Behentrimonium chloride

Behentrimonium chloride is a positively charged or cationicquaternary ammonium salt that acts as the hair conditioner and emulsifier in this product. It’s a close cousin of behentrimonium methosulfate, the main ingredient in Incroquat BTMS-50 or Rita BTMS-225, the big difference being the “chloride” part. That’s the counter ion for the molecule, and not really the main attraction. It’s added to make the molecule a good emulsifier with one end that’s hydrophilic or water loving and the tail that’s lipophilic or fat loving.
