Miscible with water and many polar solvents. Hydrotrope

A water-miscible non-ionic surfactant used in a wide range of applications including hard surface and high performance cleaners, cosmetics, it has excellent wetting and excellent grease removal properties, dissolves quickly, has no gel range and rinses well. It is commonly used as a water-soluble emulsifier.


  • Easily biodegradable
  • Provides performance analogous to that of nonylphenol ethoxylate (NPE) surfactants and in most cases performs better than primary alcohol ethoxylate (PAE) surfactants.
  • Excellent wetting performance
  • Water soluble
  • Soluble in most polar organic solvents
  • Chemically stable in dilute acids, bases and salts
  • Compatible with anionic, cationic and other non-ionic surfactants

In cosmetics, alkyl polyglycosides or APGs are used as surfactants of a non-ionic nature. They are considered as a new generation of green surfactants that are considered non-allergenic, moisturizing and produced from renewable sources. Caprylyl glycosides are used in various cosmetic formulations due to their gentleness and safety on sensitive skin. This surfactant has a good foaming and moisturizing effect and reduces surface tension. APG can be found in organic shampoos, laundry detergents, body washes, baby products, body lotions, creams and other products. Concentrations ranging from 2% to 30% are used, depending on whether it is used as a primary or secondary surfactant. For example: 10% to 20% (face wash), 15% to 30% (shower gel, bath foam, shampoo).

In the cleaning industry, caprylyl glycoside is used in the production of hard surface cleaners, strong-acting cleaners, concentrates. Due to its strong wetting properties and good emulsifying properties, it is excellent at allowing the water and the grease phase to mix, thus facilitating cleaning processes. Its high foaming properties make it ideal for use in the production of active foams. Due to its natural nature, it is ideal for use in cleaning products that are used outdoors and may come into contact with nature.

In paints and coatings, caprylyl glycoside is used to increase the wetting effect of the surface in order to achieve better adhesion to the surface, while at the same time facilitating the mixing of the fatty phase ingredients with the aqueous phase ingredients.

In agriculture, APG is used to spray fields and plants with a variety of formulations in order to increase the efficiency of foliar uptake. Alkyl polyglycoside is analogous to polyglycosides in plant cell membranes and therefore wets the leaf surface, making it easier for the spray to adhere and stay on the leaf, thus increasing contact time and uptake efficiency. At the same time, it allows a more even distribution of the active substances, which are often hydrophobic and tend to persist in two different phases.

In the textile industry, it is used to clean heavily contaminated fabrics from soiling of fatty or protein origin.

In the paper industry, it is used in the formulation of paper to obtain better adhesion, denser structure.

In school experiments, oxirane is used in surface wetting experiments, "magic milk" art experiments. In scientific research, it is used to study the permeability of cell membranes, as APG is naturally found in cells of plant origin.
