Available Formulations

The incredibly versatile soybean already has broad applications, and we’re only just tapping its potential (visit the About page to learn more about soybeans). Airable Research Lab has explored formulations for soy-based products from soaps to sanitizers. Check out some of our recent projects below, and contact us if you’re interested in pursuing these or other soy-based innovations.

Soybean-Hull-Reinforced Polymers

One of the most commonly used polymers, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) benefits from the use of sustainable additives. Torrefied soybean hulls can serve as a cost-efficient feedstock for increasing HDPE’s toughness and biodegradability.

Hand Sanitizer

The pandemic has escalated demand for hand sanitizer, prompting our team to develop one made from high oleic soybeans. Proper cleansing requires a two-pronged approach: destroying germs and keeping skin hydrated. Our sanitizer does both.

High Oleic Soybean Oil Soap

With the onset of COVID-19, the importance of disinfection prompted the Airable team to develop a liquid soap made with high oleic soybean oil. The oil leaves the hands feeling soft and moisturized, even after repeated washings. High oleic soybean oil’s emollient properties are derived from oleic acid, whose structure is very similar to that of the oils in our skin.

Airable Research Lab is a business line of the Ohio Soybean Council (OSC). OSC is governed by a volunteer farmer board, which directs the Soybean Promotion and Research Program. OSC’s primary goal is to improve soybean profitability by targeting research, development, marketing, and education projects through the investment of farmer-contributed funds (checkoff).
