Zinador™ products are zinc-based odor neutralizers from Croda that have proven efficacy against an extensive range of industrial and household malodors including body, pet, kitchen, and bathroom odors.
Zinador™ products are bio based and readily soluble in aqueous formulations without requiring any chelators or emulsifiers to formulate. The polymeric zinc complexes are developed and produced using Itaconix polymer technology for maximum performance in various applications and formulations. Zinador™ odor-control actives offer excellent temperature and pH stability and can be used with or without fragrances.
Zinador™ is available in two different forms, depending on your formulation needs:
Zinador™ 22L is a 100% bio-based odor neutralizer manufactured using Itaconix technology, making it an excellent choice for bio and organic formulations. It provides good stability, cost efficiency, and ease of use in a variety of formulations, including fabric and upholstery refreshers, air fresheners, bathroom cleaners, surface cleaners, and laundry care products.
Zinador™ 35L is an 85% bio-based odor-neutralizing active with a 75% higher zinc level than Zinador™ 22L. It is an excellent choice for formulations with high salt content or a high level of surfactants. Zinador™ 35L is easy to use and is suitable for liquid laundry detergents, carpet cleaners and shampoos, fabric fresheners, air fresheners, and bathroom cleaners.
Croda International developed various sample formulations using Zinador™ odor-control products to facilitate implementation in your formulations. Below are a few sample formulations used as a starting point for your formulation and are suitable for a wide range of applications.
