Who we are

We make complex and regulated disinfection products simple, safe and effective. We work with our clients to bring next-generation biocidal products to the market, both in retail and professional markets. We support technically, regulatory and commercially. We enable brands to add valuable antimicrobial claims to their products. This way we help deepen product propositions, power brand innovation, enhance competitive advantage for our clients, improve profit-mix, and often to just simply comply to complex rules and regulations. We offer a range of patent protected and registered formula’s in both surface care and personal care. All products are environmentally responsible and do not contain any harmful chemicals such as quaternary ammonium compounds, phenols, triclosan, biguanides or chlorine. Also the products are free of alcohols and VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) and are all not hazard classified under CLP.

Our Way of Working

Hygienix is a trusted partner with a proven track record in building long lasting and highly profitable partnerships with brand leaders in various industries across the globe. Hygienix owns the registrations, patents, know-how, formulations and test data, which we license out to our partners.

The corporate mission is to become the global alternative for user unsafe and environmentally burdening antimicrobials and build this into numerous applications.

 

 

 

Technologies

We offer products for both surface care (Home Cleaning) and personal care based on our proprietary and patented technologies.
Our technologies are strongly patent protected and combine deep proprietary know-how from our team of scientists, with years of experience in formulating biocidal products, with novel technologies recently discovered by Hygienix’ laboratories. All products are registered or notified and comply to applicable regulations and laws.

Our technologies are based on proprietary platforms where we create optimized combinations of specific organic acids and harmless synergistic ingredients. The platforms enable highly biocidal products that are harmless to environment, human beings and materials. The Hygienix technologies are environmentally responsible, do not induce antimicrobial resistance and are not under scrutiny by regulators, authorities or the public like with quaternaries, biguanides, triclosan or chlorine.

Hygienix offers superior product performance through an incremental ingredient brand equity based on IP that is protected with a series of granted and applied-for patents. We have an ongoing R&D program working with specialist chemical companies, academia and in joint development agreements with global partners.

Professionalism

Our ambition

Changing the world together with our customers

Our ambition is to make a positive change in the world. By being innovative and ambitious, and constantly reaching out to the world, our solutions will be widespread and impact our customers, their customers, their industries and the world in which we live.

Deliver radical innovations

Our customers choose us because we offer them radically new solutions based on our understanding of our customers’ needs and desires and their industries. At the same time we understand the big picture, identify new trends and stay ahead of the curve. We win by superior product performance, both in efficacy and safety as well as in ‘simplicity’ of use.

Drive our industry to safety and sustainability

We are on a continuous quest to improve safety and sustainability. We are committed to provide an alternative to unsafe and burdening chemicals that are today’s standard in our industry. We focus on sustainable solutions to improve quality of living for generations to come.

Current practices are ending

We believe that new generations of active ingredients will become the standard for future, better and safer infection control. The world cannot continue with using Quats, Triclosan, Chlorine, Biguanides and Alcohols. The long-term adverse effects are unacceptable. We initiate this change.

Safer Patient Toileting System

Hygienix is partner in the project ‘Safer Patient Toileting System’ (SPTS). This project is made possible by a subsidy from the European Regional Development Fund or ‘Europees Fonds voor Regionale Ontwikkeling’ in Dutch.

For Customers

About Hygienix

Customer profiles

Our customers are large, global homecare and personal care companies, as well as professional B2B companies selling cleaning & disinfection products, and paper-related or sanitary products, but also local brands, industry specialists (in veterinary, food, institutional, washroom services, etc.), and retailers with whitelabel brands, that all seek unique and defendable antimicrobial technologies and strong label claims.

In today’s consumer markets, products with antimicrobial claims become increasingly consumer relevant and this antimicrobial category is one of the highest growth categories in personal care and home care. Stricter regulation in food processing and healthcare have this segment grow rapidly.

It becomes more and more difficult for companies to competitively distinguish themselves with ‘standard label claims’ that are often less relevant to the end customer.

With biocide regulations becoming more stringent and many active substances being banned or heavily restricted, the development of new and effective antimicrobial products becomes more and more challenging.

Hygienix offers its client a fast market access with proven technology, registered products and a well-validated set of product claims. The scientific evidence supporting these product claims is both strong and independently generated. The products are patent protected and enable lasting unique and consumer relevant product claims.
