Our History

Learn About the Origins & History of Persil

In 1907 the chemists at Henkel Germany succeeded in revolutionizing the washing process with Persil laundry detergent. Since development, Persil has gained widespread recognition in Europe and is now in over 60 countries.

In early 2015, Persil was brought to the United States as Persil ProClean. In the short time since being introduced, it's quickly become recognized for its stain-fighting ability. Much of that recognition has come from winning various awards for the 2in1 and Original Power-Liquid® detergents.
