is a pastillated 50% active Behenyl
(C22) quaternary conditioning agent and cationic emulsifier based on patented
chemistry that enables the product to be supplied volatile-free and at the
highest possible activity. BTMS 50 is supplied in a fatty alcohol/glycol
solvent, making it safer and more environmentally friendly than other analogs
that are traditionally supplied in Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA). As such, the product
contains no volatile solvents, is non-hazardous and easier to handle. With the
highest possible activity as a pastille, BTMS-50 has a lower fatty alcohol
content that can be adjusted to suit, giving formulators the flexibility to create
products that are custom-designed to target specific types of conditioning
As a C22
methosulfate quat, BTMS-50 is a tremendously effective detangler for hair, yet
is safe and gentle enough for leave-on skin care. It produces elegant cationic
emulsions that are exceptionally mild and substantive to hair and skin. These
emulsions leave hair tangle-free and feeling silky smooth and provide skin with
a soft, powdery, and persistent after-feel.
is a quaternary ammonium salt derived from the natural plant oil Colza, more
commonly known as Rapeseed Oil, and is available in the methosulfate form of
quat supplied in Cetyl Alcohol/Butylene Glycol. (See structure below.) The
advantages that BTMS-50 offers in terms of lower irritation, more conditioning,
better thickening, enhanced skin feel and improved stick structure, are a
direct result of this composition.
As a primary
emulsifier and conditioning agent, BTMS-50 has a wide range of applications in
hair care and skin care. Because of its exceptionally mild properties, it is an
ideal choice for leave-on conditioners and leave-on skin care. It provides
softening and emollient effects and gives body and thickness to emulsion

elegant cationic emulsions, allowing formulators to produce skin creams and
lotions create a unique initial sensory, leaving a soft, powdery after-feel
that resists rinse-off.
Hair Care Benefits
Due to the long chain of BTMS-50, the product
is more hydrophobic in nature than conventional quaternaries. This results in
better deposition of both quat and lipid on the hair surface. This hydrophobic
driven adsorption can be enhanced by increasing the ratio of fatty alcohol to
quat in the actual formula. The hydrophobicity and deposition behavior of BTMS-50
gives the product excellent wet combing properties, yet allows it to condition
without the build-up associated with many polymeric quats. The bar chart below
depicts the results of salon trials comparing the conditioning effects of
behenyl quats to those of Stearalkonium Chloride.
BTMS-50 is recommended for detanglers, cream rinses, and all types of
conditioners. Besides wet combing, the product also gives hair excellent body
and spring and reduces flyaway. BTMS-50 is also effective as a conditioner for
ethnic hair care, especially in relaxer systems where it provides a soft feel
and improved sheen.
