Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetyl Alcohol (and) Butylene Glycol) so you typically wouldn't use more cetyl alcohol with it, at least that's what I've been told. That said, I have seen some products with btms-50 and stearic acid and cetearyl alcohol all in the ingredients listing.
Hope that helps!
what is the reason not to use cetyl alcohol with btms? it doesn’t have enough to assure good viscosity. stearic acid is draggy. can it be used? yes, but the product won’t be aesthetically pleasing
Use cetyl alcohol as a builder along with GMS (not SE). Stearic acid in a cationic system? Fuggeddaboddit.
