Rhamnose Sugar Based Surfactants–

Rhamnose sugar is a naturally occurring sugar that is generally classified as either a methyl-pentose or a 6-deoxy-hexose. Rhamnose is one of the few sugars found in nature in L-form, i.e. L-rhamnose. Rhamnose can be isolated from Buckthorn (Rhamnus), poison sumac, and plants in the genus Uncaria. Rhamnose is also produced by microalgae belonging to the Bacillariophyceae. Rhamnose exhibits some very unique properties as a carbohydrate, for example rhamnose has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and skin soothing properties. The claim is that rhamnose has been clinically proven to improve skin rejuvenation at the source; improving collagen production, elastin production and cellular turnover.

GlycoSurf manufactures two main classes of rhamnose sugar based green surfactants including: 1) rhamnolipids, and 2) rhamnosides.
