Ingredients to Feed Your Hair & Skin From The Outside-In™
USA Pasture-Raised Leaf Lard
Pasture-Raised, Pure, Hand-Rendered USA Lard feeds your hair and skin with an extra-nourishing balanced fatty acid content and the world’s highest Vitamin D3 content, second only to cod liver oil. Lard has been used in haircare since medieval times for hair growth and hair health management. Our lard is carefully hand-rendered to keep its precious rare nutrients in-tact – learn more here. Leaf lard, specifically, is a fine, soft, white fat rendered from the fat in the kidney region of pigs and hogs that is particularly high in nutrients.
Golden Jojoba Oil
Certified Organic Golden Jojoba Oil is actually a type of liquid plant wax that is claimed to be very similar to our skin’s sebum, providing a light moisturization without clogging pores. Jojoba oil has been very useful for haircare professionals, lending extra shine, strength, and manageability to hair health.
Moroccan Argan Oil
For decades, Argan Oil has been used by the world’s best salons and promoted by the most elite hair-dressers for good reasons. From multiple scientific studies, argan oil has been shown to provide great protection against hair breakage and heat damage in professional salon settings. Shine and manageability are also markedly improved when incorporating our Certified Organic Argan Oil into one’s haircare routine.
Certified Organic, Hexane-Free Castor Oil has been used for centuries to help heal damaged skin while also restoring new hair growth.* Also known as the “Palm of Christ”, its many priceless uses have yet to be overshadowed by any other known oil. Castor oil also helps to provide a thick, robust, and stable lather, while additionally strengthening the hair shafts and reducing split ends.
Our unrefined, Certified Fair-Trade and Organic Cocoa Butter is a natural, aromatic fat extracted from roasted Theobroma cacao seeds during the production of cocoa powder. Cocoa butter has gained popularity in the hair and skin care field due to the luxurious feel it renders to your skin and hair.
The presence of essential fatty acids, phytochemicals, Vitamin E, antioxidants and other bio-active compounds in cocoa butter enhances hair texture, strengthens hair roots, enables better moisture retention and helps to prevent various hair problems such as dryness, dandruff, split ends and hair loss.
Our unrefined, Certified Fair-Trade and Organic Shea Butter is a byproduct of shea nuts harvested from the Vitellaria paradoxa trees in West Africa. The shea tree is also known as the “karite tree” (which means “tree of life”) because of its many healing properties. There is evidence that food, skin balms, soaps, shampoos, traditional medicines, cooking, and lamp oils have been made with shea butter in Africa for thousands of years. Its use has been documented as far back as the 14th century.
Shea butter has many potential benefits for hair and skin including moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging effects. A scientific study found applying shea butter to skin can help treat eczema. Shea butter is also very moisturizing for the hair and scalp. People with curly and coarse hair textures benefit from using shea butter as a sealant to keep moisture in their hair and increase softness.
Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp is a member of the Cannabis sativa species of plant. You may have heard this plant referred to as marijuana, but our Certified Organic, Extra-Virgin, Unrefined, Food-Grade Hemp Seed Oil is really a different variety of Cannabis sativa. Hemp seed oil is a clear green oil made by cold-pressing hemp seeds. It’s different from cannabidiol (CBD), which is an extract produced from hemp flowers and leaves. Hemp seed oil typically doesn’t contain the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which provides the “high” associated with marijuana use. Hemp seed oil, while not containing CBD or THC, is said to have many health benefits, among them that it protects hair from damage while helping to moisturize, strengthen, and assist hair in growth.
Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are considered by experts to be good for hair when taken as an oral supplement and hemp seed oil has plenty of both. For example, a 2015 study found improvement in the hair diameter and hair density of participants who took omega-3 and omega-6 oral supplements over the course of six months. Researchers on the study also discovered that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in combination with antioxidants prevented hair loss in participants who took them.
Our pure and fatty Cetearyl Alcohol is derived from nature and is a necessary ingredient in conditioners for its degreasing properties and water-solubility. Cetearyl alcohol isn’t “bad” for you, your skin, or your hair. Most importantly, cetearyl alcohol is very different from “regular” alcohols, like ethanol. It’s a white, waxy mixture of cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol, both fatty alcohols. These naturally-occurring chemical compounds are just like those found in animals and plants while being very safe for people and planet.
BTMS is an ionized salt derived from nature and is an absolute necessary ingredient for making natural conditioner. BTMS is the acronym for the long scientific name of the compound “Behentrimonium Methosulfate” however, BTMS is NOT a sulfate and is very environmentally friendly. This ingredient is irreplaceable for a powdery-smooth conditioning finish, instead of a heavy, oily, or greasy feel. It is an effective emulsifier, making our natural conditioner more water-soluble and silky-smooth to the touch.
For the conditioning effects most of us are used to with commercial conditioners, BTMS is the most natural way for us to achieve this effect! If you would like to avoid this ingredient for a more natural option (but not as effective or convenient), just use straight jojoba oil (or another moisturizing fat) on hair ends before shampooing with our shampoo bars. Our hair oil is available here as the more natural alternative. Other alternatives include herbal hair tea rinses, apple cider vinegar water rinses, or witch hazel water rinses after shampooing.
Mica Mineral Pigments
A very small amount of Cosmetic-Grade Mica Mineral Pigments helps each conditioner look unique and attractive in their own special color for a fun experience! This also lessens confusion between other conditioners during use. Will not clog pores, or stain surfaces. This is the same main ingredient in many natural cosmetic make-ups.
Phthalate-Free and Paraben-Free Fragrance Oils are included for a familiar and comforting scent. Did you know that most body care shoppers make their purchase decisions based solely on scent satisfaction? The olfactory system is directly related to emotions and memories, which is why scents are such an important factor for many. Please keep in mind that not including phthalates and parabens will reduce the scent hold, decreasing the linger time and strength compared to what many are used to with store-bought products. Learn more about our safer fragrance oils HERE and read about this product’s scent and scent strength in the product’s scent tab.
Don’t settle for anything less than the absolute best for your hair and skin
*Our statements not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. We do not guarantee or claim that our products can cure, treat, or prevent any disease.
Best By Date:
Store in a room-temperature, dry place out of direct sunlight.
If turning into a liquid, please use within 3 months of making (or within 1 year of making if liquid conditioner booster was added)
We recommend using the conditioner bar within 1 year of first use for best results, as nutritional contents fade and break down faster over time once disturbed.
Our 2.25 oz conditioner bars last an average of 3 months for most users. If you convert the entire 2.25 oz bar to liquid you will make over 25 ounces of liquid. Instructions can be found here.
For someone with long and thick hair using the product heavily every day, our conditioner bar would last only about a month. It often takes 3-9 months for most users to get through a conditioner bar depending on how often and how much they need to condition.
For drier scalps or textured hair, you may use it all over your head to help with dandruff or other issues. Will not leave hair or scalp greasy looking if applied lightly, and rinsed out thoroughly and quickly. You may also use the conditioner as an in-shower skin lotion. These extra applications will lessen the duration period.
Since our shampoo soaps nourish the hair so much better than regular shampoos, most people find they need to use LESS conditioner than they did prior.
Do NOT place in direct heat or light as bar will melt. Do NOT let sit in water as bar will get mushy. Please read our conditioner directions before use.
During transit to the Southwestern USA states, some products melt slightly between the June-August months. Before and after these months, we usually never hear of a melting problem.
If you live in these especially hot areas, the best remedy is to stock up during the other 9 months.
Refrain from purchasing until your weather temperatures reach below 100°F/38°C as your product could MELT slightly during transit if exposed to temperatures above 100°F/38°C. Please watch your tracking information and try to grab your shipment from your mailbox as soon as you can.
Another option is during checkout, add special delivery instructions to your order note for the postal carrier to follow when delivering your package. **PLEASE NOTE that your carrier may or may not see or follow these instructions!!** These instructions will show on the shipping label in bold lettering below the tracking barcode (in 78 characters or less).
- One instruction is to have a cooler with icepacks and a water-proof container inside the cooler to place the package into. “PLEASE PLACE PACKAGE INSIDE BAG IN COOLER ON FRONT PORCH” – would be an example of an acceptable label instruction within the correct length of characters (up to 78 including spaces).
- Another instruction would be – “PLEASE LEAVE WITH APARTMENT MANAGER IN FRONT OFFICE.” This is another example of acceptable length so it doesn’t sit in a hot outdoor mail box.
This is for ALL products: To our current knowledge, we use all ingredients within the FDA (United States Food & Drug Administration) regulations. The safety factor of using any product depends on each individual’s medical condition(s) and sensitivities. Without consulting your medical practitioner prior to use, all consumers assume responsibility for any risks or health hazards from using a product for the manufacturer’s intended purposes. We never recommend allowing a product to be used outside of its intended purposes (i.e. ingesting a product created for external purposes only). We are not licensed healthcare providers: we cannot share medical advice or medically approve a product for any individual’s condition. We can only offer sales advice and we always advise a physician’s pre-approval before using any product.
All Perma-Earth products are only to be used as suggested or implied by their listing descriptions and informational tabs. It is the sole responsibility of the consumer to educate themselves on every product’s ingredients and proper usage before purchase and to seek medical advice from their healthcare provider before use.
If pregnant, nursing, planning to become pregnant, or will use a product on any dependent, please consult with your licensed healthcare provider before using any products. We do have products intended for babies and approved by our own personal pediatricians in our baby shop section. Even in these cases, we still advise a consultation with your personal healthcare provider before using any product on yourself or a dependent. Again, we are not responsible for individual reactions due to a medical condition, allergy, or special sensitivity. We advise everyone to use precaution with trying a product on themselves or a dependent.
Please note that at Perma-Earth LLC, we pride ourselves on being fully transparent with all of our ingredients, unlike many companies that hide other ingredients under one name or do not disclose the full ingredients list. All ingredients used in the amounts regulated by the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) are clearly listed in every product’s online electronic listing descriptions and tabs via our ecommerce website at perma-earth.com (which you are viewing now). Consumers take the full risk of using the products as-intended by seller (whether suggested or implied) upon purchase.
Furthermore, Perma-Earth LLC extensively tests their products in-house on their own limited personnel with their acknowledged consent. We do our absolute best to comply with the most up-to-date safety and usage requirements of each ingredient for the specific purposes of use or benefits intended from use. We also take great measures to maintain proper shelf-stability needs of the product to reduce or eliminate any possibility of microbial growth hazards derived from contamination during use or the natural environment within the specified use period from manufacture date. Please see each product’s expiration information contained in the online listing.
Any consumer may contact us to request more information about suggested uses, specific ingredients of concern used in current formulations, or other manufacturing contact points at any time from us before or after purchase. To which we will do our best to relay the most accurate information to account for public safety concerns without compromising copyrights.
ALL PRODUCTS ARE PRODUCED AND STORED IN THE SAME FACILITY, OFTEN USING THE SAME EQUIPMENT CLEANED BETWEEN EACH USE. We cannot fully guarantee that especially sensitive allergic conditions such as to egg or dairy or gluten or latex are not cross-contaminated at a microscopic level. Please keep in mind that the epidermal system is not the same as the digestive system – many digestive allergens such as lactose or gluten intolerance only affects the internal digestive system only if and when ingested – please see your doctor for clarifications with your specific needs before purchase or use. If one has any known topical allergies/sensitivities to any of a product’s stated ingredients, we advise NOT to purchase or use that product.
As stated prior, Perma-Earth takes all possible measures to pre-test every product on our own staff members and family members before offering a product for sale. Personal dissatisfactions or unique reactions experienced by consumers or their dependents are not the fault of the manufacturer (Perma-Earth LLC), as this is the consumer’s risk of responsibility to educate themselves on their unique sensitivities and to contact the company with any further questions.
For instance, if one has a rare reaction to a preservative, oil, or fragrance – this is a consumer’s sole risk of using the product being pre-informed of the product’s ingredients or description of use prior to purchase. One must also take into consideration the “inferred” use of an ingredient in another product that they have previously deemed safe for use… For instance, if one has no reaction to a “grapefruit scented with essential oils” product and yet has a reaction to an “grapefruit essential oil scented” product, that does not mean that only true grapefruit essential oil was used in the prior product, nor does this guarantee that one will not have a reaction to another grapefruit scented product, as everyone uses different ratios and sources. If one discovers a sensitivity to one of our ingredients, we suggest seeking medical advice and to contact us with as much detail as possible, including clear photographs for us to record and log. Please see our shop policies for further information of disclaimers and directions.
If any consumer has a unique sensitivity or reaction from using our products as intended (whether suggested or implied), please contact us for our records so that we may re-assess safety procedures and also consider changing the formulation if it does not impede with the original intent and purpose of the formula, or discontinue a product entirely. We record ALL reports of sensitivities and reactions for logging and review by the company periodically or on an as-needed basis to assess proper compensations and/or necessary changes to insure the safety and trust of our customers to the best of our abilities.
