Decyl glucoside
Decyl glucosideINCI Name: Decyl GlucosideCAS# 54549-25-6; 58846-77-8; 141464-42-8; 68515-73-1EC# 259-218-1Decyl glucoside is a sustainable, green and natural surfactant derived from sugar and corn. With a carbon chain length of C8-C12 it has a superior solubility compared to Coco- or lauryl glucoside. It is a foaming and mild surfactant and could be applied as a stand-alone or co-surfactant in all personal care cleansing products such as shampoo, shower gel, facial cleansing foam, shaving foam etc. Because of its high water solubility (even at reduced temperature), we recommend this surfactant specifically for preparation of micellar watersApplication dosage: 1-30% (for micellar waters 2-4%)Active substance: 51-55%Decyl glucoside is delivered with a pH of 10.5-11.5 (preservative free). The pH of the final product should be controlled and reduced according to the product specifications and requirements of all other ingredients, specially the preservative system.Check our blog for sample formulations.

SCI 80% Aktive matterSCI is a very mild plant based anionic surfactant.This surfactant is delivered as white noodles. It is sulfate and PEG free and biodegradable. It is extremely mild and has excellent foam characteristics. It is used for preparing non-soap soaps and shampoo bars, shaving foam and cream as well as other cleansing bath and shower products.Its main advantage over soap is its mildness, low pH and its compatibility to hard water (no sedimentation, no foam reduction and no scaling in hard water).Application dosage:1% to 20% as co-surfactant30% to 60% as main surfactantThis surfactant is NOT ECOCERT, NATRUE and COSMOS conform.
