Brenntag´s own range of alkyl polyglucosides are made from natural fatty acids and glucose derived from renewable plants. Being very mild and readily biodegrabable, they are ideal surfactants for modern cosmetic formulations. APG´s have low surface tension and strong detergency. They are very compatible with electrolytes and other surfactants and can improve the mildness of formulations when combined with standard surfactants (e.g. sodium laureth sulfate).
They can be used as main surfactants or co-surfactants. Our CosVivet APG´s have solubilizing, emulsifiying and thickening properties and create rich and stable foam in rinse off formulations.
