Alkyl polyglycoside: a biodegradable surfactant
The glucose in alkyl polyglycoside is derived from plants. As such, APG is biodegradable and environmentally-friendly. This makes alkyl polyglycoside the green alternative for other surfactants, such as nonyl phenol ethoxylates (NPEs) and alcohol ethoxylates. APG is nonionic surfactant that is perfect for the formulation of personal care products and cleaning agents. Alkyl polyglycoside is used in the formulation of many cosmetics as it is mild and safe for sensitive skin. It also offers good foaming and wetting properties, as well as low surface tension.
