What are they?

Enzymes are bio-based cleaning agents, that work specifically on certain types of stains. Different types of enzymes exist, each specializing in the removal of ad hoc stain and dirt (grease, starch, protein...) Working as catalysts, each enzyme contained in Persil formulas works more than once during the washing cycle to fully remove all the stain particles.
