My Trip to a Beauty Supply Store.
I’m the chief formulator for our products. I’m like most guys. I just
don’t like to go shopping. I buy almost everything over the internet.
Occasionally I do have to see what other products are out there. A lot
of merchants don’t put ingredients on their web site. So I have to go to
stores and study labels. We went to *ally Beauty Supply. There are
dozens and dozens of conditioners there. I lost count. One thing that
surprised me was the number of products with Argan in the name. Argan
this and Argan that. I lost count. Gee this must be SOME ingredient!
If these companies love Argan Oil so much, how come they use so little
Most of the time Argan Oil was so far down the ingredient list that you
could only be getting a drop or two from each use. You see, the
ingredient list is not in alphabetical order, but by the actual amount
of the ingredient in the product (prominence). These products were Argan
in name only. Of course, we know why. At $90 to $150 per gallon, it is
pricey. And often it is hard to know if you are actually getting all
Argan oil. Suppliers are known to lie and bastardize with other oils.
This is why we are very picky about where we buy our supplies. We use
the best, Virgin Argan Oil which is $150 a gallon.
Argan Oil is one of the most precious oils in the world. It comes from a
very hardy tree that only grows in Moroccan in the desert. The Argan
Trees only produce every other year. The seeds/nuts are incredibly hard.
They require a lot of hand labor to get the oil out. Many areas of
Morocco rely on this oil as their only income source. We use it in
several of our moisturizers and are very familiar with Argan Oil. It is
amazing and we love it!
Argan Oil is world renown as a curative oil for the hair. It is loaded
with nutrients that the hair can use to become healthy. The difficult
part is getting those benefits into your hair.
So why not just buy Argan Oil and apply it to your hair? Because our
skin and hair cannot absorb oils by themselves. When you apply an oil
directly to your hair, it leaves a film and just catches dirt from the
air and feels greasy. The key is getting the Argan oil to absorb into
your hair and scalp. For that to happen Argan has to be in a true
moisturizer base. One thing we do know how to do is make a moisturizer.
MAKING A TRUE MOISTURIZER IS ALMOST A LOST ART.
So we figured it would be easy to make a good hair conditioner.Boy were
we wrong! I constantly study spread sheets. Trying to predict which
ingredients and percentages are going to work. If you have 8 or 10
ingredients, the number of possible percentages are infinite. Hair
conditioners are infinitely more complicated than moisturizers. What I
mean is conditioners have to be rinsed out, unlike moisturizers which
stay on the skin. You get into terms like: cationic quaternary
compound, Adsorption as apposed to absorption, substantivity. We’re
working with positive charged ingredients which adhere to your negative
AND we wanted to make a conditioner with Virgin Argan Oil as the primary
ingredient. No one does this!
I call myself the First Guinea Pig. If it doesn’t pass my test, it goes
no further. I think the last time I had long hair was when I was in
college. And that was decades ago. I keep my hair short because it gets
split ends and it looks dull and hard to get a comb through without that
tearing feeling. I’ve even considered shaving my head. So I decided I
would allow my hair to grow as we tested each version of this
conditioner. My hair is gray and has not been a very good color of gray
for a while. So I was amazed at how my hair was growing out. Some days
while doing the testing I was washing and conditioning my hair twice a
day. Something most people would never do. Yet as my hair grew I notice
how soft it was. And now my hair has several shades of gray. I was
getting comments. No
split ends either. Quite frankly I thought I was imaging it. And my
scalp seemed healthy too. it seemed like my scalp used to get scratches
and sores spots occasionally. That was no longer happening.
So I sent a bottle to my son. I explained to him, you can’t just apply
it and immediately rinse it out. Our conditioner needs time in the hair.
Put it on in the beginning of the shower. Right after you shampoo. Rinse
it out at the end of the shower. He’s in his mid twenties and using
Rogaine to keep a full head of hair. Rogaine is hard on the hair. He was
skeptical, but after a week of using it he sounded very excited. He
believes this might be a breakout product for us. He said he should have
done a before picture. He couldn’t get over how wonderful his hair
looked and felt. He lives in Los Angeles and it is very dry there.
Silicone is also known as dimethicone. But it has several other chemical
names and forms. What is does is make things slick. It is the active
ingredient in those anti-gas products people take. Silicone makes the
big manufacturers job easy, since they can fill containers fast without
worrying about bubbles or foam. We don’t use silicone, because it also
leaves a film on the skin and hair. For hair care our worry was it seals
the hair and actually starves the hair of nutrients. But isn’t it great
for combability? Yes, when your hair is wet, silicone helps the comb
glide through the hair. So with our product your hair will not get that
ease of combing until it dries. As you continue to use our conditioner,
you’ll see your hair getting healthier because it can now absorb the
nutrients in our product. And your hair will get easier to comb.
This is a review from Amazon
Unfortunately, I’m allergic to dimethicone, which seems to be in
almost every single conditioner. Despite conditioners that say they
are organic, they either have dimethicone in the ingredients or they
use it to manufacture the product and don’t list it in the
ingredients. I have given up on using conditioner and finally tried
this one. My hair has never been so shiny or silky, even when using
Wen. Recommend: Combing or brushing your hair before washing &
conditioning, as this product is not a de-tangler. Despite this it
washes off clean (which is important as I break out easily), and
when your hair dries its shiny, more manageable, softer, and
silkier. Most importantly my scalp seems healthier and it doesn’t
cause me to break out on my back which Wen did. I have not used a
hair conditioner for about 1 and 1/2 years, within the first use I
noticed that my hair was noticeably shinier and softer. The effect
lasted through about 2 shampoos. I have been using the product for
about a month and two weeks and my hair is shiny and soft. I have
natural curl, so I find this effect extra amazing. As it’s so much
easier to have shiny and silky hair when your hair is straight. dna
conditioner is awesome. Even when using it after head and shoulders, my
hair continues to feel softer and softer each day. It has even started
to appear shinier after a couple weeks. I am due for a dead end trim
this summer, so I imagine after that, it will only get better. The funny
thing is that one day I sprayed some additional argan oil shine spray
over top to see if it added shine. As the day went on, my hair appeared
dryer and less soft/shiny. My hair was way better with just the
conditioner being the last product used.
love this conditioner. I have been a customer now for over 5 years,
maybe longer, and I decided to order this for the family and we
absolutely love it. I will never buy another conditioner again….waiting
on a shampoo next! Cinnamon
Review Details: I have 3c (3a with length)/ ii/iii / BCL hair. Normal
porosity. I’ll be up-front about it- I’m a major hair-product snob.
MAJOR! I gave up silicone (‘cones)and sulfates more than 5 years ago.
I’m more than a tiny bit leery of proteins. I once *ran* away from a
mall kiosk person trying to spray something in my hair. Yes, I’m a snob.
BUT, I adore Carley’s products, so when I got a sample, I had to try it.
Holy wow! Usually I just forgo conditioner all the way and use one of my
favorite leave-ins (NBs Panacea) to lock in moisture. But this is
amazing. I wanted to make sure that I was actually getting the full
potential so I got out the clarifying shampoo. *shudder* After that, I
used about 3 tablespoons worth of conditioner, starting at the ends, and
gently raking my way up the length. It did feel a little, grainy? whilst
I was going about the shower routine, but when it washed out- Heaven. It
was so, so easy to detangle, and the slip was amazing. Plus, my hair
didn’t take the usual HOURS it does to air-dry like it does with
conventional conditioners. And even without an ACV rinse, which I
usually do, there isn’t that tacky “there’s still stuff in my hair”
feeling you get with certain conditioners. Bonus points for the scent
not lasting for hours, while it tries to smother me. The peppermint is
very light and refreshing, and fades quickly- a plus for me. For some
reason, I also have crazy awesome volume and defined ringlets without
using another product. I don’t understand how Steve does this, but he
needs to keep on doing it! Big bottle, get in my cart right now- I need
Conditioner smells great and makes my hair feel amazing! Buyer:
Review Details: I have long and thick hair, and have tried literally a
dozens of different brands of conditioners, several from salons. I can
honestly say that this one is much better. A little goes a super long
way and has an addictive mint smell when hair is wet. It moisturizes
incredibly. After perhaps a week of use my hair was noticeably shinier
and easier to brush, less breakage. On my next trip to the salon my hair
dresser of several years asked me what I was doing differently with my
hair. I told her that my guys online make a great conditioner that’s
natural, ph neutral, silicone free and made with premium grade
ingredients. So after years of trying to find a perfect and satisfying
conditioner, I’ve found it. Madeline
product is great! Thank you very much for making it. It gives my hair
the feeling I’ve had when I was a kid. It feels alive again. AJ
Best hair ever with this product Buyer: levisvette ( 439)
My favorite seller. Interesting product… stronger hair, soft when dry.
passed up on your fabulous conditioner, Argan Oil Healthy Hair
Conditioner, because a few comments led me to believe my hair might
need to devote extra time to combing and drying it, time I just
weekday mornings. I have naturally straight hair that is
thick. After shampooing and conditioning, I can comb immediately
any breakage or being stopped by tangles. Whether I blow dry or air
hair, it is always lovely: full of body, increased shine, healthier
and–best of all–not oily and droopy at the end of the day! Julia K.
The next ingredient we looked at was DL Panthenol. We wanted this
conditioner to be more than just Argan oil. At $24 a pound, Panthenol is
another expensive ingredient the helps your hair to be healthy. Also
known as “ProVitamin B5” or “Pantothenic Acid”, 100% panthenol is an
additive no hair care should be without. It’s strengthening properties
are well-known and widely used in professional hair care formulations
where it also provides lustre to the hair when used at 2.0%. Also well
known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties for professional skin care
formulations where it also acts as a powerful redness reducer when used
at only 1.0%. So not only does this benefit the hair it also helps the
scalp to be healthy. We use a full 2%.
Guar Conditioner (GuarSilk) is another pricey ingredient($28 a pound).
It is a unique hair conditioner derived from the Guar bean, and is a
natural hydro colloid. Guar Gum belongs to the legume family and is
primarily cultivated on the Indian subcontinent. Small amounts are also
grown in Texas and Oklahoma. The gum is derived from the endosperm of
the Guar Bean, which contains protein, fiber, and moisture. Through
multi-stage grinding and sifting, the endosperm is separated out and
then ground to a fine powder called guaran. Guar Conditioner (GuarSilk),
and its derivatives, offer several advantages for personal care
formulators looking to add conditioning, and improved aesthetics, to
natural product lines, especially hair care.
The benefits are:
Biodegradable and nontoxic
Conditioner for hair (substantive)
Improves natural moisture in skin
Hair and skin feel softer and smoother
Natural and derived from a renewable source
Positive charge for better bonding to damaged skin and hair
Peppermint: Real oil of peppermint has many benefits for the hair. We
use enough to feel that cooling tingly effect, the longer our
conditioner is on your hair. Peppermint helps oily hair becomes less
oily. And Dry hair becomes less dry. Has been shown to help the health
of the scalp and also reported to help dandruff.
Cetac 30 – Cetrimonium Chloride is a cationic quaternary ammonium salt
that is used as a hair conditioning agent. This is a vegetable derived
ingredient. Its use in conditioners and improves both wet and dry
combing and reduces static electricity. Cationic means it helps other
nutritional ingredients adhere and absorb into the hair even after the
rinse. i noticed as soon as we added this ingredient my hair no longer
had that fly away feeling.
HOW TO USE: Wash & condition your hair at the BEGINNING of your shower.
So our conditioner can have the longest contact. Then rinse at the END
of your shower. 5 to 20 minutes of contact will give your hair shine and
luster. Stop split ends from forming and bring your scalp back to a
Why do we want longer contact? Hair conditioners are moisturizers for
the hair. No one would ever use a moisturizer for their skin and then
wash it off after only 2 minutes.
How long does the average shower last? Studies say the average male
takes 10 minutes and the average female takes 15-20 minutes. Usually
girls have more to do in the shower. But it really depends on the length
of hair and that kind of thing. Someone bald might only take 2-5 minutes
where someone with long hair might take 30 minutes! So wash in the
beginning and condition. Make the last thing you do in the shower
rinsing out our conditioner. If you are in the bath, use clean water to
rinse. And let your hair air dry or blow dry. Towel drying strips
nutrients out of your hair. Plus potentially adds detergents on your
towels to your hair.
So how important are shampoos? Should you use a special shampoo?
Shampoos simply remove embedded oils and dirt in your hair to clean your
hair. In so doing shampoos remove valuable oils/emollients. This is why
you need to add back those emollients with our product. Sodium Laurel
Sulfate shampoos (and most other liquid shampoos) not only remove oils
but strip your hair so thoroughly that hair colors are not safe.
Conditioning is THE most important step.
Reverse Osmosis purified water: virtually all skin care products ‘say’
they use purified water. But the real deal is reverse osmosis purified
water. This mean ZERO contaminants which means the starting point is
pure. It’s expensive to do (goes through 5 filters, which have to be
changed often), but it is the only water we use. We use the waste water
from this purifying process to water our flowers and landscaping. So
there is no waste. Don’t some products use distilled water? Yes but
distilled water is expensive to make (heat is used to boil the dirty
water and stream is collected). the problem we have with distilled water
is it has a lower pH due to the extra ions added during the process. We
prefer to work with pH neutral water. To me there is no more perfect
water than R-O water. I remember the 1st time we made soap with it. As
we poured the soap is was so creamy! It looked like home made ice cream
right before it gets solid. It’s one of our special secrets to how good
our products are.
Virgin Argan Oil (Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil) One of the most precious
carrier oils in the world.
Glycerin (vegetable). What skin care product doesn’t benefit from
Glycerin? Problem is most store bought and even high end moisturizers
use animal derived Glycerin. You don’t even want to know how they make
this glycerin. Unless the label specifically says vegetable it is almost
always animal derived. Yuck!
BTMS (Behentrimonium Methosulfate Cetearyl Alcohol) This is a sulfate
free ingredient. BTMS Conditioning Emulsifier is an excellent cationic
self-emulsifier and conditioner for both hair and skin care. It is
naturally derived from Colza oil and is noted for its exceptional
mildness. BTMS Conditioning Emulsifier offers innovative properties to
formulations as both a mild primary emulsifier and an excellent
Cetac 30 (Cetrimonium Chloride) is a cationic quaternary ammonium salt
that is used as a hair conditioning agent. This is a vegetable derived
ingredient. Its use in conditioners and cream rinses improves both wet
and dry combing and reduces static electricity. Cationic means it helps
other nutritional ingredients adhere and absorb into the hair even after
Panthenol (2%) Panthenol is present in all living cells in the form of Pantothenic acid
which is a constituent of Co-enzyme A. A deficiency in Panthothenic acid
results in dermatological and many physiological disorders. Pantothenic
acid (Vitamin B5) is a natural constituent of healthy hair. Panthenol
(pro-vitamin B5) will convert to pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) in hair.
Panthenol conditions the hair without build up.
GuarSilk (Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride)
Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol (vegetable) this is a waxy vegetable ingredient
used to give the moisturizers a bit of heft and contact feel.
Germall Plus (4/10’s of 1%) (diazolidinyl Urea,
3-Iodo-2-propylbutylcarbarmate) (a vegetable derived preservative to
keep our product fresh) only needs 4/10’s of one percent to keep our
product safe. Look before you ask, no totally natural preservative
really protects products from bacteria. We don’t like using Parabens.
and since we pH balance our moisturizers we are limited in our choice of
preservatives. What’s great about this one is so little is needed to
Oil of Peppermint (Mentha piperita) Although at the bottom of the list,
we use a real USA variety of peppermint oil. You’ll know it is there.
We do not use Phthalates: Ever wonder how most products can last years
and years on the retail shelf? There’s this secret almost
unpronounceable ingredient called Phthalates. It used to be only used to
make plastics stronger and more flexible. But recently it has been
revealed that this mystery ingredient is used to also ensure fragrances
stay fresh smelling in cosmetic products for years. And here’s the
kicker, our government doesn’t require manufacturers to even put this
‘poison’ on the label. But the secret ingredient was revealed when
scientists were trying to figure out why this chemical was turning up in
baby urine. Everything we ship is made fresh, and we only use natural
essences so no need to use Phthalates. Sorry if we sound smug, but the
more we examine the products being sold as good for us the more we find
they aren’t good for us.
pH neutral: And why is this important? Although we use ingredients that
have an acid pH, the finished conditioner is pH neutral, like all of our
moisturizers. We believe the skin is actually stressed by acids.
Virtually all moisturizers on the market are acid. We wondered why? If
acids are so good for the skin as these products claim, why does it feel
so good to take a swim in the ocean? Why does ocean water help your hair
too. Ocean water pH is very much the opposite of acid. Slightly
alkaline. Why is it recommended to keep swimming pool water slightly
alkaline? There is a whole line of thinking now that promotes alkalines.
We believe the skin and all of nature loves alkaline and hates acids. If
the ocean were to all of a sudden become slightly acid, mostly it would
be a dead body of water. Forget this nonsense of the ‘acid mantle’. Our
bodies when healthy, are pH neutral to slightly alkaline.
Most of our ingredients are as close to natural as possible.We avoid
overly processed ingredients. Processing means heat and that destroys
the goodness in these precious ingredients we use.
We also include a free FULL SIZE bar of our Natural shea
butter non-drying soap with each jar. An $8.00 value if
purchases singly. This
Natural soap has to be tried to be believed. It is nothing
short of wonderful.
No animal ingredients or testing EVER! We also get assurances from our
suppliers that all of our raw ingredients are not animal derived or any
animal testing done there either.
Most skin care products you buy to use today, were made in large
factories years ago and have been in storage. Everything we ship was
made in small batches within a few weeks of shipping. Fresh matters!
Quality ingredients matter!
Now keep in mind it is legal in this country to put one drop of an
ingredient into a product and name it after that ingredient. WE DON’T
EVER DO THAT. It might be legal, but it isn’t moral. Besides in our mind
if a product works we will get reorders.
Best if used within one year of receipt. I’ll bet no skin care product
you have bought from a store was made within the last year. Most of the
products were made years ago. We find we can better control our quality
if we make products as they are used. Fresh just makes for better skin
care products. Our families all use our products. We only sell what we
