Trolamine contains trace amounts of diethanolamine and ethanolamine. It appears as a white greasy liquid with an ammonia like odor at ambient conditions. When exposed to air and light, it quickly absorbs water and turns brown. It is miscible with water, methanol, and acetone.

About Triethanolamine 

Triethanolamine is an organic compound used to manufacture DIY skin care and cosmetics product and ingredients. Triethanolamine is a strongly alkaline substance used as surfactant and pH adjusting chemical.  Triethanolamine, or TEA is a viscous organic compound that is both a tertiary amine and a triol. A triol is a molecule with three alcohol groups. Approximately 150,000 tonnes were produced in 1999. It is a colourless compound although samples may appear yellow because of impurities. 

Triethanolamine is used primarily in making surfactants, such as for emulsifier. It is a common ingredient in formulations used for both industrial and consumer products. The triethanolamine neutralizes fatty acids, adjusts and buffers the pH, and solubilizes oils and other ingredients that are not completely soluble in water. Triethanolammonium salts in some cases are more soluble than salts of alkali metals that might be used otherwise, and results in less alkaline products than would from using alkali metal hydroxides to form the salt. Some common products in which triethanolamine is found are sunscreen lotions, liquid laundry detergents, dishwashing liquids, general cleaners, polishes, metalworking fluids, paints, shaving cream and printing inks.
