Norwex chooses to use enzymes because they are a healthier alternative to the harsh chemicals that are proven to be harmful to our bodies.
BUT WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE ENZYMES ANYWAY?
Enzymes are proteins. They are produced by all living organisms and act as catalysts to speed up chemical reactions that would otherwise occur at a much slower rate or not at all. Enzymes breakdown large particles into smaller pieces. Then, these smaller molecules are digested to carbon dioxide and water.
SOME FACTS ABOUT ENZYMES:
- Enzymes take part in and accelerate a chemical reaction, without being consumed themselves in the process.
- An enzyme has a limited lifetime, and it is therefore necessary to provide a fresh supply.
- Different enzymes digests different materials.
- They also have different tolerances towards heat/cold, pH and the presence of oxygen.
- Enzyme molecules are far too complex to synthesize by purely chemical means. The only way to make them is to use living organisms.
- Norwex has created different products, for different jobs, because the use of enzymes in cleaning products requires the correct organisms for the job.

OVEN & GRILL CLEANER
The enzymes in this formula break down baked-on carbon and food deposits. It also prevents them from re-depositing on the cleaned surface. What’s more you won’t be breathing in any toxic fumes when you clean your oven.
The fast-acting microbes and enzymes in this formula break down and eliminate organic residues that cause odours in shoes, gym bags and sporting equipment. The microbes feed off food sources like sweat and urine. The microbes release enzymes that break it all down into water and carbon dioxide.
