Behentrimonium Chloride

Behentrimonium Chloride is a cleaning/conditioning agent (known in technical terms as a “cationic quaternary ammonium compound”) made from colza oil obtained from the seeds of Brassica rapa, var. oleifera (oilseed turnip).


What it does:

Conditions, detangles, fights static, softens, and helps strenghten hair . Since it’s plant-based and not petrochemical-based, it doesn’t coat but penetrates the hair shaft for potent conditioning effects. In some applications, it also acts as a preservative.

Why we use it:

Behentrimonium Chloride is a potent conditioner with antistatic and detangling properties, able to restore & rebuild damaged hair (due to colza oil it does not coat but penetrates & substantiates the hair shaft), especially effective for softening coarse hair, with antimicrobial properties.
