favorite bath and body products- #4


dr. bronner's is my all time favorite body product company, and i pretty much love everything they make. they have amazing principles (for the corporate world) and use the purest of ingredients. check out the ingredients for the shave gel:

Organic Shikakai Extract (Organic Sucrose*, Organic White Grape Juice, Organic Shikakai Powder), Saponified Organic Coconut* & Olive* Oils (with retained Organic Glycerin), Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Zea Mays Starch, Organic Lavender Oil, Citric Acid, Vitamin E

i seriously have 7 of those ingredients in my kitchen pantry right now!

this product works wonderfully. it isn't thick and fluffy, so that takes some getting used to. it has more of a thick soap consistency- so it's a little runny going on. my husband doesn't like using it for his face because of this, but i love it! i have tried the lavender and the unscented and like them both. the great thing about the unscented is that they don't add any masking chemicals to make it "unscented"- it just is what it says it is.

ah yes, we, too, love dr. bronners. we've used it since the early-ish days, when there was just one variety. GREAT for camping.

Love Dr. Bronners! I've never tried their shave gel, so I'm going to have get that next go round! I've loved using all of their soaps and lotions!

The bottle is quite interesting to read too as you are lathering up. I haven't quite figured Ole' Dr. B out yet. But, I like his products:)

Can you explain the writing on the bottle? I use the products because I like how they work, but the bottle creeps me out. Probably more than it should.
