This organic cationic surfactant is derived from the ever so beautiful rapeseed plant whose oil is synthetically modified to produce this ingredient. The waxy, pearl white pellets of this substance are generally available in two forms- BTMS 25 and BTMS 50, the difference being that the latter contains more conditioning agents and less fatty alcohols than the former and hence is considered superior in terms of conditioning. We stock the better variant, BTMS 50

 

INCL name: Behentrimonium Methosulphate

BENEFITS AND USES-

  • This ingredient acts as an emulsifier and a conditioner. It provides remarkable slip and acts as a detangler in hair care products like conditioners, hair masks, leave-in-creams, and oil replacement creams.
  • Its benefits extend to making the hair products creamier and giving a luxurious feel to the hair.
  • It conspicuously increases the volume and strength of the hair.
  • When used in lotions and moisturizers it absorbs into the skin making it cottony soft.
  • Its proclivity to be gentle on the skin and hair allows for its use in baby care products.

 HOW IT WORKS-

  • It is cationic, meaning thereby, that it is positively charged. These positive charges bind with the negatively charged outer layer of the skin and the hair making them visibly smooth.
  • It helps in emulsifying water and oil in a formulation, which makes it thicker, creamier and in turn enhances its spreadability.

CONCENTRATION AND SOLUBILITY-

  • It is soluble in oil and ethanol and is insoluble in water.
  • The recommended concentration for use is 1%-15%.

HOW TO USE-

  • Melt in a heated oil phase
  • Keep stirring at a constant temperature with moderate agitation.
  • Mix until it completely dissolves.
