Unique soap agent that is gentle
on your skin and good for the environment.
Cheryl's Herbs is
extremely proud to offer an alternative that is much more gentle on your skin
and truthfully produced from renewable vegetation!
This soap agent, Decyl Polyglucose,
is manufactured from plentiful, renewable vegetation (corn, coconut & palm
kernel oils) and is earth friendly.
It can also be described as being
made from corn, glucose & starch. Corn supplies the carbohydrates which are
converted with fatty alcohols from native oils, such as coconut or palm kernel
oil, into alkyl polyglycosides.
Many manufacturers still use Sodium
Laureth Sulfate for body care and household products. For decades manufacturers
have been allowed to label Sodium Laureth Sulfate as being derived from coconut
oil. This is simply not true in today's world as it is now made from
This soap agent should always be
diluted and should never be applied to the skin directly. Use no more than 30%
in a body care preparation and no more than 50% in a household cleaning product.
Avoid contact with eyes. In case of accidental ingestion, this is not considered
toxic but may be harmful if swallowed in large quantities. Do not add acids like
vinegar or citric acid directly. Mix them in after other ingredients have been
combined first. See attachment for more safety information.

oils, hydrosols, and various other liquids are added.
Only if herb tea is added it may be
required to adjust the pH. Vinegar or Citric Acid could be used.
To achieve a pH value similar to the
former Decyl Polyglucose follow these guidelines. In a recipe containing 16 oz
Decyl Polyglucose use 1 teaspoon Citric Acid or use 4 oz raw Apple Cider
DO NOT ADD CITRIC ACID OR VINEGAR
DIRECTLY INTO DECYL POLYGLUCOSE. Add these pH adjusters near the end of your
mixing process. Acidification could release carbon dioxide and generate foam
resulting in an increase in volume or pressure.
