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%
Solubility: Water soluble

INCI: Cetrimonium Chloride

Lotioncrafter is my favorite company. Their shipping is fast and customer service is top notch. I recommend Lotioncrafter to any and all my friends.
Irena, (Gingers Garden)

I just started buying from LotionCrafter's, I am so elated that I found them. They have excellent quality products at very reasonable costs and able to buy in small quantities if needed without a minimum. Most of all is the wealth of information that they have with each product. I have been looking for a supplier like this for years. Glad to have found you.

Kathleen, (Green Woman Herbs)

Lotioncrafter has gotten another customer for life. Their packaging is amazing and the shipping is exceptional. I ordered using USPS first class to Ottawa,ON. It got to me in 7 days (5 business days). That's what I call class!!!

Just wanted to thank you for the excellent service, packages where shipped very quickly and packed well. The service and refund on excess shipping convinced me that Lotioncrafter cares about its customers.

Xanthan gum soft is just simply amazing for skin care, no slimy feel even at high concentrated use.
I have thrown out some of the ones I have acquired in the past.
