Our Story

HIKETRON isn’t the first company setting out to revolutionize the cleaning products industry, but we’re the first company that will deliver on that lofty promise. We see doing it in a sustainable and socially responsible manner as not only good business, but good stewardship and a mandate.

Founded in Houston, Texas by a team that believes in creating green and sustainable products without compromising performance. After trying multiple products in the market for years, we were always faced with a dilemma when shopping at the grocery store or online. Green and sustainable products deliver a great environmental profile but lack in performance, whereas, traditional products made with harsh chemicals, deliver in performance and lack the sustainability and safety needed to sustain a healthy lifestyle. That’s where Hiketron comes into play!

Hiketron’s goal is to inform consumers about the true meaning of green and sustainable chemicals by creating safe products that are non-harmful and clean well. We plan to deliver in our promise by designing products with the least harmful ingredients in the most economical way possible.

At Hiketron we want to protect mother nature, stay healthy and still have clean clothes. To achieve this noble goal, we have invented a revolutionary patented laundry detergent product line that does just that. We don’t use harsh chemicals at all, which helps protect our environment and our bodies. The detergents are highly concentrated too, so this not only supports our endeavor to save our planet, but it also increases your bank account balance. We do not want to sell you water at the price of gold! And to add an extra bonus, our detergents not only clean clothes amazingly well, but they also have great scents which lasts so much longer than any other detergents in the market.
