Both Henkel and Unilever manufacture their own formulations. Invented in 1907, it is notable because it was the first commercially available laundry detergent.

It is marketed as a powder, liquigel, “Small and Mighty” highly concentrated liquid detergent, liquid capsules and tablets. It is sold in biological, non-biological (with and without enzymes respectively) and colour care (biological, bleach-free) formulations.
