(Often seen in recipes as BTMS-25.)

Derived from rapeseed oil and palm oil (RSPO mass balance certified)*, these pellets make a luxurious hair conditioner (the best we've ever come across) and hair detangler, great for leave-in conditioners and water resistant lotions.

This is a unique emulsifier in that it carries a cationic (positive) charge, while most other emulsifiers are non-ionic (neutral). This means that the positively charge is attracted to the negatively charged hair strands (or neutral skin), and will absorb and cling to the surface, resisting being easily rinsed off, which gives the feel of long lasting hydration and conditioning, resulting in hair feeling silky and smooth.

Gentle and effective, it helps boost lubricity and static control, helps reduce friction and pull during wet comb-outs and brushing and helps hair retain a springy bounce and volume. 

It is also very effective for use in skin and body care products, especially when a light, powdery soft, non-greasy feel and finish is desired.
