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

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps: 18-in-1 Hemp Lavender 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 LAVENDER Pure-Castile Soap contains both Lavandin & Lavender essential oils to create a soothing and harmonizing bathing experience for the body and mind. Like long serene sunsets over still calm waters Lavender-Castile showers replenish and recharge the soul. 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.

QUALITY Company & Product!
 October 21, 2014
"Dr. Bronner's is another quality company with good products and an excellent reputation i.e. "Right-to-know" sponsors regarding GMOs. I like the lavender best, but they have other great "flavors". I continually find new uses for their products."

Great liquid hand-soap
 January 19, 2011
"I bought this when I did the HCG Diet because it didn't have sodium lauryl sulfate or propylene glycol. It smells so good and doesn't dry my hands out like most liquid soaps. It is also good for more than just hand soap."

Relaxing soap
 June 2, 2010
"Everyone knows that lavender is relaxing and no one was lying! I bought this soap for my extra sensitive skin because Trader Joe's stopped carrying their Pure Castile soap. This soap does the job and is also very relaxing compared to the invigorating scent and feel of the peppermint (which I also love). I would recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin who likes the scent of lavender."

My favorite Dr. Bronner soap
 December 7, 2009
"I've sampled all of the scents Dr. Bronner offers and of all of them this one is by far my favorite. I use this one as a shampoo and body wash. My boyfriend always compliments me on how good I smell when I get out of the shower. I've since purchased the 32 oz of this scent. It could be used for many other cleaning jobs but I personally prefer different scents for the household cleaning. I've never used this scent to clean, but have with others and the 18-in-1 soaps clean very well. I used the eucalyptus soap (about a half oz in a bucket of water) and it cleaned my entire apartment floor to ceiling. And I'm pretty sure the scent doesn't have much bearing on the functionality of the soap, so the lavender would probably clean just as well. I've been surprised at how well this soap cleans and yet somehow manages to be gentle on the skin. I highly recommend this and all Dr. Bronner's products (or at least the ones I've tried so far)."

This smells sooooo goooooood!!!
 September 19, 2008
"if you love lavender scent, you will LOVE this. I got a small bottle so I can carry with me in my handbag to use when I am not home (at home I have much larger size bottles). I use it for hand wash and facial wash. it's refreshing and leaves skin soft and clean. no cleanser residual on face. rinses off nicely. the scent is just heavenly! great if your day is full of stress. the scent just relaxes you. I like Dr. Bronner's products because it is organic and safe."
