It is considered to be one of the best of the New generation of surfactants . In the EU where there are heavy restrictions in place regarding cleanser ingredients, the demand for the alkyl polyglucosides increased dramatically (some sources cite as much as 400% in the space of four years!)

Polyglucoses/ sugar derived surfactants like the decyl glucoside exhibit mildness traits of nonionics, with the foam of an anionic. It is this unique characteristic that enables it to be utilized as both the primary & co-surfactant in formulations.

It is so mild that it typically does not require blending with any of the mildness additives although they can be used. Decyl glucoside is EcoCert approved for certified organic formulations.  A Sulfate free surfactant.
