I think it takes a few tries to turn over to this soap if one is used to chemical concoctions. The Bronner's sister has blog about her conversion from conventional chemical shampoos and it took her a couple of weeks to notice the difference. She used the hair conditioner and one of the regular soaps.

It's really about expectations.

My dog's fur is much softer than when using traditional pet shampoo.

I use it daily in the shower and have no issues with lathering, scent, or skin drying.

The point here, is to reduce chemicals on my body, so I will continue to use this.

I did by the Sal Suds for Laundry from the main Dr Bronner site. 1 Tbsp for an HE washer is sufficient.

The Sal Suds and the original soap are all purpose, so as soon as I run out of chemical stuff, I'll start using these for cleaning floors, blinds, wood work and such.

It's Paraben free and a few other chemicals are missing. The price is good as it can be diluted and will last forever.

I will warn you though, that it does seems to dry on the dispensers a bit more quickly than conventional chemical based soaps. That is just a simple swipe of a cloth to clean though.

I read somewhere, that the Tea tree oil is supposed to be an pretty good anti-fungal, anti-bacterial soap replacement.

In the bottle it smells delicious. Unfortunately as soon as I started to wash myself with it the smell made me nauseous. So I now use it as a laundry detergent and to clean the pet cages. But it leaves a film on the pet cages. So I will not buy again. I would not recommend this to anyone. It is drying and leaves a gross film on your skin.

Try the peppermint one instead.

Dr. Bronner's killed my perm

Pros

  • Biodegradable for camping

Cons

  • Difficult To Use
  • Impossible to comb hair
  • Sticky Residue
  • Unattractive Packaging

Best Uses

  • Camping if required

Comments about Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Hemp Pure-Castile Soap, Almond, 16 fl oz:

Only bought this because it was the only allowed shampoo during a 5-day camping trip. On first use, it was impossible to rinse out and left a horrible gummy residue on my permed, colored hair. I really thought I had ruined my perm for good. Awful. Next time I'll just rinse my hair with water and forego the shampoo completely, if this is all that's permitted.

LOVE the smell of this product. I like Dr Bronner's soaps, but wanted something besides the peppermint (all I can find in the local stores) so I tried this - Almond - I will buy it again. I love it.
Use it for body care mostly, but plan to use his soaps for home care too.

            I purchased Dr. Bronner's almond soap and peppermint soap to use in a 'recipe' to make natural household cleaners. The bottle is worth the money. The consistency is thin and you dont need much. The almond has a very pleasant scent, but I find the peppermint much more refreshing, for cleaning around the house and for use in the shower. (Dr. Bronner also makes a Peppermint Organic Lotion for about [$], which is not offered by drugstore.com. but would be a great compliment to the peppermint soap.)

            We love this soap. Even use it on the kids (and handwash sweaters!). Find that our skin is much less dry when we use it. Packaging isn't pretty (and seems preachy, but I think that's wallpaper). Love that it's eco and animal friendly. Simple, pure and lovely stuff.

            Comments about Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Hemp Pure-Castile Soap, Almond, 16 fl oz:

            I've always been quite fond of Dr. Bronners soap. The peppermint is a littl too bracing for me, but this is just about perfect. The almond scent is noticable, but withou tbeing cloyingly marzipan sweet. It's sticks around on the skin *very* lightly after the shower for a couple of hours.

            I've got some pretty intense allergies to many artifical scents, and this stuff doesn't trigger any of them.

            You can dilute this product by about half with plain old water, and it's just about right, strength-wise.

            If you're at all prone to dry skin, find a lotion you're find of to use while your skin is still damp. You'll want it. This soap has a tendancy to strip all the oil if can find right out of your skin. The only other con I can think of for this product is, if you have a slow drain, it leaves fierce ring around the tub. It's easy to get rid of, but, it looks awful at first glance.

            Take little bottles of this stuff backpacking/camping! It's completely biodegradable, so if you have to wash up in a river, youcan do so without worrying too much about what you might be killing downstream.

            Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Hemp Pure-Castile Soap

             –  Could there really be that many uses for Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Hemp Pure-Castile Soap? Its fans – and there are many – have come up with far, far more, from washing the face, body, hands and even hair to the benefits of aromatherapy. The secret is right on the label: the purity of the ingredients. Certified organic by the USDA, the soap from Dr. Bronner's is also pure vegan, with no animal products included (and no animal testing on any of their products, either). As a castile soap, it is olive oil-based – not made with tallow and certainly not containing harsh chemical detergents – to be kind and gentle on the skin. The imported hemp seed oil also helps alleviate dryness; it is very effective in helping the skin maintain a healthy moisture balance. No matter what use you decide to put it to, it's a soap bar you can have faith in.

            A 150-Year Tradition



            The Bonner family can trace its soap-making roots to 1858 in Germany, but it wasn't until 1929 that Emmanuel Bonner came to the United States. Using time-honored methods, this third-generation master soap-maker founded his company with commitments to quality and responsibility to its customers. The formula of the castile soap finds it origins in the 12th century Castile region of Spain, where the olive oil-based soap first began to be produced. This traditional soap has been adapted to modern needs with the addition of rich, moisturizing coconut oil and the protecting benefits of hemp oil (processed to be free of its psychoactive compounds).
