Clensta International is a biotechnology company, headquarters in Delhi, India with subsidiary office in the Netherlands. It is an IIT Delhi shareholding company, established in 2016.[1][2][3]


Clensta was founded in 2016 by Puneet Gupta. The company is a IIT Delhi shareholding company.[4] Clensta is situated at the Biotechnology Facility in the institute. In 2018 company received funds from DST.[5]

The idea commenced when Gupta worked in close assistance with a defense start-up where he came across the concern for soldier's personal hygiene & patient’s hygiene to be maintained in severe circumstances.[6] The concept has defined an approach to bathing as it eliminates the rinsing element from water while ensuring complete hygiene.[7][8]

The company has raised an undisclosed amount from Indian Angel Network and other investors.[9] In July, 2019 the company was supported under the Biotechnology Ignition Grant Scheme (BIG), a flagship programme of BIRAC.[10]
