What is ACS-Sophor?

Bio Surfactants ACS-Sophor®
(Trademark2013−015146), First Class

Allied Carbon Solutions Co.,Ltd , in collaboration with the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), and the University of the Ryukyus have established the technology to mass-produce naturally-derived high-performance surfactants called "biosurfactants" from non-edible biomass.
Production of biosurfactants from non-edible biomass using yeast
Madhuca longifolia
Madhuca oil
(High melting point)
Utilizing Mahua Oil for Fermantation Carbon Source.

Utilizing Indian Mahua Oil which is non-edible feedstock. Free from the Food Problems. [Patent Pending]

Technical Field
  • Biosurfactants which use Non-Edible biomass (Madhuca oil)
Application number
  • The number of the patent application : 2013-024713
Fermented by Avirulence Strain

ACS-Sophor is 100% Natural Product made by Stamerella (Candida) bombicola. The strain first utilize Mahua Oil , then biosynthesize Sophorolipids. Chemical structure of Sophorolipids is the Ether Linkage of Fatty Acid and Sophorose (Disaccharide of two glucoses by Beta 1・2 bond). One of the most prominent Bio-surfactants in commercial scale manufacturing.

High Surface Tension Activity & Less Foaming

The Critical Micelle Concentration(CMC)of Sophorolipids is 10~40mg/L, and γ-CMC is 30~40mN/m, has very high efficiency as surfactants. This figure is 5 to 20 times better than Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate(SDS), being considered due to its balky structure. However, Sophorolipids generate only less foam, contributing to easy rinsing and lower skin stimulus.

Maintaining Natural Composition Ratio

ACS remains same natural composition ratio of its Acid and Lactone Form since we think this is the best ratio designed by nature.

High Degradability

Sophorolipids has high degradability as same as Lauric Acid Sodium Salt, far better Eco-Friendliness comparing to existing synthetic surfactants.
