Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside

A sugar-based plant derived surfactant used to solubilize oils into water and other ingredients which typically are not capable of mixing. It is obtained from renewable raw materials of vegetable origin. Capryly and capryl are names to describe fatty acid molecules of different length – 8 carbons long for caprylyl and 10 for capryl. The ‘glucoside’ in its name indicates that a glucose molecule is attached to these fatty acids.
