You’ve seen it on the shelves in grocery stores and drug stores where ever you are, but did you know that this is more than a soap company? Dr. Bronner’s is on a mission to change the world. In their words “Dr. Bronner’s is a family business committed to honoring the vision of our founder Dr. E.H. Bronner by making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, and by dedicating our profits to help make a better world.” Every single one of their products is made with organic and fair trade ingredients, are biodegradable, and packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. There are no harsh detergents or synthetic preservatives and all of their products are vegan and cruelty-free. Now that’s a company I can get behind! I love everything they stand for, the products they make, and the mission they are on.
This company was sweet enough to send me some products to try and asked if I would share my thoughts. I have used the products before and have always loved them, but had never tried a single one that they sent and was excited to do so.
First in line is the 18-in-1 Hemp Almond Pure-Castile Soap. This really is the all- in- one soap. It can be used for most household needs and works wonderfully! The other night I took a bath and decided to use some for a bit of bubbles and I even washed my hair with it. The directions on the back tell you how much to use for each different application. It is even safe enough to use on pets so my dog Tootsie will be getting a bath with it today! I like the smell of the Hemp Almond but if you are more of a fruity/ floral scent person, you may want to go with something like the Hemp Rose or the Hemp Citrus. Overall, this product really is “All-One”.
Next is the Anise All-One Toothpaste. If you are accustomed to using commercial toothpaste that is full of sugar and extra ingredients, it might take you a day or two to get used to this toothpaste. It is low-foaming and has no artificial colors flavors or foaming agents. When I look for a good, natural toothpaste, I look for one that leaves my mouth feeling squeaky clean and this one does just that. There are three flavors of this product, I’ve only tried the Anise but I really enjoy it.
Here comes one of my favorites, the Lavender Organic Shaving Soap. I use this product every single day! As a plant-based, natural products user I don’t typically use shaving cream because there are very few on the market that I care to use but this one meets all of my requirements plus more. The combination of ingredients used to make this shaving soap creates a caramel color and a rich texture. It does not foam up much but certainly gets the job done when trying to achieve a clean, close shave. Be sure to shake this product or knead the bottle well prior to using because it could come out a bit more liquid-y and less incorporated if not. This is by far my favorite shaving soap, a little bit goes a long way and it smells wonderful.
Lastly is the ever popular Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. This is another product that I use on a daily basis all over the house. Dr. Bronner’s coconut oil is especially great because it is organic and created in a manner that preserves all of its nutrients. I use the oil as a lotion after a hot shower, to make popcorn and a lot of other dishes in the kitchen, and as a hair conditioner.
The day that I received the box in the mail filled with Dr. Bronner’s products, I was like a child on Christmas. I am especially passionate about using products that are great for the environment and our bodies and these are exactly that. I feel safe knowing that what I am using around my house is doing everyone a little bit of good and isn’t just serving its simple sole purpose. We have to work together to create happy healthy hearts, bodies, and minds and Dr. Bronner’s is a company that is getting one step closer to showing the world how to do so. “Absolute cleanliness is Godliness!”
