Decyl 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 waters
Application 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.
