What's That Ingredient? Cetrimonium Chloride

What is Cetrimonium Chloride?
Cetrimonium Chloride is also known as  Cetyl trimethyl-ammonium chloride.  It is a quaternized ammonium molecule.

What does it do for our hair?
This ingredient acts as cationic surfactants, which can be used as emulsifying or conditioning agents.
Its conditioning properties helps to smoothen our hair cuticle and minimize flyaways because it stop the build up of static electricity in hair. This ingredient can also act as a detangler for the hair.

Here is a list of some of the products I currently use that contain it:
  • Eden BodyWorks All Natural Deep Conditioner
  • Eden BodyWorks Cleansing CoWash 
  •  Eden BodyWorks All Natural Curl Defining Crème
  •  SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Edge Treatment
  • SheaMoisture SuperFruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque
  • Alberto V05 Herbal Escapes Strengthening Conditioner
