Coco Glucoside Surfactant 16 oz
Coco Glucoside is a mild, non ionic alkyl polyglucoside (APG) surfactant, derived from renewable resources, primarily sugars of coran and coconut, made up of C8-C16 fatty alcohol glucoside. It is an excellent choice if you are looking for something with no sulfates, parabens or diethanolamides. Like our decyl glucoside surfactant, which is made from corn sugars, coco-glucoside is completely biodegradable.
Coco Glucoside is used as a mild, natural foaming surfactant, emulsifier, and/or conditioner. It is easily formulated in to all types of skin and hair care products, foaming cleansers, body washes, scrubs and other great products. Use it anywhere you want all natural cleansing foam.
Typical Usage amounts -
In Shampoos and Body Washes 5% to 50%
Facial Cleansers, Foaming Bath Products - 2% to 20 %
Appearance - Clear to Cloudy yellow Viscous liquid
Coco Glucoside has a high pH-value and for this reason the product contains no preservatives - thus the suffix UP means Unpreserved.
Coco Glucoside can be stored in the original unopened containers at below 40° C for at least two years. The product should not be stored at temperatures below 15° C. If cocoglucoside is stored at temperatures below 15° C crystallization may occur.
The product should be heated and stirred until uniform before use. Upon storage also some sedimentation can occur which has no negative effects on the quality.
It is recommended to homogenize the product before use by stirring. Containers and storage tanks made of V2A steel (material no. 1.4541) and of V4A (material no. 1.4571) are suitable for storing the coco glucoside / PLANTACARE 818 UP.
