Dr. Bonner's Castile Soap Review

About three years ago I searched online for an eco-friendly organic soap that would clean my sensitive combination skin. I am a member of the Squidoo community and it is there that I came across a lens/page that introduced me to Dr. Bonner’s Castile Soap. Hands down it is my favorite soap of all times.

Before making a purchase of this soap I researched it and read reviews to find more about its eco-friendly qualities as well as what people thought about it. This soap is indeed eco-friendly: fair-trade, organic, natural, recycled container, etc. It is also very popular. I have never seen so many positive reviews about a product, especially an affordable natural soap, as I did with this one. Dr. Bonner’s Peppermint Pure-Castile Soap seemed to be the most popular one too. So, I decided I had to give it a try. Wow!

This is the best soap I have ever used. The first time I tried it made my skin tingle everywhere (yes, even the sensitive areas) as it cleaned my skin. I was hooked from that day on. A few drops of this soap on a wash cloth went a long way and lathered up perfectly, not too much and not too little. Out of the shower my skin still feel fresh and clean for hours after and it does not dry my skin. It has a pleasant smell to it too, minty.

Dr. Bonner’s Peppermint Pure-Castile Soap can be used all over the body, including the hair, but I found shampooing my hair with it was not my favorite, though it does clean it well. So, I use it only for my skin. I have tried other castile soaps for my skin and not one compares to this one. The neatest thing about Dr. Bonner’s Peppermint Soap is that it can be used as a regular house (kitchen, bathroom, floor) cleaning agent, laundry and for washing your pet too. To be honest though, I haven’t used it on anything else but myself because I’m selfish. Therefore, I can’t say if it works well as a household cleaning agent or pet wash.

At first, to try the soap, I bought the small sized bottle, this was a bit pricey, but then I discovered there were gallon sized containers of this soap. Buying it by the gallon saves money. So, I buy it in bulk, in gallons, to save money and I love that I can do that. Most companies don't care about saving you money. Dr. Bonner’s does. The last gallon I bought was more than a year ago and I still have ¼ of it left to use for many more months.

I have yet to try any other Dr. Bonner Magic Soap products, but look forward to doing so. To find out more about Dr. Bonner products visit the website here
