One ingredient, ten products: Incroquat BTMS-50 - the summary

What have we learned from making loads of different products with Incroquat BTMS-50?

It's a versatile ingredient. We can use it as a conditioning agent as it has a positive charge. We can use it as an emulsifier as it will bring oils and water together. We can use it as a thickener and stiffener in bars, whipped oils, and sugar scrubs as it thickens our products.

It offers conditioning to our skin, something the other non-ionic or anionic emulsifiers like Polawax, e-wax, or Ritamulse SCG don't offer.

We can use it in anhydrous - non-water containing products - and water containing products.

With water and a preservative, we can make ourselves an awesome conditioner! We'll want to add extra things to it to offer shine, detangling, moisturizing, and so on, but it can be used on its own.

And we've learned how to make ten different products with it!
