AmmonyX 4 — also known more formally by its chemical names stearyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride or stearalkonium chloride — is a biodegradable cationic surfactant quaternary ammonium compound. It was first designed and used in the fabric industry as a fabric softener. Today, AmmonyX 4 is most commonly used as an emollient, antistatic or conditioning agent in the personal care, cosmetics and beauty industries. Its ability to impart softness and antistatic properties to hair make it an ideal ingredient in conditioners, mousses, cream rinses and other hair products.
