BTMS-50 Conditioning Emulsifier
BTMS-50, or Behentrimonium Methosulfate is a vegetable based conditioning emulsifier. It can be used to emulsify lotions and scrubs but is more commonly used to make hair conditioners.
Behentrimonium Methosulfate is a quaternary ammonium salt derived from the natural plant oil Colza, or what is commonly known as Rapeseed Oil. It offers excellent detangling and conditions without the build-up often seen with other conditioning quaternary conditioning agents. BTMS-50 is capable of emulsifying high levels of silicone, and is also a fantastic emulsifier for use in skin care products.
INCI: Behentrimonium methosulfate (and) Cetyl Alcohol (and) Butylene Glycol
Usage Rates: 1 - 10%
What's the difference between the three BTMS products?
BTMS-25 and BTMS Plus both contain Cetearyl Alcohol and Behentrimonium Methosulfate. However, BTMS Plus contains 50% BTMS (Behentrimonium Methosulfate) and BTMS-25 contains 25%. You will find BTMS Plus is slightly more conditioning than BTMS-25.
BTMS-50 also contains 50% Behentrimonium Methosulfate. It does not have Cetearyl Alcohol and instead has Cetyl Alcohol and Behenyl Alcohol. BTMS-50 is a premium conditioning emulsifier, yielding top quality products with outstanding detangling and wet comb properties.
