I use Dr. Bronner’s both at home and on the road when I’m camping and climbing. It’s been a dish soap, shampoo, body wash, and shaving cream and one time, my laundry detergent. Heck, I just washed my dog with it last night.
Dr. Bronner’s loves the earth! Which is cool, because I also love the earth and I’m stoked to use products that align their beliefs with my own. The liquid soap is organic and made with Fair Trade oils. Because it’s made up of all-natural ingredients, it’s super gentle on the environment (which is probably my number one favorite thing about it). No foaming agents, no detergents, no animal testing, and one hundred percent biodegradable. AMEN.
It’s a combination of olive, jojoba, hemp, and extra virgin coconut oils without the aggressive, nasty chemical additives. Mixed with water, a rich later is produced that cleanses effectively. Perfect for backpacking kits and home use! Love the versatility.
The only things I wouldn’t recommend the liquid soap for are as a toothpaste or mouthwash. It will certainly do the job of cleansing your teeth properly, but I’m pretty sure that the taste never really goes away.
Other cons? I typically won’t use Dr. Bronner’s as a shampoo for my hair. It tends to leave my hair flat. Also when washing dishes, it’s not the extreme grease cutter other dish detergents are. However, I’d recommend Dr. Bronner’s to anybody due to its value (and mostly because I’m obsessed with the lavender and citrus scents).
