Plantapon LGC Sorb is an anionic surfactant that combines the characteristic mildness of APG® with excellent foaming and sensory properties, making it especially suitable for use in mild rinse-off applications and toothpaste. This product retains the mildness of the nonionic Lauryl Glucoside while improving its foam and sensory profile. Applications of Plantapon® LGC Sorb include body wash, face wash, liquid hand soap, shampoo, baby care, sensitive skincare, and wipes. When incorporated into shampoos, this surfactant contributes to hair softness and improves dry combing properties.
