    I hope this email finds you well. Greetings from Brazil! Help me clarify some doubts and perhaps share some experiences regarding cationic ingredients. I’ve been working on formulating a rinse-off hair treatment for the past few days, aiming to avoid using BTAC or BTMS due to environmental concerns. Instead, I’m focusing on using stearamidopropyl dimethylamine and Behenamidopropyl Dimethylamine. However, I’ve noticed that the conditioning results are not as substantial or significantly effective when compared to combining these with BTAC, for example.

    My primary goal is to find more environmentally friendly alternatives, although that’s not the main focus of my inquiry today. I’m wondering if there are any other cationic ingredients that could match the performance of traditional quats and polyquats, such as the solutions offered by INOlex (Brassicyl Valinate Esylate, Brassicyl Isoleucinate Esylate) or Greengredients’ GREENQUAT® BT. I’ve heard that Brassicyl Valinate Esylate can leave a chalky residue on the hair, based on reports from some formulators.

    This brings me to the question: What makes BTAC so unbeatable in its performance? I truly appreciate your time and willingness to share your extensive knowledge.

    Thank you in advance for your insights.

    Best regards,

    Jr. Pava
