Crafter's Choice™ Decyl Glucoside

Premium Decyl Glucoside for your compounding of soaps , shampoos , body washes, high quality detergent items. A versatile nonionic surfactant that is very mild and gentle. But tough enough for more serious surface cleaning too!

Decyl Glucoside is a fatty polyglycoside prepared by reacting cornstarch glucose with Natural fatty alcohol. 

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. 

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.

Many companies with a natural focus to their formulations are now turning to this prouduct as their primary, and in some cases only, surfactant. 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. 

Want to rid your formulations of irritating sodium lauryl sufate (SLS)? Do you want cleansing foam, and performance, but want a truly green product is 100% biodegradeable? Try decyl glucoside today!

Due to its mildness and great foaming properties, Decyl Glucoside is recommended as a primary or co-surfactant. 

Clean! No solvents or hydrotypes. Sugar based - from renewable resources.
