About This Brand

What is put on the outside of our bodies is just as important as what is put inside of them. Many personal care items such as soaps, lotions, shampoos, and conditioners, are made with harsh chemicals like sulfates and parabens that can be absorbed through the skin and cause endocrine disruption. Luckily, Dr. Bronner’s is a safe, organic brand that provides a number of quality personal care products, all without those harsh chemicals. Dr. Bronner’s legacy Dr. Bronner’s has a long history dating all the way back to 1858 when a German-Jewish family began mastering the craft of soap making. It wasn’t until 1908, however, that they began formally selling their soaps in small batches. Fast forward 20 years later to 1928, and Emmanuel Bronner (third generation master soapmaker) brought his family’s soap recipes to the United States where he launched Dr. Bronner’s. He began by making his soaps at home and packaging them with positive messages to promote inclusion and happiness. By...

Why You’ll Love Organic Peppermint Castile Bar Soap

Minty fresh is not just a saying for good breath. It can also apply to the rest of your body when you use a product like Dr. Bronner's Organic Peppermint Castile Bar Soap. The family brand, around since 1858, has long used peppermint oil for its natural refreshing properties—and in the process, it’s become one of their most popular scents.

Using this bar soap for your body, face, and hair can also have other benefits besides just cleansing. Inhaling the rich peppermint scent has been shown to cool the skin, clear sinuses, and sharpen the mind.

Dr. Bronner's Organic Peppermint Castile Bar Soap is made from pure oils, also including hemp, coconut, palm, olive, and jojoba, that together work into a soft lather to nourish the skin instead of drying it out like other chemical-laden cleansers. It’s also free of GMOs and artificial coloring and is completely vegan. That’s because, unlike many soaps that use animal fats to make their products, hemp-based soaps are made from the oil of hemp seeds, which are not an animal by-product and safe for vegans to use.

The wrapper is also good for the earth, made with 100 percent biodegradable materials and wrapped in recycled goods.

The other oils in Dr. Bronner’s Organic Peppermint Castile Bar Soap

Beyond organic peppermint oil, the top ingredients in this moisturizing soap include organic hemp oil, organic coconut oil, and organic olive oil, all with their own powerful benefits for health and beauty.

Benefits of hemp oil

Hemp has been long been regarded for its health benefits and sustainability, but has only recently been used in the production of market goods as consumers start to understand the plant better. Hemp oil is created from hemp seeds that are rich in vitamins and minerals. They also contain protein and helpful omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and are a good source of fiber. Because of the numerous positive attributes, here are just some of the health benefits you’ll find with hemp oil products.

Skin rejuvenation: Hemp oil is rich in both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. This creates a composition that is quite similar to skin lipids. As a result, hemp oil products make excellent moisturizers and—because they’re made from natural ingredients—are far better alternatives to chemical-based products. This makes hemp oil soap good for reducing skin damage and preventing dehydrated skin and nails as well as preventing wrinkles. The body's skin elasticity will increase, allowing for a greater amount of water retention in the tissues.

Prevention of skin disorders: Hemp oil can help with two common skin problems—psoriasis (rough patches of itchy skin) and varicose veins, the thick visible veins that can cause related health problems. Because hemp oil contains a wealth of omega-6’s, the extra moisturization will improve skin’s hydration and oxygenation to prevent psoriasis. Varicose veins are also helped by hemp’s natural blood thinning properties, which can reduce the chances of blood clots, too.

Scalp health: Hemp oil is often used in shampoos and conditioners due to its many beneficial properties for the scalp. When the scalp absorbs the oil, it also absorbs the healthy omegas, thus improving blood circulation. This strengthens follicles and thickens the texture of your hair and will help to prevent hair loss down the road.

Benefits of coconut oil

Organic coconut oil is one of the main ingredients in many beauty products on the market today, including Dr. Bronner's Organic Peppermint Castile Bar Soap, and for good reason since it has many healthy skin benefits.

Fights bacteria: Because coconut oil has many powerful antimicrobial properties, it’s an effective way to fight any bacteria lingering on your skin. Studies have shown it is useful in combatting strains that often lead to staph infections, the gastrointestinal disorder C. diff, candida, and other fungal infections.

Effective makeup remover: The antimicrobial properties also make coconut oil an effective way to remove makeup, dirt, and oil from your skin after a long day and keep your pores clear overnight.

Natural moisturizer: Coconuts contain a good amount of vitamin E, which hydrates the skin and will keep it moisturized well after application.

Reduces scarring: Organic coconut oil has been shown to help diminish the look of scars, but first ask your doctor or dermatologist if it is right for you.

Benefits of olive oil

Olive oil has far more uses than just a simple cooking ingredient. When used in beauty products, it has a variety of helpful applications, too.

Makeup remover: Like coconut oil, olive oil is also an effective way to remove makeup and clean pores at the end of the day, especially when using a balancing cleanser like Dr. Bronner’s. Because your skin has oils already, cleansing with one helps to ensure you are not stripping your skin of its natural state. Plus, olive oil is gentle enough for use on all skin types.

Makeup brush cleaner: Olive oil also makes a great makeup brush cleaner, both removing residue and naturally moisturizing the bristles so your brushes actually last longer. Plan to clean your set at least once a month and let air dry for the best results.

Shaving cream: The moisturizing properties in oils, especially olive oil, provider a barrier for the skin, which can help eliminate nicks, bumps, and razor burn when shaving.

Eczema relief: Olive oil has been a go-to remedy for those with eczema since it’s effective at penetrating the deep layers of skin and curing dry patches from the inside out.

More about Dr. Bronner’s

Dr. Bronner’s is one of the oldest soap makers, around since 1858 and today run by the fifth generation of the Bronner family. In 1929, Emanuel Bronner brought his formulas from Old World Europe to America, and by the 1960s, the high-quality liquid and bar soaps were the number-one natural brand sold in all of North America. This was sparked by the ecological quality and Emanuel Bronner’s message of unity across religious and ethnic divides, which led to the company’s motto, “All-One.” Today, that spirit continues with creating certified organic and fair trade personal care products that continue the time-honored simplicity that has always been at the heart of Dr. Bronner’s.

Great price!

I've been using this soap for two years, and will never go back. The Thrive price is cheaper than I can get it on sale from other stores!

- Janet

Perfect soap

Dr Bronner's Peppermint Soap is the best scent they have I believe. The peppermint is perfectly peppermint-y without being overpowering and you can use it on your face too with no problems. It's the only soap my husband will use now. I converted him from a Dial (yuck!) user years ago and he'll never go back.

- Kristin


I always have this on stock. My suggestion to make it last longer is to cut the bar into two or three pieces! I found out this makes the product last a lot longer. This is a great product

- Marley

Soft skin

I really enjoy the up lifting feeling you get from this soap, and my skin is beginning to feel smooth as silk. Everyone should give it a try.

One of my favorite soaps!

I always love this soap - so fresh and tingly, and great quality! It also lasts a long time. Thrive has better prices on it than most of my local stores.

- Rose

Like the Peppermint

I bought this soap for the first time and it's a NICE soap. If you like the feeling of peppermint on your skin in the shower, then you will definitely love this soap. The peppermint doen't stay after the shower but your result is a smooth and soft skin. I usually had dry skin after using regular commercial supermarket soap, but not anymore. I'm going to try the baby castile soap and buy some more of this one!

- Guadalupe


...and even better at an amazing price!

- Jill

Smells Yummy!

The scent is perfect and it lathers well. I would purchase it again.

Dr. Bonner's Peppermint Soap

My husband loves the peppermint soap. He likes the way it makes his skin tingle. It's the only soap he will use.

First of all, it is so soft and creamy, it feels like you are putting luxurious lotion on. The peppermint scent is so refreshing that it wakes me up in the morning! I just love this soap!

- Alexis


Love the smell , love the way it feels and it lasts a long time !!

This soap is amazing. Makes you feel fresh and alive because of the peppermint. I had problems with dry skin and itching and since using this soap, I no longer have these issues.

- Sherri

This soap is safe, effective & smells amazing. It is all natural ingredients and works better than conventional soap. I use it for bathing & making laundry detergent! Love it!

- Caitlin

- Jill

Fresh scent

Lathers well in hard water leaves a warm glow on the skin.

- Charles Schmitter


Probably my favourite soap, Ever. I Feel so fresh after using it. It's invigorating.

- Allison

So great!!

it still smells nice after many showers! The liquid version is also awesome (I use it highly diluted in water to clean the floor)

- Jocelyn

This is great soap!

I've been using it for months, and I get out the shower feeling nice and clean, and the peppermint tingles for a little while after I dry off.

I had a cold recently, and until then had not used the soap on my face (be careful, it burns from the peppermint oil if it gets in your eyes!). I lathered it up and spread it all around my face, avoiding my eyes, and let it just sit there for a minute or so, then rinsed off. It cleared up my congestion for long enough that falling asleep was much easier!

- Ruben Floyd

Leaves you feeling squeaky clean!

I was driven by the refreshing peppermint smell of this soap. There was a tingly sensation while it was lathering. The odor lingered post shower and my skin felt squeaky clean that it felt dry and slightly irritated.

I can't get enough of the smell so I will keep using and applying heavy lotion after to reduce the dryness.

- Gary Bishop

I love this soap!

This soap is great, it feels amazing and I love the smell. There isn't too much essential oil that will make your skin irritated and it also doesn't leave your skin dry like most commercial soaps. If I had to choose one toiletry to travel with, I would definitely choose this soap!

- R. Huff

Hands down: Best. Soap. Ever.

I use this soap at home, but I do a lot of backpacking and this is the only soap I bring with me. First, it feels great. Especially after a long day of hiking, soaping down with this bar leaves me cool, refreshed, and ready for the next day. It's even mild enough to use in my hair so I can leave the travel-sized shampoos/conditioner at home. Second, this soap actually improves my skin in addition to cleaning it. It's smoother, clearer, and helps with irritation. It must be the essential oils, but it's great for soothing and healing those bug bites faster at the end of the day. Third, it's all natural. Probably another reason why it's been so great for my skin. Fourth, Dr. Bronner's got a great vision. The ingredients are all organic and fair-trade, and the soap is made here in the US. Ethically sourced, environmentally friendly, and made in house? Yes please! I think a lot of businesses could learn from their standards and practices and I'm glad that Thrive Market carries their brand at such competitive prices.

- Corey

My Favorite Shower Soap

This soap is by far my favorite soap for showering. I travel A LOT for business and even take a bar with me on the road. It brings a familiar smell and feel to an unfamiliar location. Great smell and great clean!

The only disadvantage that I see is the foam and lather. It doesn't last long enough and I use it very fast! Maybe 2 weeks after opening the package, I need to buy another.

Would recommend!

- Jerry Anderson


Best price around!

- Andrea I.


This soap smells awesome and is great for your skin. The bathroom smells wonderful too!

- Holly

Just right

I think this soap has just the right amount of peppermint, you smell it and feel it just a little. I've had other soaps that were way more "tingly" than this one. I like the texture of it, it's nice on the skin but doens't get slimy like glycerin soaps.

- Tony L.

Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap

Perfect cleansing bar in the morning with the refreshing peppermint scent. Also great for shaving without drying out your skin. Never tried it on my hair b/c it's color treated but a friend has and approves.

- Dana


This soap feels great on the skin and leaves it feeling soft. I love the hint of peppermint

- Elizabeth

Awesome smell

This soap is not only good for your skin but it has a wonderful smell. It's a great pick me up in the morning shower!

- Tracie

The only soap we use

love Love LOVE this soap for our family. So versatile!

- Al

Great soap, a little intense

The soap is an excellent value, and the smell is delightful. I do find it irritating in sensitive areas, but I've always had that experience with peppermint-scented soaps.

- Becky

Love Dr. Bronner's

I am a huge fan of Dr. Bronner's and was very enthusiastic when I found out that Thrive Market carried their terrific products.

I am not a huge fan of this peppermint bar though. It cleans well and it smells good, but it is not good with my sensitive skin. It sometimes makes me itch, which could only be the peppermint since I don't have this issue with any of their other products.

- Jen Pecor


This is seriously one invigorating bar of soap. It wakes me up and wakes up my skin. It's great at removing the stink of the day. It also removes grime really well. I have a bar in the tub and by the sink. People always compliment me on it when they use my bathroom!

- Kirk D

Super minty

This bar of soap is absolutely the mintiest thing I have ever come across. It's like a burst of fresh peppermint. I wouldn't recommend this to people with sensitive skin, as the peppermint oil can be a bit abrasive.

One whiff of this bar will have you away and moving. My favorite use for it is washing my hair. That fresh scalp tingle lets me know that my hair and scalp are nice and clean.

- Pamela Twyman

Mild enough for my baby

We like Dr. Bronner's products, but hadn't bought the soaps yet. We started out with peppermint, because it's one of my favorite scents.

I use the soap on my baby, and it's gentle enough that it leaves her skin glowing. Not worrying about chemicals and additives is a big thing when you become a parent, and using this as a daily wash gives me peace of mind.

- Priscilla Guest

Price and value in one bar

As someone who's becoming more militant about the environment, I'm glad Dr. Bronner is doing their part, offering high quality products like this natural soap.

Thrive is also keeping up their end, as membership got me this soap at nearly half what it goes for on Amazon. I use this soap as a skin cleanser and a conditioner. It has gotten rid of my itchy scalp after just two weeks of use.

- Portis G.

Hot in sensitive areas

The soap lathers up well for an organic bar soap, and it cleans smooth. I try to make sure to use a dish to prevent the soap from dissolving in excess water from the shower.

But the peppermint isn't just for show, it's really in there and in its purest oil form, it becomes an issue in sensitive areas of my body.

- Pamela Grace

All pluses with this soap

Peppermint is a great aroma for this soap, because it stays with you for hours. I sometimes shower and go without cologne because the soap smell mixes so well with my pores that I don't need an artificial scent. I love that the ingredients are all-natural, so I know I'm not putting harsh chemicals on my skin.

- Portman

Leaves my skin smooth

This soap is all natural and wonderful for a thorough wash.

The peppermint scent is sharp and perfect for those early mornings when you need something to bring you out of your daze. The soap leaves my skin smooth and moisturized and smelling great.

- Peggy Garner

Morning Pick-Me-Up

This has been one of my favorite soaps for a long time. It was recommended to me when I first started looking into healthier living, and I've been using it since. It's made from fair trade ingredients, and I love that I can shave it down and use it to make a lot of my own personal care products (including my body wash). The peppermint scent is really refreshing, and it works wonderfully to wake me up in the morning. I am seriously grumpy when I don't get to take my morning shower with my Dr. Bronner's.

- John B.

Fresh peppermint kick

This is the best bar soap I have ever used. It's so invigorating and it doesn't dry my skin out like other bar soaps. It is great for the morning shower or face wash, as the fresh mint smell wakes you right up.

Normally I prefer liquid soaps, but this stuff is excellent. And, without the bottle there is no plastic waste.

- Lissa

Great bar of soap

I don't normally use bars of soap because they tend to dry my skin out. This soap dries me out far less than anything I have ever tried in the past. Although I still get that taught feeling, my skin is soft to the touch. And the smell is invigorating.

I am a huge fan of Dr. Bronner's products, and even though this isn't #1 on my list, I still like it. I also use it for my hair sometimes when I am out of shampoo. I love the fresh minty smell it leaves in my hair!

- Pattie Bellah

Dr. Bronner's rules!

Bronner's Castile soap rocks! I like it in bar form due to the lack of a plastic container, and since it doesn't have to be diluted. I use the liquid for the laundry though. It's great for keeping my skin hydrated, and good for the planet. Good stuff!
