Who We Are
GlycoSurf is a start-up specialty chemical company founded in 2013, focused on the novel production of rhamnolipids and similar rhamnose-sugar based glycolipid surfactants. Our green surfactants are new and innovative bio-based chemicals that are non-toxic and biodegradable.
About Our Products
GlycoSurf’s proprietary technology produces high-purity and high-performance rhamnolipids and similar glycolipids for incorporation into numerous research and development product application platforms. A variety of specialty rhamnolipids are available for purchase in R&D quantities now, and can be produced in larger quantities upon request.
Significant cost advantages and purity levels are achieved through GlycoSurf’s patented synthetic technology. GlycoSurf’s technology represents a breakthrough from traditionally produced rhamnolipids which are extracted in low-purity and at high-cost through biosynthetic processes. GlycoSurf’s ability to control the manufacturing process of these cosmeceutical and personal care ingredients results in the optimization of the performance of consumer end-products. GlycoSurf surfactants will lower your manufacturing costs and give your company a competitive advantage.LEARN MORE
