Trimethylglycine (pure betaine anhydrous powder) - Trimethylglycine (betaine) - 25, 50 and 100g



Flower Tales Trimethylglycine (TMG) is a pure and natural product. TMG is an aminoacid obtained from beets. Sometimes also known as betaine, it is not to be confused with cocoamidopropyl betaine, a surfactant. It is used primarily as a stabilising agent, although it also has humectant, soothing and conditioning properties. It promotes skin hydration, cellular metabolism, has an anti-oxidant action and is well tolerated even by sensitive skin. Its neutral ionic charge (TMG is a zwitterion) makes it a poly-functional ingredient.

Solubility: Water soluble


1-8% (10% max), most commonly 2-5% in A Phase or C Phase. Do not heat over 40°C.

  • As a solubiliser for salicylic acid and allantoin: Mix 50% water and 50% TMG, then disperse the salicylic acid or the allantoin. For salicylic acid, adjust the pH to 4.5-5.5
  • As a buffer for acid pH, particularly in formulas with salicylic acid. Dosage: 4-5%.
  • As a stabiliser
  • As a humectant and moisturising agent. Dosage: 2-4%
  • As a skin or hair conditioning agent. Dosage: 1-2% max
  • To mitigate other aggressive ingredients, such as some primary and secondary surfactants. Dosage 4-5%; pH of final product: 4.5-5.5. When used in combination with surfactants, TMG gives a thicker and more durable foam.
