CIR專家小組審查了一項研究，該研究表明，Caprylyl / Capryl 葡萄糖苷(烷基鍊長度：長度為8和10個碳的混合物)不易被皮膚吸收。在高濃度下，Caprylyl / Capryl Glucoside具有刺激性，長期皮膚刺激導致其他不良反應，包括體重減輕。在不引起皮膚刺激的濃度下沒有觀察到其他不良反應。月桂基葡萄糖苷不是生殖或發育毒物。尚未發現烷基葡糖苷成分具有遺傳毒性。含有烷基葡糖苷成分的產品的臨床試驗發現，產品不是皮膚刺激物或敏化劑。
The CIR Expert Panel reviewed a study that indicated that Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside (alkyl chain length: a mixture of 8 and 10 carbons in length) was not readily absorbed through the skin. At high concentrations Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside was irritating and long-term skin irritation resulted in other adverse effects including body weight loss. No other adverse effects were observed at concentrations that did not cause skin irritation. Lauryl Glucoside was not a reproductive or developmental toxicant. Alkyl glucoside ingredients have not been found to be genotoxic. Clinical tests of products containing alkyl glucoside ingredients have found that the products were not dermal irritants or sensitizers.
