Behentrimonium methosulfate

Behentrimonium methosulfate is derived from rapeseed oil.



  • Used in conditioners, shampoos, and lotions to impart a slippery feel to the product.


  • A very mild yet effective ingredient known for its de-tangling and hair thickening properties. Because this ingredient directly deposits onto the hair follicle to smooth out the cuticles, it’s highly regarded for its conditioning abilities.
  • It can be found in many hair products like conditioner, detangler, shampoo and styling gel.
  • It also acts as an emulsifying agent, gentle enough to be used in baby products that are left on the skin.
  • When used in lotions and creams, it gives a soft and powdery after-touch to the skin.


  • The EWG Cosmetic Database tates behentrimonium methosulfate as a low hazard ingredient
