Palm-Free BTMS (Behentrimonium Methosulfate) is a strong conditioning agent and emulsifier. Palm-Free BTMS contains no Cetyl Alcohol or other fatty alcohols, which routinely derived from Palm Oil. BTMS is derived from vegetable oils such as canola/rapeseed, coconut or sunflower. Typical use rates are 1/3 – 1/4 the amount that you would normally use BTMS-25 at, so this products is extremely cost effective. Use level is 0.5- 5% depending on the type of product being made and function; lower levels are used if BTMS is being used as an emulsifier (0.5 – 4%) and higher levels for conditioning (1 – 5%).
