Benefits of Decyl Glucoside for the Skin

Gentle cleansing

Decyl Glucoside is a gentle cleanser that removes dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin without stripping away its natural oils. It is an important ingredient in our Hydrating Facial Cleanser. The ingredient is suitable for use on sensitive skin and can help maintain the skin's natural pH balance.


Decyl Glucoside is a non-irritating surfactant that is well-tolerated by most skin types. It does not cause stinging, burning, or other types of irritation, making it a good choice for people with sensitive skin.


Decyl Glucoside can also help to moisturize and soften the skin. Its low molecular weight allows it to penetrate the skin and deliver hydration to the deeper layers.


Decyl glucoside is a biodegradable surfactant that is considered to be environmentally friendly. It breaks down quickly and easily in the environment, making it a sustainable choice for skincare products.

Enhances texture

Decyl glucoside can help to improve the texture and feel of the skin. It can leave the skin feeling soft, smooth, and refreshed, without any greasiness or residue. 

Decyl Glucoside is a gentle, effective, and sustainable ingredient that can benefit the skin in many ways. It is commonly found in facial cleansers, body washes, and other skincare products. You can find this ingredient in our Hydrating Facial Cleanser that won't strip skin barrier.
