A biodegradable surfactant. Compared to Decyl Glucoside which is thin, coco symplex is viscous and similar to honey.  These nonionic 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.

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 nonionic surfactant mix that is produced by a chemical reaction between glucose and coconut oil-derived ingredients. Nonionic are more surface-active and better emulsifiers than anionics at similar concentrations. They are also more efficient in removing oily and organic dirt than anionics. If more foam is required in your formulation, add coco betaine.

Unlike Sodium Lauryl Sulfate 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. 

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

PH:  10

It is biodegradable

This is a surfactant, that is very mild and skin-friendly, derived from coconut oil and fruit sugar. In hair care products it smoothes 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.

    Can Coco glucoside be used in bath bombs?

    Have not tried. I assume the ph may cause problems as citric acid is acidic and the coco symplex is alkali. But then on the other hand baking soda is alkali. I have heard of using cocobetaine in bath bombs formulas for foam. If you give it a try, please let us know.

    I have one really fussy market that I go to that wants me to have an MSDS ( SDS) for all non edible ingredients. I saw several different manufacturers listed and I want to make sure I download the right one. Thank you.

    does this need to be heated or treated a certain way before mixing in the batch? or just stirring would work?

    Thanks for checking in Rizwan, No need to heat for treat it a certain way. We use it in our room temperature bubble bath base along with coco betaine and castile soap made in our facility. As it is thick it needs to be mixed well in your formulation. Let us know how we can be of further assistance. Just love the product.
