It's a vegetable based emulsifier, meaning it makes water and oil ingredients mix together. It's made of cetearyl alcohol and Polysorbate 60. Some people find it to be very coating, but I don't have a problem with it used normally. It didn't work very well when I used a conditioner with it for CO, though.
