More Information

Decyl glucoside is a non ionic surfactant with excellent foaming capacity and good dermatological compatibility that is suitable for use as a base surfactant or a co-surfactant in cosmetic surfactant cleansing preparations.

Decyl Glucoside is a natural non ionic surfactant ideal for all foaming and cleansing products. Like coco glucoside, Decyl glucoside is obtained from renewable raw materials through a combination of plant based fatty alcohol (Coconut C8-16) and glucose (sugar/ starch). Decyl Glucoside is a mild and gentle surfactant and because it does not dry the skin it is ideal for formulation of personal hygiene and toiletry products. Decyl Glucoside is comparable to other alky polyglucoside surfactants (Caprylyl/Capryl) Glucoside (c8-10), coco glucoside (c8-16) and lauryl glucoside being the combination of the glucoside and select fatty alcohol

Decyl glucoside generates an exceptional foam for non ionic surfactant, whatever the conditions, it produces a very satisfactory level of foam comparable with that obtained using conventional anionic surfactants. moreover, the foam obtained is particularly stable which is an advantage for formulation of bubble baths and shower gel. the soap generated is fine and stable.

 In contrast, Its touch is not comparable  with that of a foam obtained using anionic surfactants. furthermore, because of its wide range of compatibility, decyl glucoside can can be combined with all types of surfactants without reducing foam volume or stability.
