Hey,
I am new in this forum, but I came here to hopefully get help with our conditioner bar problem. They are melting ! We live in the Philippines, so it is very humid and hot, but our shampoo bars have no problem with that . But for some reason our conditioner bars are kinda soft and keep on melting by just storing them in the room.
The recipe is :

Cocoa Butter 30.00%
Shea Butter 7.00%
BTMS-50 35.00%
Cetyl Alcohol 20.00%
Coconut Oil 8.00%
D-Panthenol
Rosemary Essential Oil
Orange Essential Oil

Somebody any idea what we could change / add to make them more resistent to heat and/or probably harder ?!
Thank you so much already, hope someone knows a solution to this :)

Thanks, Viv

Your recipe is 45% fats that melt at warm room temperatures. Shea melts around 90F, cocoa around 100F, and coconut around 75F. I'd say that's a likely reason why your product is soft and melty. I agree with Cellador. You need to increase the melt temperature by increasing the BTMS or possibly the cetyl alcohol.
