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.
Lauryl glucoside is an APG surfactant that is made from coconut and sugar. It is closely related to decyl glucoside, and is good for sensitive skin.
It is a white paste so is good for thickening shampoos too.
