Despite its name, Behentrimonium Chloride Methosulfate is a non-sulfate, derived from rapeseed oil. Prized for its effective detangling abilities, it's able to penetrate the hair shaft making it an excellent moisturizer and conditioner, while remaining gentle on the hair and skin, without coating the scalp or causing buildup.
As it contains no stabilizing additives like cetearyl alcohol, so you'll need to add some of your own in order to create stable emulsions with it.
Tip: combine with Brassica Alcohols to keep your formulation palm-free. It is a good replacement for cetyl alcohol. Btms 25 and 50 contain stabilizing additives, so we strongly recommend using Brassica with BTMS 80.
Melting point: 190f 90CBENEFITS:
It is a great alternative when non palm is desired.
Recommended Usage Rate: 1 - 10% for leave on products up to 65% in wash off products
It will take a few experiments to learn how to work with it properly for the purpose I want as combined with the brassica alcohol it is surprisingly gel forming unlike other BTMS On the upside, no funky odour or waxy after feel
