Dettol is a brand of cleaning supplies, disinfectant and antiseptic, introduced in 1932. The manufacturer is owned by the British company Reckitt (earlier known as Reckitt Benckiser / Reckitt & Sons).
Dettol Antibacterial Bar Soap Sensitive is a unique brand of soap containing a cyclodextrin derivative: HPBCD. The producer claims HPBCD as a “helper”, having the function of bringing ingredients together to create a look, texture and performance that meets the customer’s expectations. Vague enough, but essentially that is why cyclodextrins are applied in one way or the other, it just makes the product more acceptable for customers! We may assume that without the helper effect of HPBCD, the product characteristics would be inferior and just would not sell that well.
