  DECYL POLYGLUCOSE
pH 11.5

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 petroleum. 

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.

NOTE:

July 2007:

Decyl Polyglucose is now manufactured at a higher alkaline pH value of 11.5. 

It can be used in exactly the same manner as has been typical in the past where water, glycerin, vegetable oils, essential 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 Vinegar. 

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. 

This soap agent should always be diluted and should never be applied to the skin directly. Wash skin after handling undiluted product. 

Use no more than 30% in a body care preparation and no more than 50% in a household cleaning product. Avoid contact with eyes. If significant eye contact occurs, flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Do not rub eyes. Get medical attention immediately. In case of accidental ingestion, this is not considered toxic but may be harmful if swallowed in large quantities. If large ingestion occurs, call a physician or poison control center immediately. 

Spilled product may be slippery. Clean up with water or add dry material first to absorb and then use water.
