Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Pure-Castile Soap has our most controversial label, as it includes Dr. Bronner's ecstatic love poetry. When the Almond-Castile label is rhythmically recited while bathing and breathing in the almond-scented steam-misted waters of the inner bath-tub sanctum, people enter deep, dreamy, mystical trance states of super-sensuous luxuriousness and consciousness, and emerge from their bath as if from the Fountain of Life--reborn, renewed, refreshed and ready to help unite the human race! All-One! All One!Supermild Castile has outstanding water softening and cleansing powers, preferable to harsh soap & defattening synthetics. It does not cut dirt, but dissolves it. It is the mildest, most pleasant soap you have ever used.Soap is made by saponifying a fat or oil with a strong alkali. A fat or oil is a triglyceride, which means that three fatty acids of various carbon lengths are attached to a glycerine backbone. The strong alkali is either sodium (for bars) or potassium (for liquids) hydroxide. The saponification process is a simple one-step reaction with no waste generated: the glycerine is split off from the fatty acids, and the fatty acids combine with the sodium or potassium to form soap, while the hydroxide forms water. The result is soap, glycerin and water (no alkali remains). Quality soap-making consists in great part in choosing the right proportions of the right oils with their different fatty acids. Most commercial soaps skimp on quality because of

I simple love this product! This peppermint Castile oil, is truly great for just about any hair type and always leaves my hair and my family's hair, cool and squeaky clean! The peppermint is really strong, and a little goes a very long way.

It is simply a good liquid soap
It can be used for multiple purposes but I just shower with it and use it as a hand soap in the bathroom. It's super fresh and gentle. Love it. Can be diluted.

This is my absolute favorite soap and only soap I will use now. I've tried some of the other scents, and hands down the peppermint is the best. It's nice and invigorating and leaves just a slight cool tingly clean feeling. I also have very sensitive skin so a lot of other soaps, especially scented ones can irritate me. Dr. Bronner's doesn't though, and I find I don't need to use moisturizer...

This is my absolute favorite soap and only soap I will use now. I've tried some of the other scents, and hands down the peppermint is the best. It's nice and invigorating and leaves just a slight cool tingly clean feeling. I also have very sensitive skin so a lot of other soaps, especially scented ones can irritate me. Dr. Bronner's doesn't though, and I find I don't need to use moisturizer anymore either because it doesn't dry me out. I've been using it for gift ideas as well. Everyone loves it.
