Is there any "Green" Solubalizing Agent

I am making a hair moisturizing spray  to refresh curls on day 2 and to
re-hydrate dry curly hair. I need a solubalizer to solubalize 1% jojoba oil 1% rice bran oil and .6 % essential oil (grapefruit and ylang ylang). 

I am trying to stick with the eco-friendly, Green formulation base, as a result, polysorbate 20/80 or PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil is not an option. 

Does anyone have any suggestion of what I can use. 

thank in Advance.

    Here is an interesting presentation by a forum member. I remember Polysugamulse D9 had great members reviews.

    You can google for ecocert/cosmos approved materials like this, or ask your suppliers what they have to offer. Keep in mind it will be reflected on the price.

    Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside; Aqua; Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate; Glyceryl Caprylate; Citric Acid; Polyglyceryl-6 Oleate; Sodium Surfactin

    I personally find Poly Suga Mulse D9 to be a superior product

  • Thank you all for the feedback. 
  • You can get Cocoyl Proline, or  Caprylyl/ Capryl glucoside easily if it’s just for yourself but the latter is the least expensive.
