BTMS-50 Conditioning Emulsifier - Behentrimonium Methosulfate or BTMS is a vegetable based conditioning emulsifier. It can be used to emulsify lotions and scrubs but is more commonly used to make hair conditioners. The recommended usage rate is 1 – 15% though we find that much more than 6% in our hair conditioner recipes is overkill. This emulsifying system contains a large percentage of conditioning agents, making it appropriate for leave-on conditioning treatments as well as traditional rinse off hair care. This product contains no hazardous solvents and comes in an easy-to-work-with white pastille.

Behentrimonium Methosulfate is a quaternary ammonium salt derived from the natural plant oil Colza, or what is commonly known as Rapeseed Oil. It is both a mild primary emulsifier and an effective conditioning agent, which provides elegant cationic emulsions for both skin and hair care products. These emulsions leave hair tangle-free and feeling silky smooth and provide skin with a softer, powdery feel after use in skin products such as lotions and creams. BTMS-50 is also capable of emulsifying silicone, adding to its range in hair care products.

Will not was my hair without this!
I have been ordering my supplies for soaping, skin & hair care from BB every month and never left any reviews on the products, which will change given how much I rely on other reviews when it comes to all my purchases. I'm stumped on making decisions on things that have no or few reviews, New Year, new Goals, more reviews. I love the Btms-50!! I have many skin allergies that cause me to breakout in painfull hives, therefore, I am now committed to making my own soaps, lotions & hair care products. When it comes to my hair, I'm super vigalent when it comes to all natural and no chemicals. I now make my own shampoo & conditioner. I will not wash my hair unless I have Btms-50 on hand to whip up an all vegetable oil, aloe juice hair conditioner filled with herbs & essential oils good for hair strength and growth. I NEED conditioner and can not wash my hair without a conditioner. This is a must have for everyone. Never made hair conditioner? You should give it a try, SQ has a solid recipe.
