Dear Customer,

Due to the rising costs of administering small orders, we are instituting a policy for minimum orders of $100, in our efforts to keep costs to as low as possible and offer the best wholesale pricing in the industry.

For orders less than $100, a small order administration fee of $20 will apply. This policy will be effective February 3rd, 2014. We truly regret any inconvenience that this might cause.

Kind Regards,

Alex B. Thomas

Conditioner Cosmetic Base

Average Product Rating: 4.6 / 5 (Based on 16 Customer Reviews)

Paraben Free
Revitalize and recondition your hair with our creamy Conditioner Cosmetic Base. This moisturizing conditioner is silicone free, and restores moisture balance to dry, damaged hair leaving it feeling soft, silky and shiny. This base has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential oils, fragrance oils, botanical extracts and various raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.

Usage: We recommend that no more than 0.5% or 5 ml of any essential oil be added to a liter of our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time, this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth texture, and rate of absorption.

Drum Orders:
Price is FOB from our warehouse. UPS does not ship drums, so shipping charges will be calculated in-house with another courier; or customers can request their preferred courier.
Price includes a bulk open-head drum with plastic liner.
A lead time of 3 weeks is needed in order to fill a drum order.
A non-refundable 50% deposit is required.
Drums on special order cannot be returned. We encourage our customers to try the smaller sizes before placing a special order for a drum. Our return policy is applicable to regular orders only.

This product is fantastic! It holds the fragrance of essential oils and fragrance oils very well. It also works wonderful in my fine curly hair which normally is sooooo hard to detangle! Not anymore!!

This conditioner left my hair feeling wonderful! It didn't weigh my hair down and today I have extra life and bounce in my hair. I have shoulder length dyed hair :0) and in MY experience, I found that it had enough conditioning agents to help with my tangles and leave my hair feeling soft and silky. I love it! Will definitely buy again!

I just tried this conditioner and added fragrance Pink Sugar and extra castor as it is super thick. Very nice, hydrating and great for dry hair. I will try other EO & fragrances and carrier oils mixed in.

Great conditioner, though could use a bit more of a detangling agent. My hair is at my waist, so it would probably detangle average length hair more easily. I mixed this base with Mango, Peach, and Vanilla FO, as well as bee's pollen, apricot kernal oil, and fruit complex. The smell is amazing & it leaves hair smooth and shiny without weighing it down at all.

Because my scalp is extremely sensitive and prone to itching and flaking, I had taken to using large bottles of TresEmme Naturals and mixing it with essential oils. And it was better than any of the commercial conditioners I had tried, but nowhere near as good as this: I've been using this (mixed with Lemongrass, Rosemary, Chamomile and Mint EOs) for a month and a half now, and no more visible flakes on my black shirts. Not one itchy fit either. Even my hair-separation-line (previously pink) has changed colors because my scalp is not constantly irritated anymore. Oh, and the hair looks good too. Love it! :)

I bought the shampoo and conditioner bases as my hair is very dry and damaged I added almond oil, coconut oil and rosemary to both and now I wouldn't go back to the grocery store. My hair is soft, silky and much easier to manage....I'm looking forword to buying more and trying different combinations

I LOVE this conditioner! I have used other "natural" conditioners and they were all okay. This one is amazing!!!!! I use it on my 4 yr old's hair that reaches to her bum and every time it leaves her hair shiny and managable. It also works great on my shoulder length fine hair, doesn't weight it down or leave it greasy. FANTASTIC!!

It's an Ok yet somehow disappointing product (given that I almost love EVERY product from ND, so far), but this rather ordinary. does not give the shine as other commercial conditionner. probably you need to add other stuff to make it shine... i like the idea of DIY for fragrance part, but ND could have a base that already include some essential stuff like silk extract, etc in the base.

Wow! What a fantastic conditioner, even for naturally curly hair! It is a very good quality, and a great price for being mostly "natural".

Very mild contidioner that doesn't irritate the scalp. Leaves the hair soft and easy to comb without parabens, sls or silicons, so its a major PLUS. Easy to use and add other ingredients.
