Cetrimonium chloride is a type of quaternary ammonium salt that is commonly used in hair care products as a conditioning agent.
It is also known as cetyltrimethylammonium chloride or CTAC.
In hair care products, cetrimonium chloride helps to detangle hair, reduce frizz, and improve hair manageability.
It is particularly useful for people with curly or coarse hair, as it can help to define curls and make hair smoother and shinier.
Cetrimonium chloride is also used in some skin care products, such as moisturizers and lotions, as it can help to improve skin texture and appearance.
However, it should be used in moderation, as it can be irritating to the skin in high concentrations.
It is important to note that cetrimonium chloride is a cationic surfactant, which means that it can react with anionic surfactants in some formulations, such as shampoos and body washes, leading to a loss of product effectiveness.
Therefore, it is important to carefully formulate products that contain cetrimonium chloride to ensure optimal performance.
