What in these ingredients would be cleansing?

This is the ingredient list from that creme cleanser base from ingredientstodiefor.

I have a sample of it, and I used it yesterday. I can't really say for sure if my hair felt clean since I had just shampooed well the day before :P lol and there was no product except my leave in and some oil on my hair.

Anyways I was wondering what stands out in the ingredient list as a cleanser. The creme cleanser is suppose to be comparable to wen, I have used wen before - and while it doesn't have that slip wen has (which is due to a cone anyways) it is moisturizing, and when I try it a few days from now on my wash day I will know whether it cleanses well enough.

Heres the ingredient list.

    Behentrimonium Methosulfate is also a mild emulsifier which will cleanse.

    When I look for a conditioner to use for CO I look for Behentrimonium Methosulfate first, then the other methosulfates or stearamidopropyl dimethylamine too.
