Problems dissolving Cetrimide BP
Anyone here have experience working with cetrimide?
We recently got a new supplier for this raw material to use in our lotions and conditioner and our product champion QC’ed it before sending it to production, but he dissolved it in water. In the majority of our products it is dissolved in oils and butters so I am wondering if we should be looking into another supplier or if things need to be reformulated.
The times I have had to make a product with it I have had to heat it much higher to break it down which isn’t really ideal with the rest of the raw materials. We have talked about sifting it and scrapping the larger/harder pieces, but that creates an inventory variance that affects the room’s production bonus.
