ELS has invested millions of dollars in the research and development of an organically certified, proprietary water extraction and fractionation process to manufacture botanical surfactants. We have also formulated unique value added laundry products.
We are committed to sharing profits with those Nepalese family farmers, harvesters, businesses, and communities involved in the supply of soap berries to EcoLogical Surfactants. Unfortunately, Nepalese individuals and businesses involved in the soap berry market are forced to sell their berries at low margins. While whole soap berries are a natural commodity, a lot of work goes into hand harvesting, cleaning, deseeding, drying, packaging, and transporting the fruit. A portion of our profits goes to reforestation efforts, the people of Nepal, and the family farmers, harvesters, and businesses that contribute to our success.
