Decyl glucoside is a mild non-ionic surfactant used in cosmetic formularies, including baby shampoo and in products for individuals with a sensitive skin. 
Many natural personal care companies use this cleanser because Decyl glucoside is plant-derived, biodegradable, and gentle for all hair types.
Decyl Glucoside is a biodegradable nonionic surfactant derived from Cocos nucifera (coconut) and/or RSPO Palm and is an aqueous solution of a C8-C16 fatty alcohol polyglucoside. 
Decyl glucoside has great foaming capacity and is mild and gentle on the skin. 
Decyl glucoside can be used as the only surfactant or can be a co-surfactant in cleansing formulas.

Decyl Glucoside is a, natural, non-ionic surfactant, ideal for all foaming and cleansing products. 
Like Coco Glucoside, Decyl Glucoside is , obtained from renewable raw materials, through a combination of plant based fatty alcohols (coconut c8-16) and glucose (sugar / starch). Decyl Glucoside is a mild, and gentle, surfactant and because it does not dry the skin it is ideal for the formulation of personal hygiene and toiletry products. Decyl Glucoside is comparable to the other Alky Polyglucoside Surfactants (Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside (c8-10), Coco Glucoside (c8-16), and Lauryl Glucoside (c12-16)) all being the combination of the glucoside and select fatty alcohols.
Decyl Glucoside generates an exceptional foam for a nonionic surfactant, whatever the conditions. 
Decyl glucoside produces a very satisfactory level of foam, comparable with that obtained using conventional anionic surfactants. 
Moreover, Decyl glucoside obtained is particularly stable, which is an advantage for the formulation of bubble baths and shower gels. 
Decyl glucoside generated is fine and stable.

Decyl Glucoside is considered to be a mild surfactant which does not irritate your skin and hence extensively used in many skincare and hair care products, baby products, cleaning products, personal care products such as:
-Shampoos
-Conditioners
-Mousse
-Skin Cleansers

-Bubble Baths
-Bath Oils
-Body Washes
-Liquid Hand Washes
-Wipes
-Shaving Foams
-Tooth Pastes
-Hair Colours
-Hair Straightening Products
-Baby Products
-Detergents
Due to its thickening and foaming abilities, Decyl Glucoside is widely used in almost all the products that we use our daily life.

USES OF DECYL GLUCOSIDE 
Most of the people thick surfactants to be mere cleaners but actually they do a lot more than just cleaning. 
Decyl glucoside is used in a wide range of beauty and personal care products. 
Let us find out some of the common uses of Decyl Glucoside:
-As a non-ionic surfactant Decyl Glucoside works by wrapping around oil and lowering its surface tension so that you can get rid of dirt along with grime while washing, Due to this property, Decyl Glucoside is extensively used in anti-dandruff shampoos, hair conditioners, gels.
-Decyl Glucoside helps to solubilise the oils, active ingredients and extracts in the formulation, thus giving a crystal clear formulation.
-You can always use Decyl Glucoside as a room spray solubiliser. 
-Adding 3 part of Decyl Glucoside to 1 part of perfume can fill your room with fragrance and freshness, that you might have experienced never before.
-Decyl Glucoside can be a great addition to emulsions, like creams, lotions and enhances its skin cleansing property. 1-5% will be sufficient as anything more than this can compete with an emulsifier and destabilize the formula.
-Being mild and gentle on your skin, Decyl Glucoside can be used in products which stay on your skin for a longer time, such as face masks. 
-You can add little Decyl Glucoside to your face mask, as they are difficult to remove after some time. 
-Decyl glucoside will also enhance the cleansing property of your mask.
-Decyl Glucoside can be used in makeup removing solutions. 
-1-4% of Decyl Glucoside can be added to water-based makeup removers and you can get rid of all the dirt, grime and makeup from your face in no time.
-Decyl Glucoside not only acts as a mild, nonionic surfactant but possesses excellent cleansing properties as well, hence can be paired with other nonionic, anionic or amphoteric surfactants, thereby providing an excellent alternative for sulphate free cleaning products with enhanced performance.
These are some of the best uses of Decyl Glucoside. 
Being mild and gentle on your skin, and enhancing the foaming property, Decyl Glucoside has a wide range of uses. 
Decyl Glucoside frequently keeps popping up every now and then in the ingredient list of your favourite haircare and skincare range.

Decyl-glucoside is biodegradable and considered gentle due to its low risk of skin irritation. 
Decyl glucoside is unique because despite not containing sulfates, it has a superior ability to create and maintain a foamy lather. 
For this reason, Decyl glucoside's often used in baby shampoos and shampoos for those with scalp irritation.

In contrast, Decyl glucosides touch is not comparable with that of a foam obtained using anionic surfactants. 
For this reason Decyl glucoside is advisable to combine Decyl Glucoside with our Cocamidopropyl Betaine or Foaming Soy in order to improve the smoothness of the foam. 
Furthermore, because of Decyl glucosides wide range of compatibility, Decyl Glucoside can be combined with all types of surfactants without reducing foam volume or stability.
Decyl Glucoside, used as a co-surfactant, can reduce the total active requirements of other foaming ingredients, without altering their performance; cleansing effectiveness, foam volume, and ease of thickening, are all maintained while improving on the mild, and gentle, nature of the final formulation.
Decyl Glucoside does not contain any impurities. 
Decyl glucosides chemical nature and the production process results in a surfactant without ethylene oxide or 1,4-dioxane and is suitable for baby, and pet, products.

All natural plant derived Decyl Glucoside is a premium non ionic surfactant derived from natural and renewable feedstock. 
Decyl glucoside is used for formulating many quality products like liquid soaps, shampoos , body washes, and high quality institutional cleansers.
Decyl Glucoside is a fatty polyglycoside prepared by reacting cornstarch glucose with Natural fatty alcohol.
Decyl Glucoside is highly recommended for use in shampoos, shower gels, bubble baths, hand and face cleansers, and other applications where mildness and cleansing performance are required. 
Decyl glucoside contains no solvents or hydrotropes and is easily formulated in personal care products. 
Being nonionic, Decyl Glucoside is compatible with cationic surfactants and polymers, and is recommended for conditioning shampoo formulations. 
Due to Decyl glucosides natural chemistry, decyl glucoside is very mild and low in toxicity.

Decyl Glucoside Features and Benefits
Perfume Solubilisation in bubble bath/ shampoo/ body wash
Have you ever wanted to add more perfume to your shampoo or bubble bath but just couldn't get it to work? 
Well that was me until I started to experiment with decyl glucoside. 
As a non-ionic that works by wrapping around oils they also work well as solubilisers so adding a non-ionic to your surfactant blend will not only give you a great and mild clean it will also enable you to max out your senses in terms of essential oil or fragrance overload. 
Well, when I say 'max out' I am talking about anything from 0.6-2.5% typically. 
Fragrances are complex beasts and one-size-won't-fit-all but as a general rule adding 4-5% decyl glucoside into your surfactant mix will help with perfume solubilisation.
 
Active Solubilisation in a bubble bath/ shampoo/ body wash.
Decyl glucoside is not uncommon these days to want to put other oil soluble additives and moisturizers into our surfactant products and that's where Decyl Glucoside really can help. 
Decyl glucoside can help solubilise your extracts, actives and oils so that you end up with a crystal clear product naturally (cloudy = not fully solubilised).
Decyl Glucoside is a natural, non-ionic surfactant and emulsifier, ideal for all foaming and cleansing products. 
Decyl glucoside is a combination of plant based fatty alcohols (coconut c8-16) and glucose.
 
Fragrance Solubilisation in a spritzer or room spray.
If you are not a fan of ethoxylated surfactants you can try decyl glucoside as your room spray solubiliser. 
Adding 3 parts solubiliser to 1 part perfume is a good place to start. 
Decyl glucoside will foam a little but that is a small price to pay for a naturally beautiful product. 
You can always reduce the foaming with airless bottles or with a vegetable based anti-foam if you are that way inclined. 
Otherwise just buy an aluminium, frosted or coloured container and nobody will ever know!
 
Adding into emulsions to turn them into cleansing creams.
Because Decyl glucoside is a mild, nonionic surfactant decyl glucoside can be added into emulsions such as cream or lotion bases to provide some cleansing action. 
Take care not to add too much 1-5% is usually sufficient - as Decyl glucoside will compete with the emulsifier a little and destabilize the formula. 
However, if done correctly you can make a really moisturizing cream cleanser naturally in just a few easy steps all thanks to decyl glucoside.
 
As a mild surfactant for wash products.
Decyl glucoside isn't just a solubiliser, decyl glucoside is also a great cleansing active and can be paired either with other non-ionics or with anionic and amphoteric surfactants for a modern sulfate free cleansing product with great performance. 
Decyl Glucoside will not thicken with salt like the traditional anionic/ amphoteric blend so I tend to use it as the third (tertiary) surfactant to make the overall blend milder and help with foam and perfume stability rather than use it as the main active. 
If you do want to use Decyl glucoside as the main active thickening with xanthan gum works a treat and remains natural!
 
Decyl Glucoside is a natural detergent, non-ionic surfactant, acquired from renewable materials such as fatty alcohols or plants glucose. 
Decyl glucoside has higher foaming and purifying abilities than Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS). 
Decyl glucoside is perfect for micellar liquids, face cleaning gels and make up removers, as it is very gentle to the eyes. 
Decyl Glucoside is very well tolerated by human skin and can be used to create mild cleaning cosmetics..
Decyl glucoside is easy to thicken by combining it with other non-ionic surfactants or both natural and synthetic polymers. 
Used Decyl glucoside with betanin, cause foam to be nicer in touch.

Decyl glucoside can be used independently or as an addition to other surfactants. 
Decyl glucoside is safe and biodegradable . 
Decyl glucoside does not irritate or dry skin.

Decyl glucoside usage:
-Cleaning gels
-Shampoos
-Face cleaning products
-Micellar liquids
-dips
-Make-up removers

Add Decyl glucoside to clay masks to help in their removal.
As Decyl Glucoside is so mild on the skin it can be used in products that are left on the skin for a period of time. 
Face masks can be difficult to remove so I like to add a little surfactant in the mix to help with the after-use rinsing. 
Decyl Glucoside is one way to achieve this without running the risk of irritating your skin. 
2-5% is enough usually as you don't want it to interfere with the mask setting time.
 
In gentle eye make-up removers.
The high foaming potential of Decyl Glucoside makes it less attractive for eye cleansing applications but if used correctly that low irritation score and great cleansing power can be put to good use. 
Use at 1-4% in a water based gel cleanser.
 
As a foam stabilizer.
In the old days Cocamide DEA was the ingredient of choice for boosting foam, these days Decyl glucoside can be used to give the boost without the environmental issues - Cocamide DEA is not sustainably sourced and the ethanolamine part is petroleum based. 
Cocamide DEA can also release nitrosamines into a formulation under certain situations and while these are regulated and formulated to keep within safe levels some people do wish to remove all traces from cosmetics.

Decyl glucoside is a surfactant used as an additive or a co-surfactant in skin and hair products, e.g. in soaps, body washes (for cleansing), wetting agents (in perms), foaming agents ( for shampoos), emulsifiers (in creams and lotions), conditioning agents (in skin and hair-care products). 
Decyl glucoside is widely used in many products because it is of plant origin, biodegradable and considered gentle. 
Further research may identify additional product or industrial usages of Decyl glucoside.

Solubility: Water

Decyl glucoside is one of several non-ionic surfactants found within the polyglycoside family. 
Decyl glucosides obtained from the sugars and fatty alcohols found within coconuts, making it a naturally derived renewable resource.  
Decyl glucosides these types of ingredients that provide the mild and gentle "sudsing" base for body washes, facial cleansers, shampoos, bubble bath, and other liquid cleansing formulations.
Decyl glucosides often that I hear, "I would never use surfactants in my formulations!" 
Of course Decyl glucoside all comes down to personal preferences, and I do feel that the majority of surfactants are not suitable for skincare but that doesn't mean that all are created equally or that all hold the same purposes in the world of cleaning and cleansing.  
Since there are limited ways that one can actually "make soap" we must select the option that works best for our formulation.  
You can use the lye and water method, or you can use surfactants.  
Besides these two forms of soap making there are precious few other ways of making a high quality suds-ing action product.
Need to make a baby wash, or how about a pet safe shampoo? 

Sensitive skin formulation?  
You are all pretty much covered when selecting decyl glucoside as your base. 
Simple blending techniques are used, just add your other water based additives and stir, adjust the pH of the finished product using either citric acid or lactic acid - thicken if desired and you are finished.  
You can add oil based ingredients to surfactants, however, depending upon the ratio added you will notice a decrease in the lathering ability.  
Your own testing will need to be performed as to how much oil your formulation can hold.
Decyl glucoside is approved for use within Whole Foods formulations, and Decyl glucoside holds a green scale rating of "1" on the Skin Deep / EWG website.   
Decyl glucoside is sulfate free.

Patient Information
Your patch test result indicates that you have a contact allergy to decyl glucoside.

How can you avoid contact with decyl glucoside?
Avoid products that list any of the following names in the ingredients:
-D-Glucopyranoside, decyl
-Glucoside, decy

Decyl Glucoside is a result of the mixture of glucose, which is produced from corn starch, and fatty alcohol decanol, which is extracted from coconut. 
Decyl means a group of univalent radicals obtained from decane by subtracting one hydrogen atom. 
Glucoside, on the other hand, is a kind of glycoside that is commonly found in plants all over the world and rarely in animals. 
Decyl glucoside can be seen in leaves and branches of an Egyptian tree called a Desert Date. 
This tree grows in Middle Eastern and African countries.  
Decyl glucoside is known as d-glucoside decyl, bd-glucopyranoside or decyl-bd-glucopyranoside. 
Aklyl Plyglucosides or APG is often used as the general term for Decyl Glucoside.

Decyl Glucoside is a natural ingredient used in disinfectant and cleansing products such as face wash, shampoos, baby bath products, and hypoallergenic soaps. 
Decyl glucoside is an ideal chemical for individuals with sensitive skin because it is produced naturally, collected from 100% renewable materials and safe to the atmosphere.

The primary use of this ingredient in hair and skin products is as a surfactant. 
Surfactants are compounds that decrease the surface tension of the products they are added in, to help them get rid of dirt and oils more efficiently. 
Decyl glucoside is quickly becoming a popular alternative to other surfactants on the market because it is organic and biodegradable – a factor that most parents, especially mothers, take into significant consideration when buying products for their babies.

Decyl Glucoside is sometimes referred to as “non-iconic surfactant” in the ingredient list of hair and skin products, as well as cleansers and detergents.  
In general, this type of surfactant is rarely found in bath goods because of its slow ability to create viscosity and foaming. 
But since it is labeled safe, gentle, and skin-friendly by most manufacturing companies, it is building up its reputation among new mothers.

The commercial production of Decyl Glucoside takes numerous, complicated steps and often in extreme conditions.  
Decyl glucosides first ever recorded production dates back as far as 1893. 
Decyl glucoside was produced by mixing anhydrous ethanol and glucose to create ethyl glucoside. 
Decyl glucoside can also be formulated by condensing glucose polymer with decyl alcohol.

Today, Decyl Glucoside is widely obtained from a mixture of glucose from corn starch and decanol from coconuts.  
One of the main reasons why Decyl glucoside is ideal for baby soaps and body cleansers is its capability of making bath products lather and thicken quickly while still retaining their ability to moisturize and thoroughly cleanse the body. 
Decyl glucoside also doesn’t make the skin dry which makes it even more vital in the mixture of hygiene goods.

Being a surfactant helps Decyl Glucoside to form a foam that is rich and long-lasting. 
Decyl glucoside is used in anti-aging facial foaming washes and as an alternative to other harmful chemicals in skin products. 
Decyl glucoside can work on its own and still work as efficiently as three other chemicals in a facial wash without decreasing its cleansing and moisturizing abilities.

What are some products that may contain decyl glucoside?
-Body Washes
-Cleansers and Cleaning Cloths
-Hair Color Products

Why do we use Decyl glucoside in formulations?    
Decyl glucoside can be a good primary or secondary surfactant, contributing foaming/cleansing to an end product. 
Decyl glucoside has a really rich, dense lather that is lovely in our formulations.

decyl D-glucopyranoside
decyl D-glucoside
decyl dextro-glucoside
D-glucopyranoside, decyl

Is Decyl glucoside refined or unrefined?    
Decyl Glucoside only exists as a refined product.

Decyl glucoside Strengths    
Decyl Glucoside is a relatively easy to source “natural” surfactant with lovely lather.

Is Decyl Glucoside Safe For Baby?  
Yes as Decyl glucoside does not cause irritation
Unlike other compounds and surfactants found in cosmetics, Decyl Glucoside is proven to cause lesser probabilities of inflammation and irritation.  
The compound has also been found to boost certain antimicrobial agents. 
When applied to the healthy skin, there have been no adverse effects to report. 
In fact, the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel has concluded, after making a safety assessment, that Decyl Glucoside is safe, non-inflammatory, and non-irritating. 
The test was conducted on 19 alkyl glucosides. 
That is precisely why Decyl glucoside is an ideal ingredient for skin care products.

Is Decyl Glucoside Safe For Baby? 
Decyl Glucoside is known to help quickly remove grimes and stains on the skin.  
But one of Decyl glucosides most vital characteristics is its ability to keep the moisture on the skin while cleaning it. 
Decyl glucoside can decrease the surface tension of the product’s formulation, making it successful in stabilizing both water and oil properties of the product.

Environmentally-friendly
When chemists started creating non-ionic surfactants back in the 80’s, it was mostly made up of nonyl-phenyl ethoxylates. 
Decyl glucoside family was useful in its job but was environmentally toxic. 
Decyl Glucoside derives from organic products such as corn and coconut. 
The glucose from corn and the decanol from coconut, when combined, produce this environmentally-friendly chemical. 
And Decyl glucoside’s because of its accessibility and natural processes that it became a favorite ingredient in making formulations for skin care products. 
Decyl glucoside is one of the few toxin-free chemicals that do not produce carcinogen ethylene oxide as a byproduct of manufacturing.

Decyl glucosides other organic alternative, the alkyl glucoside, can be mixed with the glucose from wheat starch or potatoes and decanol from rapeseed oil or palm trees.  
Rinse-off products such as facial washes, liquid cleansers, shower gels, shampoos contain both natural byproducts. 
Decyl glucosides are also mixed with the mixture of sunscreens and deodorants.

Potent in creating foam
Decyl Glucoside is a must-have in numerous cosmetics laboratory all over the world not only because of its mildness and cleansing properties. 
Decyl glucoside is found to be potent in producing foam and lather among beauty and skin products. 
In recent times, there have been adverse reports about foaming products stating that they are wrong for the skin. 
That is not the case with Decyl Glucoside. 
When combined with citric ingredients, Decyl glucoside can lock in moisture and balance pH on the surface while creating a creamy, soft foam.  
Decyl glucoside’s great for all skin types.

Weaknesses    
Decyl glucoside has a fairly high pH and isn’t a great solubilizer; I tend to choose Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside over the other glucosides.

Alternatives & Substitutions    
I tend to prefer Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside in any recipe that calls for decyl glucoside, though the lather of Decyl Glucoside is richer + thicker, so I might blend Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside and Decyl Glucoside to get some of the solubilizing powers of Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside and the lather of Decyl Glucoside.

How to Work with Decyl glucoside    
Include Decyl glucoside in the water phase of your formulations; Decyl glucoside can be hot or cold processed.

Decyl Glucoside, (C10-16) Alkyl D-Glycopyranoside)  aqueous solution is a premium surfactant derived from natural and renewable resources, for compounding of all types of top quality and top performing soaps, shampoos , body washes, and high quality detergent items.

Is Decyl Glucoside A Sulfate?
Often, shampoo and soap manufacturers use "sulfate-free" as an adjective to describe their products' properties. 
While the term "SLS-free" might have some truth in Decyl glucoside, due to the exclusion of the harmful component - sodium lauryl sulfate, decyl glucoside is not sulfate-free.
Decyl glucoside is made from sodium coco-sulfate, a derivative of the fatty acids found in coconuts, and sodium coco-sulfate is made from a blend of the fatty acids in coconut oil. 
Decyl glucoside is a safer alternative to sodium lauryl sulfate, or SLS, due to its natural origin. 
Decyl glucoside's less irritating to the skin and does not carry any carcinogenic properties.

What Are The Side Effects Of Decyl Glucoside?
Compared to many other alkyl polyglucoside surfactants, decyl glucoside is 100% safe due to its non-toxic and biodegradable nature. 
Decyl glucoside comes from a 100% natural vegetable origin. 
Decyl glucoside is gentle and delicate, so much so that Decyl glucoside can be used in sprays for fruits and vegetables.

The Cosmetic Ingredient Review expert panel, or the CIR, deemed decyl glucoside as completely safe for use, amongst its assessment of nineteen other alkyl glucosides. 
However, in rare cases, when the individual is hypersensitive towards decyl glucoside, there could be irritation, redness, itching, or burning on the skin.

In some cases, this results in contact dermatitis, when the individual has type-4 hypersensitivity to decyl glucoside. 
In such situations, Decyl glucoside is best to consult a dermatologist. 
The probability of such an occurrence, however, is incredibly low.

Why we use Decyl Glucoside
Decyl glucoside is a mild non-ionic surfactant that is obtained from renewable raw materials, through a combination of plant based fatty alcohols. 
Surfactants work by lowering the surface tension of products they’re added to, helping them remove dirt and oils more effectively while stabilizing oil and water mixtures.

Decyl glucoside has an ability to lather easily and thicken while retaining skin moisture even when used repeatedly. 
Additionally, Decyl glucoside helps to prevent skin dryness. All of these great features make an ideal ingredient for skin cleansers and shampoos.

C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside and Cetearyl Glucoside are reported to function as surfactants - emulsifying agents, while Ethyl Glucoside is reported to function as a skin-conditioning agent - humectant.

Are people allergic to Decyl glucoside?
In typical formulations, Decyl glucoside’s gentle, non-irritating, non-allergenic, non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, and doesn’t have any known adverse effects on bodily organs or on reproductive health. 
Decyl glucoside’s the ideal surfactant for people who have sensitive skin and those who are worried about the health effects of other surfactants. 
Decyl Glucoside does not contain any impurities. 
Decyl glucosides chemical nature and the production process results in a surfactant without ethylene oxide and is suitable for baby, and pet products.

Decyl glucoside has superior ability to form and hold stable foam for a non-ionic surfactant. 
Decyl glucoside is ideal for bath products like bubble baths. 
For products that require even better foaming ability, Decyl glucoside’s combined with other surfactants. 
Tolerant of high electrolyte formulations and because decyl glucoside is a mild surfactant that doesn’t irritate the skin, products that may contain this all important ingredient include shampoos, conditioners, bubble baths, cleansers, shower gels, bath oils, dermatological liquid soaps, wipes, body washes, shaving foams, liquid soaps, toothpaste, hair coloring, hair straightening products and permanent wave solutions.

Decyl glucoside’s also a common ingredient in baby shampoo and a perfect ingredient in shaving creams and facial cleansers since it foams well and is gentle for all hair types.
Decyl glucoside is also used in anti–dandruff shampoo treatments, eczema creams and lotions and many other skin care regiments. 
The inevitability of encountering Decyl glucoside is slim because Decyl glucoside is a common ingredient in most skin care products and hair care products as well.

Decyl glucoside products to use in

Safety First
In addition to our precautions and general safety information, we always recommend keeping a first aid kit nearby. 
You are working with hot water and oils, accidents can happen, so always be prepared!

Scientific Facts about Decyl glucoside: 
Arachidyl proprionate (or glucoside)  is NOT derived from peanuts (Arachis hypogaea).  
Therefore, use of this ingredient in cosmetic products does not represent an allergy concern for children (or adults) with peanut allergies.  
Alkyl glucosides consist of alkyl groups bound to glucose in the D-glycopyranoside form. 
The glucose portion of the compound may consist of mono-, di-, tri-, oligo- or polysaccharides. 
For example, Decyl Glucoside with a degree of polymerization of 1.6 is a mixture of decyl monosaccharide (glucopyranoside) and decyl disaccharide (also called maltopyranoside). 
These ingredients are generally sold as aqueous solutions containing 50-65% of the ingredient.

Safety Information: 
The safety of Decyl Glucoside, Arachidyl Glucoside, C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside, Cetearyl Glucoside, Coco-Glucoside, Ethyl Glucoside and Lauryl Glucoside has been assessed by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel. 
The CIR Expert Panel evaluated the scientific data and concluded that these ingredients were safe for use in cosmetics when formulated to be non-irritating.

CIR Safety Review:

The CIR Expert Panel reviewed a study that indicated that Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside (alkyl chain length: a mixture of 8 and 10 carbons in length) was not readily absorbed through the skin. 
At high concentrations Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside was irritating and long-term skin irritation resulted in other adverse effects including body weight loss. 
No other adverse effects were observed at concentrations that did not cause skin irritation. 
Lauryl Glucoside was not a reproductive or developmental toxicant. 
Alkyl glucoside ingredients have not been found to be genotoxic. 
Clinical tests of products containing alkyl glucoside ingredients have found that the products were not dermal irritants or sensitizers.
