Consumer demand has prompted Henkel to double production for one of its Purex products.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Consumer demand has prompted Henkel to double production for one of its Purex products.

The company, which introduced the Purex Complete Crystals softener earlier this year, said that its plants have operated at full capacity since the launch of the in-wash fabric softener to keep up with the unprecedented demand.

To mitigate the number of product shortages until August, Henkel announced that it would suspend production of Purex Complete Crystals softener's Tropical Splash variety, which is 1-of-3 scents the brand produces.
