Vegetable Commodities for Household and Cleaning Products

As in many areas of daily life, sustainable products are becoming increasingly important for detergents and cleaning agents. Customers expect manufacturers to use resources in an environmentally friendly way. In a recent consumer study, 61% of respondents in Germany said they had already consciously spent more money on a more sustainable cleaning product (GIM 2020). They cited the wide range of products already available in stores as an important reason for their decision. Their most important indication of "sustainability": the raw materials used.
