Triethanolamine

Triethanolamine is a strong base often used in cosmetics to balance pH as having the correct pH is good for the health of the skin and hair. The pH can also be important for the stability of other ingredients in cosmetics. Triethanolamine can also be added to help improve the stability of a product through its dual action of adjusting the pH and acting as an emulsifier to ensure that the different ingredients don’t separate or crystallize.
