Abstract: Alkyl polyglucoside surfactants are obtained from renewable, plant-derived raw materials. Compatibility test results and exemplary formulations presented here show that alkyl polyglucosides enable cosmetic chemists to formulate mild body cleansing formulations that fulfill the new “green” formulation trend and enable the formulation of alkyl sulfate-free and ethoxylate-free cleansing concepts.

Natural-sourced, plant-based renewable raw materials are the key drivers influencing the modern day chemicals-based market. They offer innovative possibilities to connect with consumers and their expectations for sustainable and “green” chemicals in the personal care segment. This article demonstrates that alkyl polyglucosides are green; i.e., natural-sourced, plant-based and renewable, in addition to being mild, as demonstrated here in screening tests and formulations.
