Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside is a mild, solubilising non-ionic surfactant obtained from renewable raw materials, fatty alcohols and glucose from vegetable origin.

Caprylyl/Capryl glucoside

Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside is a glucose alkyl ether that contains 60% active matter and is ECOCERT Certified, preservative free and free of impurities.

In addition to being an excellent, gentle cleansing surfactant in your skin care products, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside is also a highly effective solubilizing agent for essential oils and fragrances as well as cationic surfactants. Due to this dual purpose, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside is an excellent choice for the formulation of foaming aromatherapy products.


A clear to light yellow viscous liquid (clearer than most other glucosides), which increases the foaming capacity in skincare and haircare products. It also has the excellent benefit of acting as an emulsifier to allow essential oils and water to mix. Using Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside you can also blend some denser oils, such as carrier oils into your products.

Combines well with other glucosides to make a complete foaming shower gel / shampoo. Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside gives a nice balance of flash foam and denser foam. To increase foam density add coco and decyl glucosides.
