Purchased Dr. Jacobs for the basis of my homemade gluten free shampoo and it is wonderful!!!!! Doesn't take much, you mix it with equal parts water, some liquid coconut oil and some essential oil and you have the best shampoo in the world for those of us who just simply cannot buy shampoo over the counter. You will never go wrong with this soap.

Just what I needed. Quality soap, no fragrance or other additives. I mix it with my own essential oils so it smells the way I like and I know what's in it.

I think this Castile soap is great for my skin and with the peppermint flavor it gives a classic touch, I would try the other flavors from DR JACOBS in my next order.

Benefits of Castile Organic Soap
1. Doesn't Cause Irritation
Many skin irritations like itchiness, flaking, and redness are a result of dry skin. In the commercial soap making process glycerin is removed from the oil used to make the soap so that it can be sold for more expensive applications (facial creams, cosmetics, etc.). This glycerin is what provides moisture to your skin. When pure soap is made all of the glycerin is retained so all of that moisture stays in the soap- allowing your skin to be hydrated with every use. With the moisture content so much higher, pure soap can even be used on babies and children.
2. Won't Clog Pores
Pure soap actually opens pores, unclogging them and allowing for a deeper clean. Subsequently, people with severe acne have reported that using pure soap has allowed for their pores to be gently unclogged- reducing acne breakouts and the occurrence of blackheads.
3. Accelerates Healing
Pure soap can actually accelerate skin's natural healing properties- allowing for scars and stretch marks to become less visible over time.
4. Good for Skin Conditions/Sensitivities
People with eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and SLS-sensitivity have a hard time finding skincare products that won't irritate their skin or worsen their condition. Pure soap is the best solution for these conditions or sensitivities because it is very gentle on the skin and can greatly improve overall skin health.
5. Carries Fewer Serious Health Risks
Commercial anti-bacterial soaps contain a chemical called triclosan, which is actually registered as a pesticide by the EPA. Triclosan can lead to endocrine system issues, birth defects, decreased fertility, a weakened immune system, and even cancer. Pure soap does not contain triclosan.
6. Better Value
Pure soaps are only slightly more expensive, and the high-quality ingredients used are pure and all-natural, whereas commercial soaps use low-quality ingredients composed mainly of cheap chemicals and additives.
With all of the natural soaps out there, which one should you use? Our favorite pure bath soap is called Shabondama, which means "bubble" in Japanese and can be found on our website!

I wasn't sure what to expect with a Castile soap but received a sample and was intrigued by the claims of its many uses. I used it as a body wash and was really pleased with how soft my skin felt afterwards; I first used this in a particularly dry January and my skin felt really replenished of moisture. A relatively small amount was needed on my mesh sponge to work up a nice lather. Almond Honey was the fragrance I tried and I really liked it as the fragrance was mild but still strong enough to get a nice whiff when up close to the skin. I'm not sure about the other uses and was definitely skeptical of using as a laundry detergent but was pleased enough with just the one application I used it for that I will likely purchase again.

I have been searching for a pure soap for awhile now. This is the first I have found that I will gladly buy again. The bottle is listed as Dr Jacobs Naturals (Not organics, like the amazon listing says). It is a castile soap with minimal ingredients. The bottle claims that the honey has antioxidant properties - although I don't see it in the ingredients. I am not entirely happy with the ambiguous 'Fragrance' and Caramel. There is a pure version, but I haven't tried it yet. The almond honey scent is light - and I can hardly notice it after my shower. The soap does not dry my skin like other castile soaps I have tried. I don't need to dilute this to use as a body wash, unlike Dr Bronners. The pump is really handy. Overall, I will be buying it again.
