Decyl Glucoside is a biodegradable, nonionic surfactant derived from sugar that comes from coconut and/or RSPO palm. It has great foaming capacity and is mild and gentle on the skin. It is even mild enough to be used in baby care products.
Decyl Glucoside can be used as the only surfactant or as a co-surfactant in cleansing formulas. Many also include it in foaming products as a thickening agent. Salt can be added to counteract Decyl Glucoside's thickening properties if a thinner product is desired.
