Anybody know what exactly is in water conditioners?

I've been using Jungle Start Right for removing chlorines and chloramines.
However I have noticed that there are no ingredients labeled on the bottle.
I found the MSDS on "Start Right" and it stated it was non-toxic but may emit Cl2 and NaO2 when exposed to high heat.
Just what exactly are these "conditioners" composed of?

LOL! Sorry. I don't even know. I would assume various binding agents. I don't use them so haven't really thought about that.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Stuff that neutralizes chlorine and all things toxic in your tap water. Nobody really knows, or cares, it's just that they work! The manufacturer would be a better person to ask. But water conditioners are almost never exposed to high temperatures, if you store yours in a cabinet and don't heat your aquarium water to 140 degrees F.
