Decyl glucoside is a mild non-ionic surfactant used in cosmetic formularies including baby shampoo and in products for individuals with a sensitive skin. Many natural personal care companies use this cleanser because it is plant-derived, biodegradable, and gentle for all hair types.
In 2017, the American Contact Dermatitis society named alkyl glucosides, a class of compounds including decyl, lauryl, cetearyl, and coco glucosides, the Allergen of the Year, with decyl glucoside named as "the most common one in the class of alkyl glucosides to cause allergic contact dermatitis."
