How is Castile Soap made?

⁠Soap is made by saponifying a fat or oil with an alkali.⁠

Organic/Fair Trade Coconut, Palm Kernel, Olive, Hemp & Jojoba oil are used.⁠

👉 For liquid soap, the alkali is potassium hydroxide.⁠
👉 For bar soap, the alkali is sodium hydroxide.⁠

Alkali's are made by running electricity through salt water.⁠
No alkali remains in the final product of Dr Bronner's Castile Soap⁠

Saponification process⁠

'A simple one-step reaction with no waste generated'.⁠

🌟 Glycerin is split off from the fatty acids⁠
🌟 Fatty acids combine with the sodium or potassium to form soap, the hydroxide forms water⁠

Resulting in: A high quality, no-tox, versatile soap for cleaning the home and body⁠

⁠Dr Bronner's liquid soaps are three times more concentrated than most liquid soaps on the market, which means more soap per bottle and less waste in packaging materials.
