Glucodet™ G42 is a preservative free, nonionic solution of alkyl polyglucosides. It can be used as the primary surfactant or used with other surfactants to improve foam, solubilization or stability in a wide variety of caustic, neutral or acidic formulations. It is self-preserved due to a high pH level which causes a hazy appearance. This haziness will disappear once neutralized. If the final formulation has a neutral pH it should be preserved in a suitable way. Glucodet™ G42 is made from renewable raw materials and is readily biodegradable. It is very mild and low in toxicity.
