BTMS-50 Flakes are 50% active Behenyl combined with cetyl Alcohol & Butylene Glycol. This combination makes a superior quaternary conditioning agent and cationic emulsifier Quaternary conditioners, also known as quats, are special cationic surfactants (quaternary ammonium compounds) carrying positive electrical charges. Quats have long been a favorite hair care ingredient for consumers and formulators alike. These molecules come in many forms and are used in shampoos, conditioners, and treatments for conditioning hair, providing repair benefits, and preventing frizz and static build-up.
BTMS-50 is a remarkably effective detangler for hair, yet is safe and gentle enough for leave-on skin care. It produces luxurious cationic emulsions that are incredibly mild when used on hair and skin. These emulsions leave hair tangle-free and feel silky smooth and provide skin with a soft, powdery, and successive after-feel. As a primary emulsifier and conditioning agent, BTMS-50 has a wide range of applications in hair care and skin care. Because of its exceptionally mild properties, it is an ideal choice for leave-on conditioners and leave-on skin care. It provides softening and emollient effects and gives body and thickness to emulsion systems. The advantages that BTMS-50 offers in terms of lower irritation, more conditioning, better thickening, enhanced skin feel, and improved stick structure, are a direct result of this composition.
BTMS-50 forms luxurious cationic emulsions, allowing formulators to produce skin creams and lotions to create a unique skin feel that makes this one of the most sought-after emulsifiers. Because of its Positive charge, it helps with static-related issues like flyaways and frizz. The hydrophobicity and deposition behavior of BTMS-50 gives the product excellent wet combing properties, yet allows it to condition without the build-up associated with some emulsifiers. BTMS-50 is recommended for detanglers, cream rinses, and all types of conditioners. Besides wet combing, the product also gives hair an excellent body and spring and reduces flyaway. BTMS-50 is also an effective conditioner for ethnic hair care, especially in relaxer systems where it provides a soft feel and improved sheen.
