WILMINGTON, DELAWARE, Jan. 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Henkel recognized Ashland Global Holdings Inc. (NYSE: ASH) as a top supplier for best-in-class performance in 2019 during the 2020 American Cleaning Institute (ACI) Annual Meeting and Industry Convention, Jan. 27, – Feb. 1, 2020 in Orlando, Florida.

Ashland received second prize in the “Best Innovation Contributor Laundry & Home Care 2019” for captivates technology that provides visible benefits in Henkel’s Power & Pearls hand dishwashing detergents.

Ashland Captivates GL encapsulates are custom-manufactured, spherical matrix particles that are naturally-derived and create novel sensory experiences. The beads are produced using a proprietary technology that creates hydrogel beads from a continuous stream of viscous liquid. The resulting droplets are transformed into solidified beads or pearls using gelation techniques. The mineral pearls, filled with pumice, provide an eye-catching design. They clean grease and starch residues and are more than 99 percent natural.

“Ashland’s solvers delivered an innovative solution that adds allure to Henkel’s product on the retail shelf with the efficacy that consumers demand,” said Guillermo Novo, chairman and chief executive officer, Ashland. 

Ashland was among more than 30 suppliers that were recognized by Henkel.
