Since I decided to go natural, I’ve realized that I’ve been adding more natural products to my overall beauty routine. Shea butter instead of facial moisturizer, all natural body butter as opposed to lotion…and now – Castile soap instead of body wash! I recently purchased Dr. Bronners Castile Soap in Peppermint after I realized that my delicious cocoa butter body wash had sodium sulfate. Not sexy! Here are the ingredients in the castile soap:
Water, Saponfied Organic Coconut Oil*, Saponified Organic Olive Oil*, Organic Glycerin, Organic Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Mentha Arvensis Extract, Organic Mentha Peperita (Peppermint) Oil, Citric Acid, Tocopherol (* Certified Fair Trade by IMO)
Nice…(in South Park voice). I like this stuff much better. No residue and no sulfates! My skin feels much more moisturized after using this in the shower than it has using my body wash, or even conditioner. However, I’m not sure I should have gotten the peppermint one…for reasons I will not mention. Well no, I guess I will. Have you ever put Icy Hot all over your body? Yea, it feels sorta like that. And since I am cold all the time anyway, I feel like I’m dying for a little bit after using it. BUT, I do feel clean!!! I might go pick up the almond version later this week… Oh, and you can also wash your hair with it if you want. I mean…I’m not going to (I have shampoo bars), but I will def consider it once my poo bars are gone.
Anyway, just wanted to write a quick post…what products have you gone natural with?
