BTMS-25 Conditioning Emulsifier
BTMS-25, is a natural conditioning emulsifier derived from Colza oil. It can be used to emulsify lotions and scrubs but is more commonly used to make hair conditioners. The recommended usage rate is 1 – 10%.
BTMS-25 will give creams and lotions a powdery, soft feel, and can be used to emulsify high levels of silicones.
BTMS-25 can be substituted for BTMS-50 in conditioners although you may find it slightly less conditioning as it has 25% actives versus 50% actives in the BTMS-50.

Recommended usage rate: 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.
