Parchem – fine & specialty chemicals is a proactive resourcing specialist company offering a wide range of raw materials for use in the cosmetics and personal care industries. Notable among our extensive catalog of safe and effective surfactants and emulsifiers is cetearyl glucoside.

Cetearyl glucoside [ CAS 246159-33-1 ], or D-Glucopyranose, is developing a name as a highly efficient oil/water emulsifier in over 100 products on the market to-date, from face and body moisturizers, to sunscreens, shaving creams, and hair conditioners. A white to ivory powder derived from palm oil and corn, and formed through etherification of cetearyl alcohol with glucose, cetearyl glucoside is known to help retain moisture in skin and hair, resulting in a soft feel. 

Manufacturers of this material note its cosmetic properties include excellent spreadability and a velvety touch. Cetearyl glucoside is considered safe for use as a surfactant/emulsifier in cosmetic and personal care products by the Environmental Working Group and the EU Cosmetics Regulation, following manufacturer’s recommended usage concentration for lotion, spray, or cream. 

Typical packaging for this material is 180-360 kg pallets (12-24 x15 kg bags.) Parchem’s nationally distributed warehouses are equipped to handle and store safely any size shipment needed. Our expert logistics team will track your order from the time the product leaves the plant until it is delivered to your facility. We offer Saturday deliveries, next day trucking, and just-in-time delivery.
