Dr. Bronner's Organic Pure Castile Liquid Soap Eucalyptus -- 2 fl oz

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps: 18-in-1 Hemp Eucalyptus Pure-Castile Soap. Made with organic oils. No foaming agents. Enjoy 1 soap for 18 different uses! Guaranteed pure potassium castile soap. Dr. Bronner's EUCALYPTUS Pure-Castile Soap generates an intense and invigorating showering space. Inhaling the shower-steamed Eucalyptus is a powerful way to dissolve sluggishness and sloth of spirit. Many people also use this soap as their favorite pet wash. Supermild Castile has outstanding water softening and cleansing powers preferable to harsh soap & defattening synthetics. It does not cut dirt but dissolves it. It is the mildest most pleasant soap you have ever used. Soap is made by saponifying a fat or oil with a strong alkali. A fat or oil is a triglyceride which means that three fatty acids of various carbon lengths are attached to a glycerine backbone. The strong alkali is either sodium (for bars) or potassium (for liquids) hydroxide. The saponification process is a simple one-step reaction with no waste generated: the glycerine is split off from the fatty acids and the fatty acids combine with the sodium or potassium to form soap while the hydroxide forms water. The result is soap glycerin and water (no alkali remains). Quality soap-making consists in great part in choosing the right proportions of the right oils with their different fatty acids. Most commercial soaps skimp on quality because of cost and use lots of tallow from beef fat with a little bit of coconut or palm kernel oil. Our unsurpassed soaps use olive hemp and palm oils instead of tallow and use three to four times more coconut oil than commercial soaps. Saponified coconut oil generates high-lather cleansing even in hard water because it has shorter-chain saturated fatty acids. Hemp olive and palm based soaps make a mild smooth creamy lather because these oils contain longer chain unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Dr. Bronner's makes a higher quality soap in other ways as well. Unlike most commercial soapmakers who distill the glycerin out of their soaps to sell we retain it in our soap for its superb moisturizing qualities. We also superfat our soap with olive fatty acid which both ensures that there is no free alkali and lowers the pH making a milder smoother lather. We use rosemary extract and plant-derived vitamin antioxidants to protect freshness (the rosemary is effective at 0.005% so it contributes absolutely no scent). We do not add any chelating agents dyes whiteners or synthetic fragrances. We use only 100% pure high quality essential oils. Our liquid soaps are so concentrated that they are only a few percent away from being a solid which ecologically saves on packaging materials. They are a superb value costing less than less-concentrated inferior detergent body-wash "liquid soaps." Our soaps are most popular for at-home washing but they also are the choice when camping and hiking as our soaps are so biodegradable and nature-friendly. Dr. Bronner's soaps have spread by quality and word of mouth alone into virtually every health food store in the country. Unsolicited articles raving about our soaps have appeared in magazines and newspapers as diverse as Natural Health Outdoor Gear Vogue The Washington Post The Chicago Tribune The Associated Press The Wall Street Journal Parenting and New Age.

A million and one uses for this great soap
 September 22, 2012
"I have used Dr. Bronner's for years (since the time when the only variety available was peppermint) and find new uses for their products every day. I use the peppermint soap primarily for laundry, as an invigorating weekly bath rub, and for almost everything when traveling (toothpaste, deodorant in a pinch, hand-washing, etc). I use this eucalyptus variety as a kind of room and furniture refresher by mixing a 20 to 1 solution in a spray bottle. If you live with animals who go outdoors, or if you are taking a short hike, it is very effective as a flea/biting insect deterrent (10-1 dilution for house spray. 5-1 dilution for spraying on self)."

"This is a great soap. It smells good, leaves the skin with a good feeling. The price for the quantity is upscale for those of us downstream. It will not be mainstream because of the price for the amount you get in return."

Excellent Soap
 December 7, 2009
"I've loved Dr. Bronner's soap since the first time I used it. I used this eucalyptus scented soap to clean my apartment. I used somewhere around a half oz (probably) in a bucket of water and it cleaned my whole apartment, floor to ceiling. The fact that this cleaner can be used for every aspect of cleaning and I could use the same bucket for my entire apartment saved me so much water. I love a product that has multiple uses. Since being turned on to Dr. Bronner's, I don't use anything else. I use it as an all purpose cleaner (I use the Sal Suds for super dirty jobs), a body wash, a shampoo, laundry detergent...you name it, this soap can probably do it. The eucalyptus scent is very refreshing."

Great For Aroma Therapy
 January 10, 2009
"I have been a longtime user of Dr. B's soaps. They are great for a cheap aroma therapy experience while taking a shower or bath. Just put a dab of the soap in a moist washcloth (peppermint and lavender are great too!) and breathe in.....ahhhhh. Instant spa experience. I bought several of the smaller (2FL oz) bottles and interchange the flavors (so to speak). Enjoy!"
