SugaCitrate L1C –

Suga®Citrate L1C represents Colonial Chemical Inc’s cutting-edge advancement in alkyl polyglucoside (APG) derivatization technology. This innovative APG-Citrate formula utilizes entirely renewable resources while preserving the commendable attributes of its predecessors, Suga®Nate and Poly Suga®Nate, including low skin and eye irritation and a favorable ecological toxicity profile. By transforming nonionic Lauryl Glucoside into an anionic surfactant, this technology broadens the scope and efficacy of APGs. It notably augments viscosity when used alongside traditional secondary surfactants. Furthermore, when combined with traditional anionic surfactants, Suga®Citrate L1C has been proven to reduce the potential for skin irritation in formulations, particularly in conjunction with amphoterics. This enables the creation of exceptionally gentle cleansing products that deliver the desired foam and viscosity for consumers. Formulators no longer need to compromise between high foam, gentleness, and consumer-friendly ingredient labels; all of these aspects can be achieved with the versatile Suga®Citrate L1C.

Suga®Citrate is available for use in numerous regions across the globe, encompassing North America, Europe/UK (REACH registration), ANZ (notified introduction), and the majority of Asian markets. Should you require a COSMOS-compliant variant, please don’t hesitate to inquire. This product has earned a 100% biobased certification from the USDA BioPreferred program and boasts excellent biodegradability with minimal environmental impact.
