A clear to light yellow viscous liquid 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.
It gives a nice balance of flash foam and denser foam.
To increase foam density add coco and decyl glucosides.
