Soforo is a natural cleaning agent produced by fermenting natural yeast, using palm oil and sugar.
Due to being a natural byproduct from yeast, Soforo excels in biodegradability, quickly returning to the earth.
Soforo meets safety requirements as either a cosmetic or a food ingredient, meaning the skin and environmentally friendly Happy Elephant is truly the next-gen cleaner.
Soforo is a 3rd generation natural surfactant (biosurfactant) that is neither a synthetic surfactant nor a soap.
Looking towards the future, Happy Elephant actively uses Soforo.
After use, Soforo, which is completely biodegradable, breaks down into water and carbon dioxide, quickly returning naturally to earth. In our biodegradation test, complete decomposition was achieved in 22 days.
Soforo is not only environmentally friendly and safe, but also has a high cleaning power. From stains to body oil, it is an excellent cleaning component for laundry detergent.
Low foaming while maintaining high detergency, it delivers excellent rinse-off results without the slippery feeling found in synthetic surfactants.
Soforo was found to be less toxic and gentler than common raw materials used in hypoallergenic cosmetics in cytotoxicity tests. Going one step above, it also meets safety requirements as a food ingredient.
