Further Products is a company founded in 2008 and based in Los Angeles, California that manufactures products from refined used vegetable oil. The used oil is refined into a biofuel, and glycerin is created as a by-product from the refining process. The resultant glycerin is used to make soaps and lotions and candles. The used vegetable oil is collected from restaurants in the Los Angeles area. In February 2011, the company manufactured 10,000 products monthly.
In 2004, the company owner, Marshall Dostal, initially refined the used vegetable oil for a car he converted to run on biofuel. In the process, Dostal had the notion of using the glycerin by-product to create soap products.
