Dr. Bronner’s is not just a company with a product, but instead a story of man and his family who happen to have a passion for soap and love. It’s not just a soap though, it’s an amazing 18 uses in 1 product, from cleaning your vegetables to dishes and laundry. It’s strong peppermint and hemp oil combine for a potent and refreshing miracle solution. In fact, Dr. Bronners Hemp All-in-One Soap can be used for the following:
- Dog bath soap
- Clean fruits and vegetables
- Bug spray for plants
- Shaving face, underarm, and legs
- All purpose cleaner
- Floor cleaner
But wait! That’s not all! Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Hemp Soap gives you so much more. One of the first things that people notice is the label. It has writing ALL over it! Upon closer inspection, you’ll find that the bottle has quotes and snippets of knowledge about love, god, and life. It will take you a full shower to read it, and I guarantee you will be a fan of it, as it not only is entertaining for those boring showers, but also positive and inspirational.
The text on the bottle comes from the insights of the founder of Dr. Bronners soaps, Emanuel Theodore Bronner. Emanuel was in his families 3rd generation of soapmaking. His grandchildren are still directly involved in running the business, with his grandson David Bronner as CEO. Emanuel Heilbronn was born in Germany, to the Heilbronner family of soap makers. He came to the U.S. in 1929, and became a citizen in 1936. He started making his castile soaps at home, and was known for his trademark labels we mentioned above. They are sources from Jewish and Christian religious literature, but also famous writers such as Rudyard Kipling and Thomas Paine. Emanuel referred to his label text as the “Moral ABC” and “All-One-God-Faith” You can read the Dr. Bronner’s famous label yourself here.
About the Peppermint Hemp Soap
It sounds ridiculous to call it a wonder product, but truthfully, that’s how I feel about this soap. I’ve used it (along with the lavender variety) for years now, and can’t recommend this unique company enough. Let’s get to the nitty gritty though, starting with ingredients:
Ingredients (from official website): Water, Organic Coconut Oil*, Potassium Hydroxide**, Organic Palm Kernel Oil*, Organic Olive Oil*, Mentha Arvensis, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Mentha Piperita, Citric Acid, Tocopherol
*CERTIFIED FAIR TRADE INGREDIENTS
**None remains after saponifying oils into soap & glycerin.
Official product description: Our most popular scent & with a peppermint burst so pure it tingles! Scented with organic peppermint oil to cool skin, clear sinuses and sharpen mind. Our Peppermint Pure-Castile Liquid Soap is concentrated, biodegradable, versatile and effective. Made with organic and certified fair trade ingredients, packaged in a 100% post-consumer recycled bottle. All-One!
The ingredients are short, simple, and if you Google them, you’ll find they are relatively harmless. Limited chemicals and organic ingredients when possible, my personal favorite! The coconut and olive oil helps to keep your skin smooth, while the hemp and jojoba provide vital minerals and vitamins. Caution: the peppermint variety is very strong and potent, so water down when using on your privates or on places like your armpits, it has a slight burn if you use it straight up. The lavender and other varieties do not have this issue.
