NatSurFact is made from a renewable source – vegetable oil – in a natural fermentation process. It is mild when we use it to wash our skin, hair, or home, and does not hurt the environment. NatSurFact is environmentally friendly in all phases of its lifecycle.
We are all about bringing the benefits of NatSurFact – a cost-effective, powerful, and environmentally friendly product – to the world. Our close-knit team works together with all our partners, both upstream and downstream, to develop better products for personal care, cosmetics, and household and industrial cleaners, as well as anywhere else surfactants can be used.
NatSurFact is doing good, one batch of surfactant at a time.
NatSurFact is a Rhamnolipid-based line of BioSurfactant products.
Rhamnolipids are a naturally occurring class of compounds that have surface active (surfactant) properties. In nature, many species of single-celled organisms produce rhamnolipids to help them survive. The NatSurFact Team is harnessing these organisms to produce rhamnolipids efficiently in order to help us live better lives, too. Rhamnolipids are made up of fats and sugars – which is a big part of the reasons they have such good environmental and safety characteristics.
NatSurFact can replace conventional surfactants, such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, in products like shampoos, body washes, hand soaps, and cosmetics.
NatSurFact works with mild power in household cleaners such as dish soap, all purpose cleaners, and stain removers.
In cleaners that require cost-effective power, NatSurFact brings eco-friendliness and mildness to products used in janitorial cleaning, floor care, transportation cleaning, hard surface cleaning, and vehicle care.
Rhamnolipids are known to have anti-microbial properties, particularly anti-fungal. NatSurFact can be used as greener, cost-effective alternatives to traditional surfactants that are commonly used when growing stuff, you know, like food.
NatSurFact enhances the activity of the "activated sludge" in waste water treatment plants, helping to remove pollutants.
Rhamnolipids can provide a green way to reduce the impact of oil spills, and remove heavy metal from contaminated environments.
NatSurFact may be used to increase production of an old oil well, and is a greener option than chemicals currently used because it is naturally found in the environment and is biodegradable.
Rhamnolipids, the main ingredients in NatSurFact, have been shown to improve wound healing. Other potential medical applications are also being investigated.
|NatSurFact Rhamnolipid-based biosurfactant||Anionic|

Our specially selected organisms efficiently eat the oil and expel NatSurFact rhamnolipids.
Our natural fermentation process starts with triacylglyceride oil… also known as vegetable oil.
Our specially selected bacteria efficiently eat the oil and expel NatSurFact rhamnolipids in a vessel similar to one used to make beer.
We use innovative, proprietary processes to concentrate and clean up the NatSurFact so that it is ready to make your products great!
