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 well-known brands, such as Persil, Purex or Pril.
