    Excellent multifunctional ingredient

    Posted by JRD on Sep 12th 2019

    Leaves a wonderful feel on skin and hair. Has many functions: polymer neutralizer, foam booster, emollient, wet combability additive, helps keep skin and hair healthy, thickens some surfactants (e.g. SLES), and more! Good shelf life and easy to use too.
