Augeo® Family

On behalf of Solvay, Surfachem distributes Augeo®, an innovative line of solvents developed from renewable source based on sustainability and high performance.

Augeo™Clean MULTI and Augeo® Crystal are greener alternatives in reed diffuser applications, not only due to their composition, but also due to their slower evaporation rate. This means that less cardboard packaging, glass bottles and reeds are wasted. It also means less transportation, which offers an additional cost saving benefit.
