Instructions for using BTMS 225 in Hand Made Products

_jeesperse

BTMS-225 is a vegetable derived emulsifier and conditioning agent which is used in hair conditioners and hair leave-in-products for its excellent wet combing, and detangling properties. BTMS-225 is able to emulsify high levels of silicones, such as Dimethicone and Cyclomethicone, increasing the detangling properties and silky feel to products when used. It is also a great emulsifier for skin care products such as creams and lotions as it helps to soften the skin, leaving a soft non-greasy feel. It can be used in a wide variety of applications including creams, deep conditioning hair relaxers, hair conditioners and detanglers.
Typically the recommended use is 1-5% in conditioner type formulas. Because there is cetearyl alcohol in the product it will build viscosity the more you use. The quat will also increase the conditioning in the formula.
