Alkyl polyglucoside (APG) surfactants are obtained from renewable, plant-derived raw materials, such as vegetable oils and starch.
They have first-rate environmental and skin compatibility profiles and fit in well with consumer demands for wellness, 'green solutions', mildness to human skin, and safety for human health.
Decyl glucoside is one of the first of the alkyl polyglucoside surfactants. It is a nonionic surfactant made from a reaction between the fatty alcohols from coconut oil and a natural sugar from corn starch.
Physical form: golden yellow viscous liquid.
APG surfactants meet the requirements for acceptance according to:
