Details

GlucoTain® Plus is one of our new line of surfactants.  We chose GlucoTain® Plus as it is a mild and gentle cleanser, sustainable, biodegradeable, easy to use and tick many of the most requested boxes!   GlucoTain® Plus is one of the ECOTAIN® range, leaner and greener, and performs very well.

Many sulfate free surfactants are light on for foaming, not so with GlucoTain® Plus, it is all about the foam and mildness.  Most of us who have been formulating sulfate free shampoo and body wash have experienced that "squeaky clean" feel, this is not the case with the GlucoTain® Plus.  GlucoTain® Plus is an "easy to use" surfactant and will thicken with salt, solubilise fragrance and essential oils, and offers a high level of lather and foaming.

Suitability:  Though suitable for all hair types, GlucoTain® Plus is particularly suitable if formulating for 'oily' to 'slightly oily' hair types and for those with a dry, itchy scalp.  For dry hair reduce the percentage and replace with either Distilled Water or your preferred substiute.

Benefits:

  • Offers light & abundant foam
  • Gentle to the scalp whilst offering deep cleansing
  • Excellent flashfoam – suitable as primary surfactant and foam booster
  • Very stable foam, even in presence of oils and silicones
  • Good thickening capability with salt (sodium chloride)
  • Good cleansing efficacy – proven by cleansing tests on make-up and mascara removal
  • Easy to rinse off (less time and less water required)
  • GlucoTain® Plus provides superior thickening compared to Decyl Glucoside and shows better viscosity response to salt than competing nonionics
  • Compatible with ALS systems

Name GlucoTain® Plus
Short Description

 “Built from glucose and natural oils, those co-surfactants have a Renewable Carbon Index (RCI) of up to 95% and present top cleaning performance that matches current non-green alternatives in the market.  This family of surfactants have a provenance and the percentage of RSPO Mass Balance Palm in the product.  They are currently working towards totally segregated palm within a couple of years. (GlucoTain® Plus has only 30% RSPO MB Palm, and an activity level of 50% )

GlucoTain® Plus is a mild surfactant with excellent cleansing and wetting ability.  When used as a surfactant it is especially suitable for formulations featuring light and abundant foam. GlucoTain® Plus exhibits good flash foam compared to other non-ionic and amphoteric surfactants.   It is therefore especially suitable as primary surfactant in systems without anionic surfactant and also for sulfate free formulations with reduced anionic surfactant content.  It can also be added as foam booster to standard formulations at level of 0. % active and above.  GlucoTain® Plus still has high lathering in the presence of oils and is also useful as a solubiliser for essential oils.
