Enza Biotech uses an approach which has been developed by nature for millions of years, to create novel chemical structures, entirely based on natural raw materials.


Oligomeric alkylglycosides have longer hydrophilic headgroups and are both less irritating and have improved functionalities


The OLMAG surfactants will have an impact on both the cosmetics and personal care sector striving to become more green and sustainable and on the pharmaceutical industry, looking for alternatives to polysorbate.


The cross-disciplinary team behind Enza Biotech combines scientific excellence with industrial experience to bring to you the next generation of biobased surfactants.
