‘Our Peppermint Pure-Castile Bar Soap is made with certified fair trade ingredients and organic hemp oil for a soft, smooth lather that won’t dry your skin. 100% biodegradable in a 100% post-consumer recycled wrapper.’
Dr. Bronner’s was founded in 1958 by Emanuel Bronner, a third- generation master soapmaker from a German-Jewish soapmaking family and the Bronner family have been making soap every since. Dr Bronner’s states, “We are committed to making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality while dedicating our profits to help make a better world.”
I tried their All-one Hemp Peppermint Pure-Castile Bar Soap, the most popular scent of their bar soap collection. I like that the soap comes packaged in 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper with the label printed in water-based ink and that it contains at least 80 percent Fair Trade ingredients,is suitable for vegans and non-GMO.
It’s made with a number of skin-loving organic oils, including coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, hemp oil and jojoba oil – all of which leave your skin super soft and supple. The peppermint scent instantly hits you as you unwrap the soap and it’s a truly fabulous scent. The organic peppermint oil leaves your skin tingling and it’s fantastically awakening and invigorating too, making it a great wash to use in the morning shower. Peppermint is also known to be useful for clearing the sinuses and acne, so it’s certainly worth a try if you suffer from either of these complaints!
Unlike other natural soaps, Dr Bronner’s lathers up easily to create soft, bubbly, minty foam, making it easy to wash from head to toe. The soap is suitable to be used on your hair and face as well as the body and it’s long lasting. My single bar lasted for just over a month and that was me using it all over every single day!
The other big bonus? The price! Dr Bronner’s is only £4.49 and it honestly feels like a bargain, especially considering how luxurious this soap feels. The number of organic oils used, the recycled paper and the writing pressed into both sides of the soap all make it feel like an expensive treat!
