Advanced Allergen Removal


AqFresh™ is a revolutionary new allergen neutralisation technology for home, pet & personal care products, that helps safely remove allergens including dust mite, pollen, cat and dog allergens, on contact, when sprayed on surfaces. The technology is REACH certified, has no hazard warnings for human health or the environment and is not a plastic.

A unique patented technology

This patented technology consists of cucurbiturils – barrel-shaped molecules that bind to allergens to inactivate them. They act rapidly and keep on working over time.

Cucurbiturils have a unique symmetrical structure, with a hollow, hydrophobic cavity and polar portals. AqFresh™ contains a mixture of cucurbit[n]urils (n =6, 7, 8) and each homologue has affinity for a variety of molecules. Thus, AqFresh™ has exceptional capability to bind to a wide spectrum of molecules with different sizes and functional groups.

Amino acids are a key part of the proteins that cause allergic reactions in humans. Neutralisation occurs when amino acids on allergen protein are bound by AqFresh™, apparently de-naturing them and preventing the allergen from interacting with IgE antibodies that trigger allergic reactions.

AqFresh™ has high chemical and thermal stability, is effective in solid and liquid formulations in a wide range of pH, and delivers instant & long-lasting effectiveness.


Key allergen removal benefits

• AqFresh™ binds to allergen proteins to inactivate them

• AqFresh™ inactivates the 5 most common allergens, when sprayed or wiped onto carpet, fabric, fur and hair

• Versatile & easy to formulate – AqFresh™ works in a wide range of environmental conditions – both wet and dry, in a wide range of pH and temperature.

• Environmentally friendly, degradable under environmentally relevant conditions, awarded the Cradle-to-Cradle Material Health Certificate, and skin-friendly

Key applications

We are continually discovering exciting new applications for this breakthrough new allergen removal technology across a wide range of industries.

Home & Pet Care – eg. air fresheners, fabric fresheners & cleaners, carpet cleaners, pet shampoos

Personal Care – eg. skin care products, hair care products


Analysis by the global leader in allergen testing, Indoor Biotechnologies, shows AqFresh™ has exceptional efficacy of allergen inactivation of selected protein derived allergens.
It is proven to work against a broad range of allergens, including many of the most common ones such as dust mite, pollen, cat and dog allergens which it reduces by up to 100% on contact, when sprayed on surfaces.
