Method of Manufacture 
The pathways for methyl glucoside ester and polyether methyl glucoside synthesis are diagrammed in Figure 1. 
Manufacture of methyl glucoside esters, such as Methyl Glucose Caprylate/Caprate, Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Methyl Glucose Isostearate, Methyl Glucose Laurate, Methyl Glucose Sesquicaprylate/Sesquicaprate, Methyl Glucose Sesquicocoate, Methyl Glucose Sesquiisostearate, Methyl Glucose Sesquilaurate, Methyl Glucose Sesquioleate, and Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, is typically achieved via transesterification of an appropriate fatty acid methyl ester (e.g., methyl laurate to get Methyl Glucose Laurate) with methyl glucoside (releasing methanol as a by-product).
However, esterifications via a variety of other classical techniques, such as reacting the free fatty acids with methyl glucoside and a catalyst, are also known methods of manufacture for these ingredients.
Under most conditions, the primary alcohol group at C6 of the methyl glucoside core is the most reactive to esterification and is the first site to be substituted. The polyether methyl glucosides, such as PPG-10 Methyl Glucose Ether, PPG-20 Methyl Glucose Ether, PPG-25 Methyl Glucose Ether, Methyl Gluceth-10, and Methyl Gluceth-20, are typically manufactured by reaction of methyl glucoside with the required amount of the appropriate epoxide (e.g., propylene oxide is used to produce PPG-10 Methyl Glucose; ethylene oxide is utilized to produce Methyl Gluceth-10). 
For those ingredients with both ester and polyether groups, such as PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, PEG-20 Methyl Glucose Distearate, PEG-80 Methyl Glucose Laurate, PEG-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquicaprylate/ Sesquicaprate, PEG-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquilaurate, PEG-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Triisostearate, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Trioleate, PPG-20 Methyl Glucose Ether Acetate, and PPG-20 Methyl Glucose Ether Distearate, these same methods are utilized, sequentially. 
An example would be PEG-80 Methyl Glucose Laurate, which is produced in two steps: 
1) esterification of methyl glucoside with methyl laurate, followed by 
2) polyetherification with ethylene oxide. 
The following information on methyl glucoside (methyl α-D-glucopyranoside) is included because it forms the backbone of methyl glucose polyethers and esters reviewed in this safety assessment. 
Methyl glucoside, a cyclic or “internal” full acetal, is formed from one mole of methanol and one mole of glucose. 
It has been characterized as an unusually stable glucoside that exists in discrete alpha or beta forms.


The methyl glucose polyethers reportedly function as skin and hair conditioning agents, whereas, the methyl glucose esters reportedly function only as skin conditioning agents in cosmetic products.
Ingredients classified as both methyl glucose polyethers and esters based on their chemical structures function as skin conditioning agents, surfactants, and viscosity increasing agents in cosmetic products. 
According to information supplied to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by industry as part of the Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP) in 2013, the following methyl glucose polyethers and esters are being used in cosmetic products:16 methyl glucose dioleate, methyl glucose sesquioleate, methyl glucose sesquistearate, PPG-10 methyl glucose ether, PPG-20 methyl glucose ether, PPG-20 methyl glucose ether distearate, methyl gluceth-10, methyl gluceth-20, PEG-120 methyl glucose dioleate, PEG-20 methyl glucose distearate, PEG-20 methyl glucose sesquistearate, and PEG-120 methyl glucose trioleate. 
Results from surveys of ingredient use concentrations provided by the Personal Care Products Council in 2013 indicate that the polyethers and esters are being used at concentrations up to 15% and 4%, respectively.
The 15% maximum use concentration in rinse-off products relates to methyl gluceth-10 and methyl gluceth-20 in skin cleansing products. 
For leave-on products, the 15% maximum use concentration relates to methyl gluceth-10 in face and neck creams, lotions, and powders (not sprays). 
The survey results provided by the Personal Care Products Council also included a use concentration for the newly reported VCRP use(s) of methyl glucose sesquistearate (1% maximum use concentration), but not PEG-20 methyl glucose sesquistearate, in lipsticks. 
Additionally, a maximum use concentration of 0.05% for PEG-20 methyl glucose distearate in lipsticks was reported in this survey. 
Uses of methyl glucose sesquistearate and PEG-20 methyl glucose sesquistearate, but not PEG-20 methyl glucose distearate, in lipsticks were also reported in FDA’s VCRP. 

Summarized 2013 data on frequency and concentration of use in cosmetics for these ingredients are presented in Table 6. 
Cosmetic products containing methyl glucose polyethers and esters may be applied to the skin and hair, or, incidentally, may come in contact with the eyes and mucous membranes. 
Products containing these ingredients may be applied as frequently as several times per day and may come in contact with the skin or hair for variable periods following application. 
Daily or occasional use may extend over many years. 
The following ingredients are used in products that are sprayed (highest maximum use concentration = 2%): PEG20 methyl glucose sesquistearate (aerosol hair sprays), methyl gluceth-10 (body and hand sprays), and methyl gluceth-20 (pump hair sprays, hair grooming pump sprays, hair preparation spray gel, moisturizing sprays, and indoor tanning aerosol preparations). 
Additionally, the following ingredients may be used in face/body powders (highest maximum use concentration = 15%): methyl glucose dioleate, methyl glucose sesquistearate, PPG-10 methyl glucose ether, PPG -20 methyl glucose ether, methyl gluceth-10, methyl gluceth-20, PEG-120 methyl glucose dioleate, PEG-20 methyl glucose sesquistearate, and PEG-120 methyl glucose trioleate. 
Because these ingredients are used in aerosol/pump hair sprays or powders, they could possibly be inhaled. 
In practice, 95% to 99% of the droplets/particles released from cosmetic sprays have aerodynamic equivalent diameters >10 µm, with propellant sprays yielding a greater fraction of droplets/particles below 10 µm, compared with pump sprays . 
Therefore, most droplets/particles incidentally inhaled from cosmetic sprays would be deposited in the nasopharyngeal and bronchial regions and would not be respirable (i.e., they would not enter the lungs) to any appreciable amount.


Non-Cosmetic
Methyl glucoside-coconut oil ester (methyl glucose sesquicocoate) is listed among the food additives permitted for direct addition to food for human consumption
This methyl glucose ester is used as an aid in crystallization of sucrose and dextrose at a level not to exceed the minimum quantity required to produce its intended effect. 
It is also used as a surfactant in molasses, at a level not to exceed 320 ppm. 
Regarding use as an indirect food additive, methyl glucose sesquicocoate may be safely used as a processing aid (filter aid) in the manufacture of starch, including industrial starch-modified, intended for use as a component of articles that contact food.

mechanism of Action:
PEG-120 methyl glucose dioleate rheology modifier thickens via an associative mechanism. 
The hydrophobic parts of PEG-120 methyl glucose dioleate buildup associations with other hydrophobes present in the formulation. 
Thanks to the nonionic nature, no neutralization is needed, and PEG-120 methyl glucose dioleate will function equivalently in a pH range from 4 to 9.

The hydrophobic groups in PEG-120 methyl glucose dioleate are free to build associations with one another and with other hydrophobes available in the formulation, such as surfactants, particulates, emulsion droplets and dyes. 
This phenomenon creates a network structure that results in a significant viscosity build.
