Country of Origin
Raw material source
: Colza oil (canola oil); coconut oil and vegetable oils
: Behentrimonium methosulfate is produced from fatty acids obtained from colza oil (canola oil) and further "quaternized" by alkylation of tertiary amines to obtain a quaternary ammonium compound. Cetearyl alcohol is a mixture of the fatty alcohols cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol which are made by catalytic hydrogenation of the triglycerides obtained from vegetable and coconut oils and followed by oxidation of a chain growth product of ethylene oligomerized on a triethylaluminum catalyst.
