Poly SugaGlycinate
Naturally-derived Poly APG Amphoterics


C: Sodium Bis-Hydroxyethylglycinate Coco-Glucosides Crosspolymer L: Sodium Bis-Hydroxyethylglycinate Lauryl-Glucosides Crosspolymer CAS NUMBER C: 1268701-17-2 L: 1268157-76-1 LISTINGS REACH Registered (EU), TSCA (USA), NDSL (Canada) Poly SugaGlycinate high quality amphoterics are composed of alkylpolyglucosides derived from coconut oil and corn syrup. Poly SugaGlycinates consist of renewable vegetable resources that are fully biodegradable and very safe for personal care cleansing and foaming products. Poly SugaGlycinate is an extremely mild surfactant with no eye and skin irritation and may be used to reduce the irritation of other surfactants in personal care formulations. It is odorless and will not add color to formulations. The resulting foam is dense with great stability when used in combination with other surfactants. Including the benefit of mildness, it is an excellent choice for shaving creams, mousses and other dense foam formulations. In shampoo formulations, Poly SugaGlycinate produces conditioning and imparts softness to the hair. When tested with cationic polymers, a combination of Poly SugaGlycinate with a cationic polymer produces better conditioning as compared to the same used individually. Use in hair care can be at any pH range and is very substantial to both hair and skin. BENEFITS Made from naturally-derived ingredients EO-free, 1,4-Dioxane-free, PEG-free MEA-free, DEA-free, Sulfate-free Non-irritating No amido propyl group Excellent formulation label copy Exceptional mildness for an amphoteric Surface active properties over broad pH range Acid and alkaline formulations Excellent after-feel on skin

EYE IRRITATION Poly SugaGlycinate is much less irritating than cocoamidopropyl betaine, scoring a non-irritating 1.75 in the eye irritation test vs. the cocoamidopropyl betaine score of 18.5, which is very irritating. These tests were run at 4% active surfactant. SUGGESTED USE Viscosity of formulations can be significantly increased by combining Poly SugaGlycinate with anionic surfactants. It is suggested that ratios of 1:1 Poly SugaGlycinate to anionic be used at 20% - 30% active concentrations in formulations to achieve maximum foam and viscosity.
