Enzymes are real breakers.They help preventing pilling by smoothening the surface of a textile. Small fibre fibrilles, caused by mechanical stress such as wearing and washing, are removed.
Enzymes are bio-based cleaning agents. They are powerful ingredients that work as catalysts, so that each molecule works more than once. Enzymes can help preventing the visible signs of daily mechanical stress on textiles. One of the enzymes is Cellulase, which smoothens the textile and provides color care, whiteness and anti-pilling. Regardless of their concentration, enzymes must be listed on the packaging according to the EU Detergents Regulation.
We use a variety of enzymes to avoid pilling and grey scale on textile surfaces. Cold-active enzymes, additionally, help remove stains already at low washing temperatures such as 20 or 30 °C.
