What type of non-ionic surfactant stabilizes a conditioner with cationic surfactant and how?
Suppose we have a conditioner with1% cationic surfactant (BTAC, BTMS or SPDMA)
2% fatty alcohol
It is advised that adding a non-ionic surfactant makes this more stable.
1. what is the mechanism and how does a non-ionic surfactant stabilizes this conditioner?
2. What type of non-ionic surfactant stabilizes this?
3. Does adding glyceryl stearate, glyceryl oleate, decyl or lauryl glucoside or cocamiCocamidopropyl betaine stabilizes it?
4. Can increasing the amount of fatty alcohol alone stabilize it?
