Product information Decyl Glucoside 50 64CE


Decyl Glucoside 50 64CE is a 50% solution of Decyl Glucoside. It is a non-ionic mild surfactant that is growing in popularity because it is natural, derived from glucose and plant based fatty alcohols, it's biodegradable and earth friendly. Decyl Glucoside can be used in a wide range of products that require excellent foaming properties and is REACH, Cosmos and RSPO certified.

This mild and gentle ingredient is great for formulating into facial cleansers and toiletry products because it lathers easily, is mild, thickens while retaining skin moisture and prevents dryness. Decyl glucoside in skin care also helps to moisturize the human skin to prevent inflammation and itchiness. Shampoos with decyl glucoside can be formulated for all hair types including baby hair care products.

Decyl Glucoside is also widely used in home care products. In hard surface cleaners it's a useful ingredient due to the high alkaline resistance. In dish washing detergents when combined with anionic surfactants it will improve oil removing and foaming properties. In detergent due to foam production it will improve softness of clothes.

Product Group Alkyl Polyglucosides

Product Group Description

Lauryl Glucoside, Coco Glucoside, Caprylyl-Capryl Glucoside, Caprylyl-Decyl Glucoside, Hexyl Glucoside, Isooctyl Glucoside and Decyl Glucoside all belong to the family of Alkyl Polyglucosides (APG). The difference between these Glucosides lies in the length of the carbon-chain, the hydrophobic tail of the surfactant. Generally speaking, shorter tails (Hexyl (C6), Isooctyl (C8), Caprylyl-Capryl & Caprylyl-Decyl (C8-10)) quickly form a foam that is rich, but less stable, and therefore disappears more quickly. Longer tails, like Lauryl Glucoside (C12-14), take longer to form a foam, but the created foam is more dense and contributes to a luxurious feeling.
To get the best of both worlds, mixtures also exist. These mixtures, like Coco Glucoside or Decyl Glucoside (both C10-16) have quick forming foams like the short chain surfactants, while feeling more dense and luxurious, like the long chain surfactants. Another thing to keep in mind is that the longer the chain, the more viscous the liquid. This makes some long chain APGs less suitable for certain applications. 

In cosmetic ingredient review the Alkyl Polyglucoside product range is known for it's mildness and can be used for baby care products and sensitive skin formulations. It's also widely used in home care and institutional and industrial cleaning applications. Also known for it's eco friendliness amongst other qualities due to being 100% derived from renewable resources. Alkyl Polyglucoside is a biodegradable non-ionic surfactant derived from plant starch and fatty alcohol from coconut oil or palm kernel oil. Finally Alkyl Polyglucosides have in common their superior foaming capabilities, strong detergency, high concentration of electrolyte, good thickening properties, excellent solubility, low surface tension, alkali resistance and good compatibility with other cosmetic ingredients and surfactants.
