Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Castile Soaps
Dr. Bronner’s classic 18-in-1 Castile soap formula is simple and ecological, based on Old World quality and expertise, yielding soaps unlike any you have ever used. A combination of organic extra virgin coconut, jojoba and hemp oils, together with pure essential oils, creates a unique soap that cleans effectively without being abrasive and produces a velvety lather that leaves the skin silky-smooth and refreshed. No synthetic foaming agents, thickeners or preservatives are used. Rather, natural plant-derived Vitamin E and citric acid protect freshness, and the liquid soaps are almost solid in density because they are three times more concentrated than other “liquid soaps” on the market, thus conserving packaging materials.
Packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles and 10% Hemp-Flax, 90% post-consumer recycled paper respectively, the classic Castile Liquid and Bar Soaps are available in Peppermint, Lavender, Almond, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Unscented Baby- Mild, Rose and Citrus.
