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.

Makes the Best Conditioner!
For the past three years I've been using this BTMS 50 in my liquid conditioner that I make me and my sister. It always comes out nice and creamy and is very moisturizing in our hair. since my sister moved away I only make it for myself now and I can say I have no plans to stop anytime soon. So as long as you're selling this BTMS 50 I'll be buying it! :)

Love it!
I have only been making bath products about a year, and depend on BB for it's wonderful products, and love that I can count on them! The BTMS-50 is amazing! I now have 18 products in 5 local stores and growing, and the other day, someone at one of the stores asked if she could feel my hair! The conditioner recipe works every time!!!

THE BEST Conditoner
I use this all the time, and sell a lot of it. It was out of stock, so had to buy some somewhere else. It was not the same. I will never run out again!! It's worth the wait to get it!!

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.
