Very large bottle, create scent but not overpowering, if you're used to sudsy/bubbly soaps this is a bit different but still works wonderfully.

The perfect soap

I finally found the perfect soap. I plan on using it on my baby and toddler, too. It's gentle and smells good, but next time I will try a different scent to see which one I like best. I just wish it had a pump dispenser.

- Kristin

Great Smell

This soap had a great smell and consistency however it's not very soapy.

- kris


I use it for hand soap and it Smells good!

- Corinna

Did I get a bum batch?

The scent is quite nice, but very mild. One reviewer indicated that a little goes a long way, but I have found the opposite to be true. I bought this for use in the bath for my two kids. They have to use multiple pumps just to work up a later on their short hair. With all of the other glowing reviews, I'm wondering if I ended up with a bad batch.

- Julie

Finally found a pure safe soap!

It's amazing how many soaps sneak in toxics or unsafe chemicals. This soap smells really great, and preforms perfectly with cleansing moisturize lather.

- Ellen

Best new product find!

I was skeptical about this product at first. So glad I bought it! It acts like a liquid castile soap, but way better and more softening from the shea butter. You can use it as soap, shampoo, body wash and/or a household cleaner, too. The scent is an amazing, zingy, bright citrus that my husband and friends just love! This would even make a great gift! Can't wait to try the other scents!

- Krista

Family Friendly

This soap is family friendly if ever a soap was. I can use it on my children and myself and my wife absolutely loves it. I enjoy the scent myself and how clean I feel after my shower each day. I love it's chemical free and safe on all skin types.

- Nick Ramsey

Smells amazing

I love this Black Soap-I use it for everything when I shower. It is great for shampoo and body wash. I even use it to wash my face in the shower. It smells so good I enjoy the scent all day long. Such a great soap!

- B. Hanson

Great for sensitive areas

I have only used the Lavender Ylang Ylang scent, but this soap is amazing for sensitive areas and I use it as my shampoo too!

- Cynthia

This stuff is amazing!

I love this stuff! My entire family uses this product (including my 1 month old baby). It leaves you feeling fresh and clean, with a pleasant scent. No harsh chemicals for my baby's delicate skin, and does not interfere with my intimate areas. Will definitely recommend!

- Natural_empress

i miss my shower

i love the product. i love the smell. i hate being done with my shower because its like a mini vacay each morning!
its sultry and thick, great for bubble baths, and smells great!
i like the peppermint too - but - this one is my fave.

- jambot

Love this soap

I've been using this soap for 3 weeks. My skin is so soft, and moisturized. I don't even need to use a moisturizer. The smell is awesome. I will definitely buy again.

- Debra

great for bathroom soap dispenser

I got this to use in the soap dispenser because Dr. Bronner's, as much as I love that product, gums up the dispenser. This does not do that, and it works great. I'm always looking for a non-chemical liquid soap, and I think I've found it!

- Tracy

Wonderful soap

My husband and I have been using this soap for a couple years now. It smells wonderful is made a great ingredients and most importantly works great on my husband's sensitive skin. The soap is concentrated so a little goes a long way.

- Falon

A perfect all-in-one

You can't go wrong with this all-in-one soap. It smells wonderful and is great for shaving and as a body wash. There are so many more uses I have yet to explore!

Love that it's made with basic, fair trade ingredients and no gross chemicals.
