LibraCare APG Series: Alkyl Polyglucosides

The Libracare APG series is a range of non-ionic surfactants primarily derived from renewable raw materials such as fatty alcohols from coconut and palm kernel oils and glucose from corn. These products are exceptionally mild, low in toxicity and, like the majority of our products here at Libra, they are readily biodegradable. The synergistic effects of our LibraCare APG series combined with other commonly used surfactants yields a performance improvement that can be the basis for a reduction of surfactant content, whilst maintaining performance level.

Our Libracare APG range has excellent wetting and dispersing properties and has the ability to produce a rich and stable foam. Our products are compatible with other surfactant types, which frequently result in synergistic effects, including an improvement in the mildness of formulations. The LibraCare APG products are highly soluble and stable in high pH finished product formulations.

Applications of LibraCare APG Products

Our LibraCare APG range is compatible with other surfactants, they are low in toxicity, have low skin irritation and are readily biodegradable. Because of this, they are especially useful as components in products that need stable foam, low streaking, and no filmy residue. Our LibraCare APG products function exceptionally well in the following application areas:

  • Personal care (shampoo, body wash, creams & lotions).
  • HI&I cleaning (household, hard surface, all-purpose, machine dishwashing).
  • Agrochemicals (soil wetting agent, systemic adjuvants).
  • Textiles (sourcing agents).
