Scented with pure lavender and lavandin oils to calm the mind and soothe the body! Dr. Bronner's Lavender Pure-Castile Bar Soap is made with certified fair trade ingredients and organic U.S.-grown hemp seed oil for a soft, smooth lather that won't dry your skin. Biodegradable in a 100% post-consumer recycled wrapper.
In earlier centuries, an all-vegetable-based soap was made in the Castile region of Spain from local olive oil. By the turn of this century, “Castile” had come to mean any vegetable oil-based soap, as distinct from animal (tallow) fat-based soap. “Pure-Castile” is now also your guarantee that what you are using is a genuinely ecological and simple soap – not a complex blend of detergents with higher ecological impact and slower biodegradability. Unfortunately, many synthetic detergent blends are deceptively labeled as “liquid soap” despite the fact that they contain absolutely no real soap whatsoever.
Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid and Bar Soaps are both completely vegetable oil-based. The difference between the liquid and bar soaps is that the liquid soaps use potassium hydroxide to saponify the vegetable oils, while the hard bar soaps use sodium hydroxide instead.
