Coco-Caprylate & Coco-Glucoside

Coco-Caprylate & Coco-Glucoside

Coco-Caprylate, as the name might suggests, is a coconut-derived hydrating emollient that helps to soften and smooth skin, while preventing moisture loss.

Coco-Caprylate also helps to ensure the cream is not weighed down by the intense plant oils by ensuring a light-weight, but luxurious, feel without the need to reduce the amount of skin healing oils or increase the water content.


Coco-Glucoside is a wonderful natural alternative to Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) that is coconut-derived. It shares many of the properties of raw coconut oil while encouraging water and oil to combine and form a stable emulsion – essential in water-based moisturisers.

Unlike SLS, Coco-glucosides do not dry skin out after application, instead ensuring water-based formulations are non-greasy and have that silky feel, without the need to reduce natural actives and increase water content.
