Description: 

SOUJI is a liquid based on minerals and vegetables that, when mixed in the correct proportions with used cooking oil, and after shaking the mixture for 1 minute, becomes a cleaning agent/detergent. Furthermore, it is 96% less polluting than a common detergent, has a pleasant aroma and is not irritating to the skin.

The idea was born in Spain, where its developers were inspired by the traditional process of making natural soap - but they made significant changes. SOUJI does not contain caustic soda or any corrosive agent, and it does not require an external heat source.

Main results: 
  • SOUJI recycles and reuses used cooking oil. It is 96% less polluting than a common detergent. It does not contain caustic soda or any corrosive agent, and is based on minerals and vegetables mixed with used cooking oil.
  • SOUJI is the only product on the market which can convert highly polluting used cooking oil into a useful and sustainable product, in just one minute and without any risk.
  • SOUJI products can be purchased online or in 97 brick and mortar shops in Spain.
