Chemical product manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our unique plant-derived sophorolipid is very safe for humans and highly biodegradable. It is an ideal material for kitchen and laundry detergents as a cleaning agent because of its surfactant effect. It also works efficiently in many ways such as an emulsifier and an effective carrier of active ingredients to the skin in cosmetics. Research has proven that sophorolipid enables active ingredients to be efficiently absorbed also through the intestinal tract, which is especially promising in the field of future functional foods. We have a long history of R&D in this field, and have established the world’s first industrial production system for high-purity sophorolipid.

[Representative's message]
We started our global operation by establishing a joint venture Best Sanitizers, Inc. in California, USA in 1995. In 2003 we constructed a factory in Guangdong, China and established sales offices in Hong Kong and Korea. A factory in Thailand, and offices in Taiwan and Belgium opened in 2004, and also offices in Shanghai, Australia, Canada, and Russia in 2005. We are now taking on the challenge of business in developing countries such as India and Uganda. We will continue to play a globally-active role as a sanitation, environment and health professional company, pursuing our mission of creating harmony with the global environment.
