I’ve long been a fan of Dr. Bonner’s castile soap. Its gentle, non-toxic, and can be used for a wide variety of things. I’ve bought travel sizes of the soap to use while on vacation and cleaned my body, face, used in place of shaving gel and instead of hand soap.
This amazing brand has been around for a long, long time. Take a look at the history:
Dr. Bronner’s was founded in 1948 by Emanuel Bronner, a third-generation master soapmaker from a German-Jewish soapmaking family. He used the labels on his superb ecological soaps to spread his message that we must realize our unity across religious & ethnic divides or perish: “We are All-One or None!” Still family-owned and run, Dr. Bronner’s honors its founder’s vision by continuing to make socially & environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, and by dedicating our profits to help make a better world.
Certified organic, non-gmo, vegan, and no animal testing, this brand is at the top of my favorites. If you haven’t tried their liquid soap, do it! They also make bar soaps, toothpaste, hair care, coconut oil and more.
The Hemp Almond Pure Castile Soap does everything! I love the scent of almonds and I keep this in my shower to clean and shave. You only need a tiny amount so it lasts a very long time. Look at its many uses:
Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Pure-Castile Soaps are good for just about any cleaning task. Face, body, hair & food, dishes, laundry, mopping, pets—clean your house and body with no synthetic preservatives, detergents or foaming agents—none!
I love patchouli and the patchouli lime Organic Hand & Body Lotion is another favorite. Like I have mentioned before, I may use conventional (and possibly not the cleanest of ingredients) makeup but my skin care is always non-toxic.
Its made with organic jojoba oil which gives skin lots of moisture, organic coconut oil hydrates, organic hemp and avocado oils ensure skin will be velvety smooth. Not greasy at all and leaves no residue. I am obsessed with the scent!
The toothpaste is also a must-have. I am not a fan of fluoride in my personal care products and Dr. Bronners offers fluoride-free toothpaste that is 70% organic. Here the official description:
Our low-foaming formula has no synthetic detergent foaming agents, is fluoride-free, vegan and cruelty-free, with no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or sweeteners & none! This simple yet effective toothpaste stimulates mouth, teeth, gums and tongue, leaving them fresh and clean. Made in a 100% recyclable box and tube. Available in peppermint, cinnamon and anise flavors.
I love the Dr. Bronners toothpaste, it works well and has a great consistency plus my teeth and mouth feel clean after I brush!
I could not be happier with Dr. Bronner’s products! One of the questions I get most is which budget friend natural/non-toxic brands I would recommend. Bronner’s is at the top of my list. Their simple ingredients and excellent, effective products along with the fact you can find them in many stores make this brand a must-have!
Go here to shop in the Dr. Bronners store, I am obsessing over the Cosmic Rainbow tee shirt!
