Evonik has developed a silicone derivative that keeps laundry softer and enhances its fresh smell even two weeks after washing. The fabric softener, which is called REWOCARE® GSM 42, is currently being launched. It contains a branched organomodified polysiloxane comprising quaternary ammonium groups.
According to the company, the desired softening and freshness effect can be achieved with less active softener ingredient. REWOCARE® GSM 42 is formulated as a microemulsion and can be added to all popular fabric softeners.
