When I think of Castile soap, I usually think about the brightly colored bottles that I see at my local supermarket in those black racks that have the bottles in a slanted up right position. I usually see people walk past it or not even give it a thought to pick one up and read it. And i don’t blame them. This stuff has allot of writing on it. But when i finally discovered what those bright colorful bottles were, I was even more delighted when Dr. Bronner’s gave me the opportunity to work with them.
Giving a little over view, Dr. Bronner’s has been in the business of selling Castile Soap for over 150 years. Their soaps are all organic (certified by the USDA) , naturally derived from oils such as jojoba, coconut, olive, hemp oils. They also use other oils like citrus oil depending on which one you purchase. They are also vegan, fair trade, cruelty free, and is apart of the Non-Gmo organization.
Now onto the actual review (or the part you actually care about). I chose to review the Almond flavor Castile Soap. Before my review, I watched many YouTube videos of what this soap could clean. I really wanted to put this soap to the test and make sure that if i was going to suggest this product to my readers, that I myself was in love with this soap.
Well. I will tell you that there is absolutely nothing that this soap cant clean. And I mean that. This is the real MVP of all natural, all purpose cleaners. I washed my dishes, my hair, my dog, and multiple surfaces with this product.
For the bulk of this review however, I am going to talk about my hair, my dishes, and my dog. My hair. Now this soap when washing my hair is very similar to a clarifying shampoo. Except there is no sulfates, parables, or other bad things that women with natural hair and all hair types should avoid when washing your hair (blog post about that later on), but I will say that the soap strips my hair in a good way. Because of its naturally derived ingredients (most is not all them being oils), the soap only takes away product build up and not the natural oils that your scalp produces.
My dog. While I don’t think my Hunts is a dirty boy, I will say that that after using this soap, my dogs fur was way brighter than when I would use his regular shampoo. He seems to like it allot more as well. As for my dishes, I had just so happen to run out of dish washing liquid and decided to give this a try. My dishes were squeaky clean and yes this soap does suds up allot in all cases. Especially when washing hair. Did I also forget to mention that you can brush your teeth with this product? Yes. Yes you can.
Would i recommend this product, absolutely. I have since then bought two 32oz bottles and have even tried the peppermint flavor as well. Very strong. But oh so clean. I look forward to trying the other flavors in the line up as this has become a staple product of mine.
