LibraCare  APGs – Naturally Derived Non-Ionic Surfactants

About Libracare Alkyl Polyglucosides (APGs)

The Libracare APG series are a range of non-ionic surfactants derived from 100% renewable raw materials, like fatty alcohols from coconut and palm kernel oils, and glucose from corn. These products are very mild, low in toxicity and readily biodegradable. The synergistic effects of LibraCare APG series combined with other commonly used surfactants yield a performance improvement that can be the basis for a reduction of surfactant content, whilst maintaining performance level.

Our Libracare APG range features excellent wetting and dispersing properties as well as being able to produce a rich and stable foam. Our products are compatible with all other types of surfactants which often results in synergistic effects including an improvement in the mildness of formulations; they are also stable and soluble in highly caustic systems.
