Laundry & Home Care

Generations trust in Henkel – your expert in washing and cleaning

The Laundry & Home Care business unit is the cornerstone of Henkel’s success story: It all started with a product from this business sector. In 1876, Fritz Henkel founded the company Henkel & Cie in Aachen, Germany. The company’s first product was a laundry detergent based on sodium silicate, named “Universal-Waschmittel” (universal detergent).

Since then, this branded consumer goods business has grown into a globally active unit with many well-known brands. In the UK and Ireland, the core brands are Bloo, Dylon Dyes, Colour Catcher, Jeyes, Oust, Lord Sheraton and many more.
