This product's vegetable-derived humectancy, in combination with its skin nurturing emolliency, makes Glucam™ E-20 humectant ideal for use in moisturizing systems which require a light, satin-like feel.

In moisturizing lotions and creams, at the skin-product interface, Glucam E-20 humectant is ideal because of its ability to retard excess water loss. Additionally, in the manufacturing and delivery of soap systems, Glucam E-20 humectant prevents soap bars from cracking and aids in the smoothing of soap bar extrusion. Glucam E-20 humectant has low irritation potential and it is ideal for use in products for sensitive skin.
