Our products are developed thanks to many years of experience and experimentation, permitting us to create solutions that are both ecological and sustainable. On top of having our own investigation laboratories, we collaborate with universities around the world in order to find the future in health, hygiene and foods.
Soforo is a natural cleaning agent produced by fermenting natural yeast with palm oil and sugar. Due to being a natural byproduct from yeast, Soforo excels in biodegradability, quickly returning to the earth, and meeting safety requirements as either a cosmetic or a food ingredient, perfect to create next-gen cleaners such as Happy Elephant that are skin and environmentally friendly.
As a pharmaceutical manufacturer who has been working for many years in infection prevention, we are at the frontier of research on the immunization ingredient “lactoferrin”. After multiple experiments searching for real skin beauty we discovered the remarkable anti-aging effects of this component, leading to the creation of Lactoferrin Lab. Reawaken your skin's own beauty.
Our world is filled with synthetic chemicals that have made modern life much more convenient. However, these artificial substances often have negative costs to the environment and our bodies. With nature as our inspiration, SARAYA has developed natural and additive-free products for the entire home and body. We want our customers and their families to live healthy and sustainable lives with our products. From hand hygiene to healthy food, small changes can together make a big difference.
All our consumer soaps have a natural origin, with no additives and harmful preservatives added that alter its color or smell. Forget finding in our products bad things for your body such as synthetic petroleum-based surfactants, optical brighteners, bleaches, artificial perfumes or colorants.
In 2004, the NGO called Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil was set up to promote the sustainable production, procurement, and use of palm oil products. SARAYA’s consumer goods that are produced from this raw material use certified sustainable palm oil or palm oil that supports RSPO-certified growers, crushers, and independent smallholders. You can help us support sustainability by acquiring brands like Happy Elephant, Yashinomi, arau. and more.
SARAYA is starting to use biological plastics in some of its products, as well as cutting back the amount of used plastic. KSN, a subsidiary of SARAYA, which deals with the recycling of food waste, has started to use plastic packaging waste to make an energy-efficient fuel to promote its thermal recycling.
Lakanto’s monk fruit grows on pristine farms exclusive to SARAYA, in the remote mountains of Guilin, China, hours away from the city, in an area with clean air and unpolluted water. Using the same traditional methods that have been used for centuries, our monk fruit is harvested by local hand without pesticides, ensuring best-tasting, high-quality monk fruits compared with other monk fruit alternatives.
Starting with Yashinomi, we are eliminating any use of fossil fuels in our products and reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in order to preserve our future. Using non-petroleum-based, vegetable-based cleaning ingredients we can prevent further additions of CO2 to the planet, which has a significant impact on climate change.
Wastewater created by our product breaks down into water, which directly returns to the earth, and CO2. This CO2 will be more than compensated by the amount absorbed during the growing process of the plants we use as raw materials. As a result, carbon dioxide can circulate in our lives without increasing its total quantity.
As the world makes more improvements in technology, lifestyle and economy, SARAYA is dedicated to reminding our customers that maintaining consideration for sustainability with these advances is necessary to ensure a beautiful world will be available to our children in the future. Sustainability is a common feature of all our products and an essential part of our business. We believe that one solo effort of a company will not realize a sustainable society. By choosing SARAYA, customers are taking part in activities that make the world healthier and better.

Approximately 830 women die daily in the world due to pregnancy, childbirth and abortion, with 99% of them being in developing countries. Among them, it is said that in East Africa, "pregnancy and childbirth influence the lives of women".
With the desire to save as many lives as possible, Saraya has started activities to support pregnant women. Through the "White Ribbon Movement" of the international cooperation NGO/JOICFP, Saraya learned that mothers giving birth in Uganda often die of infectious diseases such as postpartum sepsis, mainly caused by unsanitary environments. Therefore, Saraya started the "SARAYA Safe Motherhood Project" in 2018 to protect those pregnant women. Part of the sales of Lactoferrin Lab. is used to deliver hand sanitizers to local clinics, providing mothers and babies the future they deserve.
