Decyl rhamnoside surfactants are suitable for use in cosmetics, including in anti-aging creams, soaps, and other skin or facial treatments. Furthermore, these materials may have anti-bacterial, anti-zoosporic, and anti-fungal properties. Agriculture uses are known, as well as bioremediation, and enhanced oil recovery projects. Decyl rhamnoside (like many of its natural rhamnose-based derivatives) is a good foaming and wetting agent, with the ability to increase the aqueous solubility of hydrophobic compounds, making them excellent solubilizing and emulsifying agents for diverse applications.
