“We saw a need for natural cleaning wipes without toxic chemicals,” says Eve Yen, Founder and CEO of Diamond Wipes International, Inc. “More and more customers are becoming environmentally conscious of the products they use in their daily lives. Ode to Clean is the perfect solution that customers can feel safe using in their homes."
The Ode to Clean brand was founded in 2016 by Solugen, a biotechnology company that specializes in Green Chemistry, a process to create greener and safer chemicals. Solugen's Gaurab Chakrabarti, M.D., Ph.D., a doctor researching cancer, and Sean Hunt, Ph.D., a scientist, discovered a unique enzyme that produces a pure form of hydrogen peroxide which they have called Bioperoxide. With their combined expertise, Dr. Chakrabarti and Dr. Hunt saw an opportunity to integrate Bioperoxide into an everyday cleaning product that does not compromise performance for safety.
Ode to Clean is made with 100% plant-based materials and uses solar-powered and wind-powered manufacturing. "Many so called “Natural” household cleaning wipes use toxic chemicals, and rely on petroleum-based manufacturing,” says Dr. Chakrabarti. “Sean and I developed a technology that reduces the waste and pollution in the production process but also created a purer product that would be clean and safe for our families.”
Combining Diamond Wipes’ innovation and capability with Ode to Clean's cutting-edge micro-manufacturing technology will create a product that is unmatched in today's market. Diamond Wipes is launching an upgraded version of Ode to Clean wipes in November 2018 with a biodegradable substrate and an improved formulation of Bioperoxide for more effective cleaning performance.
