Our Research : Product Development

Home Care Products

Helping consumers ensure day-to-day cleanliness and hygiene, Lion develops products related to clothing, food and the home. Specific examples include laundry detergents developed based on research into highly biodegradable surfactants made from plant-derived palm oil and enzymes that can easily break down various types of grime; fabric softeners that contain ultra-fine particles made using nanotechnology; dishwashing detergents and household cleaners created based on hard-surface cleaning technologies; and insecticides developed based on research into insect biology. Furthermore, we are pursuing research in such areas as efficient cleaning and antibacterial technologies. Such research is based on analyses in such areas as lifestyle trends and their effects on grime that occurs on clothing and in the home as well as mold and bacteria life cycles.
