Cetearyl glucoside and Cetearyl alcohol

Cetearyl glucoside and Cetearyl alcohol (GM68, APG1618) is a mixture of about 25% alkyl glycosides, which is formed by dehydration of fatty alcohols of plant origin and glucose of plant origin.

GM68 is an O/W emulsifier with self-emulsifying and self-thickening effect. Its lipophilic fatty groups and hydrophilic glucose groups are plant origin, without solvents and irritating by-products.

Scope of application

Various O/W emulsification systems, especially suitable for high-grade functional emulsification products, such as moisturizing anti-aging products, sunscreen products, baby products and so on.

Usage and dosage

Usage: Add oil phase, heating to 75-85℃ melting, emulsification after high speed homogenization to obtain a fine and uniform paste.

Recommended dosage: 0.5-5%.


During the cooling process after emulsification, the liquid crystal of the system is gradually formed, and strong agitation should be avoided to avoid destroying the orderly structure of the liquid crystal.

Packing and storage

25kg per bag. Store in a cool and dry place. Shelf life: 2 years.
