What is Castile Soap?
In earlier centuries, an all-vegetable based soap was made in the Castile region of Spain from local olive oil. By the turn of this century, “Castile” had come to mean any vegetable oil-based soap, versus animal (tallow) fat-based soap.
“Pure-Castile” is now also your guarantee that what you are using is a real ecological and simple soap, not a complex blend of detergents with a higher ecological impact due to the waste stream during manufacture and slower biodegradability. Unfortunately, many synthetic detergent blends are deceptively labeled as “Liquid Soap” even when they contain absolutely no soap whatsoever.
Dr Bronner’s soaps are 100% true pure-castile soaps. The high foaming lather of these soaps is from their high coconut oil content, which makes a more luxurious and rich lather than any detergent can ever create. The ingredients are certified organic, fair trade and 100% vegan using no detergents, foaming agents or animal testing. They are packaged using 100% post-consumer recycled plastic.
Dr Bronner’s liquid castile soaps are available in 8 different scents: Rose, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Citrus, Almond, Lavender, Peppermint, and Baby Mild (unscented).
Ingredients: Water, Saponified Organic Coconut and Olive Oils (retaining natural glycerin content), Organic Hemp Seed Oil, Organic Jojoba Seed Oil, Citric Acid, Vitamin E, may also contain organic essential oils.
