Lauryl Glucoside

Lauryl Glucoside

Availability: In stock



Lauryl Glucoside is very gentle surfactant made from coconut oil and/or palm oil (lauryl) and sugar (glucose), the result of the reaction between them. It has virtually nil level of skin irritability which is why it's so requested by those with sensitive skin. Lauryl Glucoside is closely related so Polyglucoside, so both work well in the one formulation.

Lauryl glucoside is part of the alkyl glycoside family (APG's) and is therefore made from renewable, sustainable raw materials which biodegrade ready, is gentle on the skin and fits our demands for "safe green solutions" whilst maintaining biodegradable, are gentle on the skin and is efficient in hard water. 

As Lauryl Glucoside is a white, thickish paste it offers some thickening to your formula. If purchasing during cool weather, take the lid from the container and gently warm in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes (depending on the size) until pourable.
