Cetac 30% - Cetrimonium Chloride
CAS: 112-02-7

CETAC 30% - Cetrimonium Chloride is a cationic quaternary ammonium salt that is used as a light hair conditioning agent. Its use in conditioners and cream rinses improves both wet and dry combing and reduces static electricity.  As it is cationic, it is used primarily in conditioning products rather than in shampoos.

This product is a 29 - 30% active solution of cetyl trimethyl ammonium chloride.

It also finds use as a topical antiseptic and a preservative due to its ability to inhibit the growth of microorganisms.  It is used as a surfactant (for cleansing and emulsifying) and a suspending agent.

While we've seen this product formulated at 2% in leave on hair products, the Cosmetic Ingredient Review indicates it is Safe as Used with Qualifications, that being its use at up to 0.25% in leave on products.  This is due to the potential for it to be a skin irritant at higher amounts.

Recommended Usage Rates: 

  • Rinse off products: 0.25 - 10%
  • Leave on products: 0.25%

Appearance: Colorless to pale yellow, transparent liquid
pH (5% Solution): 3.0 - 4.0%

Our Customers Say...
Jen/Lotioncrafter continues to meet and exceed my expectations. I will be a customer for life! Not only do they provide consistently high quality and hard to find products they always deliver excellent service and ship quickly. They truly excel at what they do and I have never been disappointed.
cynthia, (esencia de san miguel)

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
So fast and brilliant service!
I'm your fan!

First time ordered on 10th October, 2011 and am just loving the information sent on tracking my order from USA to Australia.. well done
Colleen Hagarty, (Jordella)

My biggest dilemma is that I live in Hawaii and finding reputable and affordable suppliers is near impossible, and once you locate one the shipping is out of this world ($50+ for shipping alone normally); when I found your website I was hopeful. Not only did you have the refined Shea Butter I was looking for, but you had everything else too! And the shipping was VERY affordable. I received my order 1 day sooner than I expected it (and shipping to Hawaii normally takes longer than shipping 'locally' within the continental US). I couldn't be more pleased with everything that you have to offer. I will definitely be ordering again, you have a customer for life!

I've ordered from Lotioncrafters twice and I have to say, I am impressed at how fast they get your product out to you. As long as they continue to give this type of service, I will continue to be a loyal customer.

Thanks a bunch LC!!!
