresh option for brands to differentiate their products, respond to consumer preferences, and drive growth.

The attractive red and sunny yellow dyes are the latest additions to Clariant's ever-evolving range of brilliant Sanolin Lave Liquid colorants. The dyes are highly-valued for their high tinting strength, outstanding transparency and luminosity, and easy rinseability from skin, fabrics and surfaces. All colorants in the range are suitable for the formulation of ecolabel-certifiable, e.g. EU Ecolabel or Nordic Swan, cleaners and softeners.

Angela Lachmann, Global Key Account & Marketing Manager Consumer Care, Business Unit Pigments at Clariant comments: "To attract today's consumers, home care brands are focused on turning laundry and cleaning chores into convenient, enjoyable experiences. As part of this, they are appealing to the senses. Color is recognized for its emotional associations and the matching fragrance completes the sensual impression given to the product formulations. A citrus yellow scent/color combination builds on the impression of freshness, while the link between red and power can visualize the bacteria-killing properties of the formulation. The new additions to our portfolio help formulators of fabric softeners and acidic cleaners to easily achieve such connotations."

The full range of Sanolin Lave Liquids will be presented to the Home Care industry at SEPAWA 2018 Booth A166-168, Estrel Conference Centre Berlin, October 10-12, 2018.
