    Add some anionic surfactant and reduce glucoside. 

    Coco is better

    @Cosmetic_Chemist Mixing non ionics (like glucosides) with CAPB doesn’t show the synergy you get when you mix an anionic surfactant with CAPB (especially SLES or SLS). Also, if your liquid soap has some cationic polymer, combining a glucoside with CAPB might not favor coacervation.

    Now, when comparing Decyl glucoside with Coco glucoside, Decyl tends to be more degreasing, which could leave a squeaky feel on the skin.

    @Cosmetic_Chemist I guess your formulation can work just the amount of active surfactants should be adequate, but there is no need for liquid hand soap to use glucoside I guess using SLES will be more economic and effective.
