Persil is a brand of laundry detergent made by Henkel AG that guarantees fibre deep clean and shining bright laundry. Introduced in 1907, Persil is notable because it was the first commercially available “self-activated” laundry detergent. The name, Persil, is derived from two of its original ingredients, sodium perborate and sodium silicate. Its revolutionary formula that released oxygen during washing made strenuous rubbing of the laundry superfluous. Ever since, Persil has always set the pace of time to serve society’s changing needs, combining innovation and continuity. Persil was, for instance, the first to launch a phosphate free detergent in 1986, demonstrating that sustainability is part of the brand’s heritage. After this, many high-performance innovations followed, such as the first Liquid in 1987 and the first concentrated Powder in the form of Megaperls (1994). Persil continues its legacy of providing cutting-edge German technology to every household. For more information, please visit: www.henkel-gcc.com
