Interesting. Maybe if you decant it into a glass bottle (I know, not desirable in the shower)? Or maybe decant most of it into a glass bottle with a screw top for storage and dispense a few days/weeks worth into a plastic bottle for shower use? That's all I got.

I saw a full shelf of it at whole foods yesterday.

Who cares? It's not like most people don't literally brush their teeth with the stuff every day.

I got my first bottle of the hemp oil peppermint liquid soap. First things first, my stinky Beagle Betsy gets a bath in it.

I'll let you know how it goes.

The Dr. Bronner's company cared enough to say in their FAQ that their product absolutely does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate which means that a number of customers cared enough to ask about it.

Switch back, and within a few months the scum forms again.

It's no big deal, really, easy to get rid of with Bon Ami or similar powdered cleanser... but why only with Dr. Bronner's?

I've by and large stopped using it just because of that. I'm lazy =/
Never, been using this brand for years.

BTW, handwashing wool & cashmere sweaters using Dr Bronner's leaves them so soft (and clean).

Yup, always a lot at WF. Amazon too. I usually just add it to my monthly cleaning/personal care shipment from Grove Collaborative when I start to run low. They carry quite a few products from that line https://www.grove.co/catalog/?q=bronner%27s I love the sugar soap and all-purpose cleaner too. Haven't tried their toothpaste but the cinnamon looks good.

I love Dr Bronner's peppermint soap.
I'm surprised that everyone here seems to like it though, as it is very strong. I shower with it once or twice a week as a treat. I feel that it dries my skin out if i use it everyday. I have kinda greasy skin. I imagine i wouldn't like it if i had dry skin.

I heard it feels absolutely AMAZING if you're on ecstasy. Super tingly! If you're into that kinda thing, i guess.

Thanks for the tip! Always looking for good wool-wash products; I use Dr B liquid soap for handwashing but never thought to try it on garments.
