Sophorolipids, a kind of glycolipids, regarded as the most promising bio-surfactant, are synthesized by a
selected number of yeast species. Instead of offering, as an environmental friendly alternative to the petrochemical based
surfactants, it also exhibits various bioactivities. Sophorolipids in particular are on the brink of being incorporated into
several cosmetic application. The potential of this molecule is also screened in various industries like the cosmetics,
pharmaceuticals, and other medical applications. In this review, our aim is to provide an overview and updates on basic
and applied research on Sophorolipid especially in terms of cosmetics and medicinal uses.
