Coco Symplex (Coco Glucoside) Surfactant

Choose Size

A biodegradable surfactant. Compared to Decyl Glucoside which is thin, coco symplex is viscous and similar to honey. These non ionic surfactants do not bear an electrical charge and are often used together with anionic surfactants such as bio-terge AS40 or Cocamidopropyl Betaine. . An advantage is that they do not interact with calcium and magnesium ions in hard water.  Derived from plant sugars and fatty alcohols, it is very mild compared to traditional anionic surfactants. 

1% to 2% fragrance/essential oil without the need of a solubilizer.

Used to thicken your natural homemade liquid soap without clumps or synthetic harsh properties. Also, great in combination with other gentle surfactants in shampoo bars.It is a very gentle non ionic surfactant mix that is produced by a chemical reaction between glucose and coconut oil-derived ingredients. Non-ionic are more surface-active and better emulsifiers than anionic at similar concentrations. They are also more efficient in removing oily and organic dirt than anionic. If more foam is required in your formulation, add Cocamidapropyl Betaine.

Unlike Sodium Laurel Sulphate which is synthetic based and has a very high skin irritation potential. The reason you find SLS in many commercial products is that it is inexpensive & foams up really well.

Shampoo and Body Wash: 30% - 45%
Facial Cleanser or Baby Wash: 15% - 25%

This is a surfactant, that is very mild and skin-friendly, derived from coconut oil and fruit sugar. In haircare products it smooths hair structure and improves manageability. Safe and Gentle enough for baby and mild cleansing products.

Provides good foaming and foam liquid stabilization with excellent wetting properties. No need to heat. Due to the viscous nature of this surfactant, mixing it with other liquid surfactants will require sufficient hand mixing to make it blend properly. Using a blender may cause increased foam.

Shelf: 24 Months when Properly Stored
