Can oils rich in tannins/flavonoids destroy cationic emulsion?

Hi all, I have encountered a strange phenomena recently, while formulating a hair conditioner, which contains grape seed oil among other things( I am using BTMS 80 as an emulsifier). I was able to get a stable emulsion when using a refined grape seed oil , but when I changed it to the unrefined version, I could not get a stable emulsion any more! Is it possible that tannins, flavonoids in the unrefined grape seed oil interfere with emulsification process?

  • According to the HLD model, the presence of electrolytes, salts, etc alters the required emulsifier values quite markedly. I posted a PDF link to the book about this a little while ago. It's not bed time reading but it is very useful and interesting. I can't really comment further because I have no experience with that emulsifier. So the answer to your question, is yes.
