Dr. Bronner's Organic Hand & Body Shikakai Soap -- 12 fl oz

Certified Fair Trade. Cruelty Free. Vegan. Non-GMO Project Verified. Organic shikakai comes from the seed pods of the small south asian tree acacia concinna and has been used for over 1000 years in India as a gentle conditioning cleanser for both skin and hair. We extract the shikakai in organic sugar and grape juice which have excellent humectant (moisturizing) qualities and combine with Dr. Bronner's castile soap base for rich emollient lather. Did you know that organic sugar is one of the best things you can use on your skin? The reason is that it is a natural humectant. Whereas salt pulls water out of the skin sugar puts it back in. So in addition to giving our soaps a wonderful caramel aroma and color they also make sure that the skin of your face and body is hydrated and super-soft and smooth

Good product but expensive

"A little does go a long way but Dr. Bronner's liquid pure castile soap in the large bottle would do the same trick for less money."

Great scent

"Soap has a great natural lavender scent; however it is a dark brown color and I was not too happy with it at first. I realize its because its all natural but its not a "pretty" soap."

LOVE the soap, HATE the residue on sink & shower.
 December 19, 2012
"I LOVE the soap for hair, skin, hands! It cleans with-out drying (even in winter's dry air). In "regular" humidity, I don't even have to put-on lotion! I've worn lotion daily for nearly all my life; I'm thrilled I get to skip a step!
I use it as a shampoo with Dr. Bronner's Magic All-One Organic Shikakai Conditioning Hair Rinse Citrus & Dr. Bronner's Magic Organic Hair Creme Lavender Coconut on my ends. My hair looks pretty amazing: shiny, full (but NOT frizzy - FINALLY!!!)! I get alot of compliments.
A little goes a long way.
The ONLY down-side is the residue it leaves on my sink, glass, & tub/shower (the reason I gave it 4 stars). It's a thin, waxy, residue that shows up immediately after use. Dr. Bronners Sal Suds cleans in instantly. HOWEVER, it's a small price to pay for TOXIN-FREE & BIO-DEGRADABLE.

Make a nice rich lather

"I'm pretty certain this hand soap cleans better than petroleum based hand soaps. Hands feel squeaky clean and never dried out. Smells great too."
