Lauryl glucoside adds high foaming capacity to your foaming product
When combined with other glucosides helps increase foaming and cleansing richness
Lauryl glucoside is an non-ionic surfactant that can be used as a foaming agent, conditioner or emulsifier.
Lauryl glucoside has the best foaming capacity of the glucosides and good dermatological compatibility. Therefore it is suitable for use as a base surfactant or a co-surfactant in cosmetic surfactant cleansing preparations.
We recommend adding 5% Lauryl glucoside to your glucoside based surfactant formulation to boost foam.
Lauryl glucoside aids the viscosity build up of your final product.
Characteristics of Lauryl glucoside
Lauryl glucoside creates an excellent and stable foam. Lauryl glucoside is useful in hair care products where it aids hair cleaning abilities without stripping the hair.
Lauryl glucoside can be used alongside other glucosides to enhance the foam and skin conditioning properties. Lauryl glucoside is very effective when used in ionic formulations to add foam depth and emulsifying properties.
Lauryl glucoside is very useful for Bath Foams, Shower Gel and Shampoo where you wish to increase the foaming ability of the product without a decrease in the natural formulation.
Lauryl glucoside is biodegradable.
