Decyl glucoside (Polyglycose)

About Decyl glucoside (Polyglycose) in DIY Skin Care

Polyglycose (decyl glucoside) is considered to be part of a new generation of surfactants. In Europe, where the world's strictest cosmetic regulations are in place under the EU Cosmetics Directive, the demand for the alkyl polyglucosides has increased by enormously.
Derived from sugar they are readily bio-degradable, low toxic, extremely mild and perform well in hard water conditions.
Several clinical skin irritancy tests show decyl glucoside to be non irritating, even  at high concentrations with an extended contact period of 24 hours.
Decyl glucoside exhibits all of the mildness traits of nonionics, with the foam of an anionic. It is this unique characteristic that enables it to be utilized as both a primary and co-surfactant in formulations.
Many companies with a natural focus to their formulations are now turning to decyl glucoside as their primary, and in some cases only, surfactant. It is so mild that it doesn't require blending with any of the mildness additives.
