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.

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

Our Customers Say...
My favourite place for just about everything! Super speedy, perfect packing, what more can you ask for?

I placed my order on Monday, July 12th and received the order on Wednesday, July 14th. I was really pleased with the quick arrival, the care that each item was packed with and the very nice and useful items Jenny sent with my order as a thank you.

So many thanks for your efficiency, kindness, and great products,

Just wanted to say that my package arrived SO QUICKLY and I received an email confirmation once my order was received and once it was shipped. It was shipped the same day, by the way. I will recommend this company and I very impressed with the customer service.

These guys work in timely manner for sure. After I placed my order on Internet they called me in about 15 min because they had some questing about my address. They also made sure that the method of shipment would meet my needs. The little dish that I got was chipped - they sent me the replacement in no time. I haven't yet made any lotions from the ingredients I've got. I will and I'll tell you my opinion soon! Olga

Hands down the best tube company I have found. SO grateful for your fast shipping and fantastic customer service. All of my orders have shipped same day, and that is VERY very exciting and very much appreciated. You guys work hard and it shows!
rachel, (Orange Thyme)
