Dr. Bronner's Magic Pure-Castile Bar Soap Organic Citrus Orange is made by saponifying a fat or oil with an alkali. A fat or oil is a triglyceride, which means that three fatty acids of various carbon lengths are attached to a glycerine backbone. The alkali is either sodium (for bars) or potassium (for liquids) hydroxide, made by running electricity through salt water. The saponification process is a simple one-step reaction with no waste generated: the glycerine is split off from the fatty acids, and the fatty acids combine with the sodium or potassium to form soap, while the hydroxide forms water. The result is soap, glycerin and water (no alkali remains in our soaps).
- Unlike most commercial soap-makers who distill the glycerin out of their soaps to sell separately, they retain it in our soaps for its superb moisturizing qualities.
- They superfat their soaps with organic hemp and jojoba oils for a milder, smoother lather.
- They use natural plant-derived vitamin E and citric acid to protect freshness.
- They do not add any chelating agents, dyes, whiteners or synthetic fragrances.
- They use pure and powerful high-quality certified organic essential oils.
- Their liquid soaps are 3 times more concentrated than most so-called liquid soaps on the market, and are only a few percent away from being a solid, which ecologically saves on packaging materials.
- Their new plastic cylinder bottles are made from 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic.
- Their soaps are a superb value, costing less than less-concentrated, inferior detergent body-wash liquid soaps.
- Their soaps are most popular for at-home washing, but they also are the soap of choice for many campers and hikers, as they are so biodegradable and nature-friendly.
