Ashland’s Integra 44 Microbiocide Is Ecocert-Certified for Natural Detergents

December 3, 2013

mmercial unit of Ashland Inc., reports that Ecocert has verified that Integra 44 microbiocide conforms to its standards for use in natural laundry detergents.

Integra 44 microbiocide offers broad-spectrum antimicrobial protection in a range of consumer and industrial liquid cleaning formulations. Manufacturers seeking to obtain a natural cleaning product label designation may use the microbiocide formed from glycine.

“As consumers and retailers increasingly demand more natural cleaning solutions, Integra 44 microbiocide’s certification provides formulators a technology that supports this trend while maintaining end product integrity,” said Michael Standish, innovation manager, home care, Ashland Specialty Ingredients. “Certification offers cleaning product manufacturers assurance that they meet the ‘natural’ standards of this well-respected global organization.”

To qualify as an Ecocert “natural detergent,” a product must not have more than 5% synthetic content. Certification by the organization indicates that Integra 44 microbiocide enables detergent manufacturers to more easily meet Ecocert’s requirement.
