Coco Glucoside is produced through a chemical reaction between fruit sugars and ingredients in coconut oil, hence the name. It is an all-natural non-ionic surfactant. This means that it lowers the surface tension of two liquids and actually acts to keep everything together. A surfactant is important to give products an amazing texture and viscosity. Coco Glucoside is mostly used to keep ingredients together and creating the perfect viscosity (not too runny, not too thick). It is one of the mildest and gentle cleansing agents available.
