Silicone Quaternium-16?

Is this a cone or a poly quat? And is t water soluble?

Couldn't find much on it... So far I've been fine with poly quats but avoid silicones.
2A/B. Mix of fine, medium, and coarse (mostly medium). Dense. Mix of normal and high porosity.
Dry climate.


Just a quick Google search and I found these links:

Seems to me as it is a compound of both that is miscible in water, but not necessarily water soluble, perhaps like amodimethicone.

Amodimethicone and other Amine-functionalized Silicones

Polyquats as Conditioning Agents

Hope this helps...
