Is this safe for my tank?

I'm cycling my 10 gallon planted tank right now and I need to add ammonia. I have great value ammonia from Walmart it has ammonium hydroxide n surfactants in it. Is it the right kind? It's colorless n Fragrance free. Ps no fish yet

I believe if it has surfactants you can't use it. I heard a good rule is to shake it and if it gets bubbles on top you can't use it
