All Natural, Non-ionic Mild Surfactant Blend
Decyl Glucoside is a gentle non-ionic surfactant made from coconut oil and sugar.
|Appearance||Semi-viscous yellowish liquid|
|Usage rate||Can be added to formulas as is. Recommended use level 4-40% depending on desired foaming and cleansing effects. For external use only. Include it in the water phase of your formulations; it can be hot or cold processed.|
|Applications||Body washes, shampoos, bubble baths, cleansing lotions, hand soaps, baby products, cream rinses.|
|Why do we use it in formulations?||Decyl glucoside can be a good primary or secondary surfactant, contributing foaming/cleansing to an end product. It has a really rich, dense lather that is lovely in our formulations.|
|Strengths||Decyl Glucoside is a relatively easy to source “natural” surfactant with lovely lather.|
|Alternatives & Substitutions||We tend to prefer Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside in any recipe that calls for decyl glucoside, though the lather of Decyl Glucoside is richer + thicker, so I might blend Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside and Decyl Glucoside to get some of the solubilizing powers of Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside and the lather of Decyl Glucoside.|
