Unscented Baby-Mild Hemp Pure-Castile Soap

I chose the unscented soap from Dr. Bronner's because my skin is very reactive and I just don't feel like taking chances with scented products.

I was using Dr. Bronner's Unscented Baby-Mild Hemp Pure-Castile Soap as a shampoo up until recently. (I'm now using Terressentials hair wash, click to see my review.) I still use it as a body wash and will probably use it in an emergency if I run out of Terressentials.

It does contain Potassium Hydroxide which is inorganic but the company says "None remains after saponifying oils into soap and glycerin". Is this okay? I'm not quite sure. There aren't many other alternatives for my skin.

It's very thin in consistency but you can feels how concentrated it is when you rub it between your fingers.

I put about a tablespoon in a small container and diluted it with water. Then I used it as I would with any other body wash. I use a container because if I'm in a hurry and forget, tons of the soap will go flying out and down the drain. (I hate waste, of any kind.)

Diluted in a ceramic container.

It soaps up really well, which I wasn't really expecting but that's okay. I personally don't need suds in my products but other people don't feel as though they're not getting clean unless they see suds. There's no odour, no feeling of residue. My skin feels and smells clean after I use it.

Dr.Bronner's is a certified Fair trade and USDA organic company.

Price for 16 oz bottle: $10.49 USD. Prices may vary by country.

I give Dr. Bronner's Unscented Baby-Mild Hemp Pure-Castile Soap 4 out of 5. (Not a paid review.)
