Coco Glucoside Natural Surfactant
Coco Glucoside is an non-ionic surfactant that can be use as a foaming, cleansing, conditioning, and thickening agent to liquid cleansers and shampoos. In addition, It is derived from renewable raw materials such as coconut oil and corn and fruit sugars and is completely biodegradable. Moreover, It is GMO-free and contains no diethanolamine’s, lauryl sulfates, laurate sulfates, parabens and phthalates, or formaldehyde.
The 980 represents the specific molecular weight and composition of the polymer. Carbomer 980 polymer is a thickening agent that helps control the viscosity and rhealogy of cosmetic products. It also helps distribute and suspend insoluble solids into liquid. Our Coco Glucoside Natural Surfactant also prevents the oil and liquid parts of a solution from separating.
At low temperatures, surfactants may undergo a phenomenon called “gel formation,” in which the surfactant molecules arrange themselves in a specific structure.
To address this, gently heating the product can liquefy the hardened surfactant. This can be done by either passing hot water over the container or diluting the solution with water to break down the gel-like structure.
Coco Glucoside is commonly used in various personal care and cosmetic products, including shampoos, liquid cleansers, and body washes, due to its gentle yet effective cleansing properties and its environmentally friendly profile.
Regarding the note about gel formation at low temperatures, this can occur with certain surfactants. Gently heating the product or diluting it with water can help re-liquefy the surfactant and restore the desired consistency. It’s important for formulators to be aware of such characteristics when working with surfactants to ensure product stability and performance.
