GlucoTain® Sense

GlucoTain® Sense

Availability: In stock



GlucoTain® Sense is the replacement for GlucoTain® Plus, which is currently unavailable for bulk supply.  It is not primarily a cleansing surfactant, but a sensorial agent.

GlucoTain® Sense is one of our new line of surfactants.  We chose GlucoTain® Sense as it is Palm Free, super mild and can be used as a co-surfactant.  Its primary function is the feel it adds to your formulations.  It is a mild cleanser, sustainable, biodegradeable, easy to use and ticks many of the most requested boxes!   GlucoTain® Sense is one of the ECOTAIN® range, leaner and greener, avoids that "squeaky clean" after feel, and you can use salt to assist thickening.

This powerful sensory additive is a mild surfactant with refatting effects and is made from sunflower oil and sugar.  It offers a deeply caring after feel to the skin and is highly efficient at improving the skin-feel of rinse-off formulations.  It also contributes to viscosity helping you to meet low-salt requirements.
