I hadn’t planned on reviewing this, but since I filled my soap dispensers with Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap, nearly everyone who has used it has mentioned how much they like it. I’ve never heard so many unsolicited comments about a hand soap!
I have the Lavender scent and it is absolutely lovely. The scent lingers longer than other soaps I’ve used, which could be a good or bad thing, depending on your preferences.
Because it’s a castile soap, it’s extremely gentle on your skin. It’s free of drying and irritating detergents. Rather, it just contains oils and Lavender extract.
Oh and you probably noticed the label. It’s covered in all sorts of musings about world peace and unifying humanity on Spaceship Earth (I’m not making this up). It’s just about as “out there” as L’Oreal’s labels claiming their anti-aging cream can change your DNA. Regardless, no need to read the fine print. It’s good, basic soap.
