Who We Are
GlycoSurf is a start-up chemical company founded in 2013 that is based on filed US and PCT technology from the University of Arizona. GlycoSurf was founded by three University of Arizona researchers with technology development funding from Tech Launch Arizona, the commercialization entity of the University of Arizona. GlycoSurf has installed a pilot-scale facility at the Arizona Center for Innovation to begin large-scale production of GlycoSurf’s sugar-based materials for sale and distribution.
About Our Product
GlycoSurf’s proprietary technology produces high-purity and high-performance rhamnose-containing glycolipids (rhamnolipids) for incorporation into consumer cosmeceutical and personal-care end-products. A variety of specialty rhamnolipids are available for purchase in either R&D or large scale quantities for inclusion in cosmetic or personal care products such as moisturizers, anti-oxidants, skin-lightening creams, anti-aging creams, and sunscreens.
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
