In 1962, Henkel launched Somat, the first cleaner in Germany developed specifically for dishwashers.
At this time, domestic helpers were not widespread and a dishwasher was an unaffordable luxury.
Somat once again proved its flair for innovation and was the first brand to offer tablets for machine dishwashing. The new form quickly became the market standard. With the introduction of tabs Somat provided a clean, sustainable solution for the future.
