Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap – The One Habit To Keep For Beautiful Skin

Young woman with radiance skinFor most people, the basic skin care mantra consists of cleanse, tone, and moisturize. But today’s highly commercialized and advertising-bombarded culture may find you scrambling and confused over a variety of synthetic chemical-based beauty products. Worse, it could even find your way off your budget. Is this really necessary? You ask. Come to think of it, the generations gone-by never had to cleanse-tone- and-moisturize. They only kept one habit for beautiful skin – Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap.

 150 years of good, old-fashioned and authentic soap making tradition finds its way in every bottle or bar of Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap. Castile is the name people from English-speaking countries used to call soap made out of olive oil. The name originates from the Castile region of Spain. Thus, with every bottle or bar of Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap, you can expect to luxuriate in a bath made of only the purest ingredients from nature.  What Does “All-One Hemp” Mean In Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap?

There’s an interesting history behind Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap that can be gleaned from its name.

First, Pure-Castile means the soap is made of only organic olive oil and plant-based oils like jojoba and avocado.

Next, let’s turn to “All-One Hemp.” For years, the soap included an undisclosed ingredient – caramel coloring. In 1999, David Bronner, the grandson of Emanuel Bronner, the soapmaster who brought the soap from Germany to the United States in mid-1900s, thought it was unacceptable to keep the coloring and not declare it in the label. On the other hand, David Bronner also thought including an unnecessary ingredient might turn away diehard fans of what (since then) was already the famous “pure soap.” David Bronner then decided to pull out the caramel coloring and in its place, and put something better— the Hemp Oil, which creates a smoother lather, and a better after-bath feel. Thus, the label.  

Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap Is The Pure Soap

While the personal care industry explodes with advertising and commercials, it is surprising that Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap, which in 2011 reached a sale of $44 Million, does not do one bit of advertising.

David Bronner says that the money they would spend advertising Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap, they would use for community activism.

Since it was hard to find organic farms that practiced Fair Trade principles among its workers in all the levels of the supply chain, the Bronners decided to set up their own organic farming, Fair Trade farms. Today, there are coconut workers in Sri Lanka, palm oil workers in Ghana, peppermint oil farmers and workers in India. Topping these off, Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile soap makes use of organic olive oil farmed and harvested by farmers in the West Bank and Israel, allowing for a peaceful and cooperative Israeli-Palestinian co-existence.

Activism Aside – Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap Is The True Soap

Within the world of soaps, there are varying levels of purity that creates the strata amidst many soap brands. Some mass-produced soaps have strong detergent, while others use animal fat (beef far, pig lard, or mutton fat). Pure plant-based soaps use oils from olive, coconut, and palm oil do not contain animal fats at all.

Indeed, Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap, along with its long history and tradition in soap making, is a pure soap.
