What it is
Coco-Glucoside is a mixture of fatty alcohol from coconut and glucose that can be derived from plants or made in a lab.
What it does
Coco-Glucoside is a gentle cleansing agent: it helps water mix with oils and dirt so they can be rinsed away. It foams well and doesn’t irritate skin, which is why it is often used in baby products. It can also be used to reduce the harshness of other cleansing agents.
In addition, it helps keep the oily and watery parts of an emulsion from separating.
Coco-Glucoside is generally considered to be safe.
