I am a soldier serving in Iraq, where as you may know, it gets pretty hot here. After a full day out in the desert sun in all of my gear, I find myself dreaming of the moment when I can get in the shower and cool off with Dr. Bronner's soap. It works great. Lathers great, and leaves me feeling cleaner than chemical soaps, not to mention the fact that it feels very cool and tingly. Although I am military, which may go against what Dr. Bronner's philosophy suggests, I am a country boy who loves the outdoors, and the conservation and protection of our environment. I will always choose products made in America so as to support the businesses of my fellow Americans, and will always choose organic items over those items which use ingredients that I can't pronounce, or in which animals are senselessly wasted.
I suggest you use this product for all the right reasons.

It comes in funky orange packaging, has a strong medicinal smell, but man ..it's the best soap I've ever used!

Previous to switching to Dr. Bronner's, I was using some run of the mill Sam's Club body wash. I had problems with back acnie, oil buildup (especially around the nose) and fungus (itching).

I remember washing with it for the first time, not knowing what to expect (if anything). After rising off, I actually felt clean! Those oily areas were no longer oily. Drying off, my skin felt tighter and smoother. As time went on, I noticed that a certain area was a lot less itchy and irritated. My backnie problem went from multiple large sores to one small one at the moment. Same with the face zits are a lot less common and generally smaller. I also had a problem with facial hair becoming partially ingrown, resulting in either zits or inflammation. It was so bad that they would catch my electric razor and start bleeding every time I shaved. Today, I can usually shave without bleeding! I used to have bad chlorine itch after swimming. After washing off with this, I had no problems with chlorine itch.
There are things it's not good for, though. First, it'll strip every bit of oil and crud right out of your hair. Mine becomes a straw-textured, fluffy mess if I just use Bronner's. About once a week, I'll wash my hair with it, then use my normal shampoo/conditioner - this prevents product buildup. My hair feels softer and more manageable after doing this.

I would also advise against using it as a hand soap. After multiple uses per day, my hands started peeling because they got so dried out. Oh... and keep it away from the eyes. It really stings.

I ran out of this stuff over Christmas break and couldn't find it locally, so I switched back to the body wash. Sure enough, the backnie returned, along with the fungus and everything else.

What makes it so special anyway?
First, the formulation used is simply effective - no filler, no scents, just good soap. Second and most important is the Tea Tree Oil, which is a really good natural antiseptic. This explains its effectiveness with acne, fungus and the like. Secondly, it's very anti-inflammatory, hence the "skin tightening" effect.

My Grandmother loves this soap. It cleared up her psoriasis after about 2-months of using it.

I love the scent of almond, and this soap has a wonderful, lightly sweet almond scent. The ingredients are all natural, no man-made chemicals, no animal testing, and organic too! I love the way my skin feels after wahing with this soap, squeaky-clean. I also love that it will not leave a nasty soap scum on my shower, bathtub or sink. I am usually VERY particular about the shampoo I use, but I tried this soap out on my hair too, just for the heck of it. My naturally curly hair needs some form of conditioner or it gets frizzy - so I follwed up with my usual leave-in anti-friz product and my hair looked great. It didn't leave my hair feeling dry, or heavy, but instead it felt light and bouncy, and my curls seemed to have a better definition. So, now I soap up from head to toe with Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap, and I feel good about my choice.

I love this stuff. I use it as a shampoo, and I don't even have to use conditioner anymore. It gives my hair more body, and I like that I can use one bar of soap for my hair and my body. It saves me a lot of money, and lasts a really long time. The smell is pretty goodm but not overpowering. I've been reading that commercial shampoos have a lot of nasty ingredients in them, so I feel a lot safer putting this stuff on my body. I've also heard that castille soaps like this are great for backpacking, and I'm looking forward to replacing my nasty camp soap with this stuff!

All of the castile soaps are great especially this one. It smells good, and lathers better than any other soap I have used.

This review is about the Rose scent

The soap itself is great, but to me the rose scent does not smell like roses. It might as well be called Flowers. I was hoping it would smell like rose water, but it is not distinctive. Wish I had know that before I ordered.

We are just making the move from Dove soap to castile soaps. Dr. Bronners tea tree is the first we've tried. I was concerned about lather especially because we have hard water, but it lathers really well. I was impressed at how clean my skin felt afterward. My children have really dry skin and though they still need lotion there is still a difference in the way there skin feels after a week. We seem to be using it a little faster than we use Dove (5 people @ 1 bath per day). We started a new bar after 6 days and at 3 bucks a pop it may get a little more expensive than we can do for the long haul.

Excellent soap. Great lathering, wonderful scent and ingredients you can feel good about. I'm truly clean when I step out of the shower, but not dry. $3 a bar at Trader Joe's.
