HOW TO SOFTEN A CONDITIONER BAR.
Place one conditioner bar inside a lidded container.
Fill with a few ounces of water to cover the bar, let sit for 24 hours, flipping over half way through for each side of the bar to soak up water.
The bar will plump up in size and will be soft, like the texture of cream cheese.
The more water you use, the larger and softer the bar gets.
After the initial soak, you can easily adjust the water to bring the bar to a softness you like best.
Use a container that is wider than the bar to accommodate the increase in bar size and for you to be able to easily remove it once softened.
This bar will last you for months, even with regular use.

- SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES FREE These are exempt from labeling requirements and regarded as “trade secrets”. There is no way to determine what the individual ingredients are, and may include phthalates. These have been linked with the aggravation of asthma, headaches, allergic reactions and possible long term central nervous system disorders.
- NO PARABENS
Found in many cosmetics as a preservative. Suspected links between parabens and breast cancer. Be sure to avoid deodorant containing parabens since it’s applied close to the breast area, every day for many, many years.
- SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE (SLS)/SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE (SLES) FREE
There are nearly 16,000 studies in the PubMed science library about the toxicity of this chemical that can be found on the SLS page on Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) website. It is present in nearly all shampoos, scalp treatments, hair color and bleaching agents, toothpaste, body washes and cleansers, make-up foundations, liquid hand soaps, and laundry detergents. Although SLS originates from coconuts, the chemical is anything but natural.
- 1,4-DIOXANE FREE
Any discussion of SLS/SLES must include a discussion of 1,4 dioxane because the manufacturing process of SLS/SLES results in its being contaminated with 1,4 dioxane—a known carcinogen. (NOT to be confused with Dioxin)
- PROPYLENE GLYCOL FREE
Primarily used as a solvent and an aid to absorption through the skin. The main concerns are that this material may be a primary skin irritant and there are possible links to liver abnormalities and kidney damage.
- NO TRICLOSAN
Primarily added to cosmetics as an anti-bacterial agent. It belongs to a class of chemicals known as chlorophenols and is suspected of causing cancer in humans.
- TALC FREE
Sometimes used in deodorants for its ability to absorb moisture and provide a “smooth” feel under the arms. Because of the particle size, it may “block” the underarm pores producing the effect of an antiperspirant. Talc is closely related to the potent carcinogen asbestos. Talc particles have been shown to cause tumors in the ovaries and lungs of cancer victims. http://www.preventcancer.com/consumers/cosmetics/talc.htm
- ZERO PHOSPHATES
Phosphorous is like a fertilizer in our water system. As it Increases algae and aquatic weed growth, the oxygen needed for healthy fish and aquatic life is depleted.
- NO PETROCHEMICALS
The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has found that 1/3 of the substances used in the fragrance industry are toxic. But because the chemical formulas of fragrances are considered trade secrets, companies aren’t required to list their ingredients but merely label them as containing “fragrance”. 95 percent of chemicals used in fragrance are from petroleum. This one word can contain many, many chemicals that don’t need to be listed and are likely endocrine disrupters. This is why these bars only use Essential Oils for scenting.
