    Abstract

    Alkyl glucosides (AG), of which decyl glucoside (DG) and lauryl glucoside (LG) are those most commonly implicated in causing allergic contact dermatitis (ACD), are surfactants increasingly used in a wide range of products, including cosmetics, sunscreens and foam wound dressings.1 DG is also a stabiliser in the UV light filter methylene bis-benzotriazolyl tetramethylbutylphenol (Tinosorb® M) and is occasionally an undeclared constituent.2.
