    Hola' @Quimico, formula no servir hoy?
    DELETE the stearic acid, it is incompatible with cationic alkyl quaternary. Also, add some mineral oil or other aceite to emulsify here or this will be only a rinse. The CETAC alone should work, but if not add small amount of Ceteareth-20 and you'll be OK. Sodium chloride (sal) will thicken that system too, which many formulators aren't aware.
