Fantastic Alternative to Dr Bronner's Castile Soap

By 

from Podunk, NY

Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Castile Soap:

When it comes to using natural products, I prefer them in almost every case as compared to other types of soap. Although we use Dr Bronner's Soap a lot, Desert Essence Tea Tree Castile Soap is a fabulous alternative.

Effectiveness
There are many things I like about Desert Essence Tea Tree Castile Soap. First of all, it has very natural ingredients. That means that it is does not have the chemical names in it that many other soaps have. Secondly, the tea tree oil in this soap is genuine and effective. Tea tree oil is an excellent antibacterial ingredient which does wonders fighting problems that cause infections and problems. I especially love it for using with my Clarisonic to battle itchy patches that might appear on my skin from time to time. When using the tea tree oil Castile soap I often find that the itchy rash spot is gone overnight. This is something that is more effective than any other treatment I have ever tried. As a hand soap, this is also fantastic as it is a natural antibacterial that does not dry out the skin. This soap tends to be a little less harsh than Dr Bronner's but keep in mind, it still has to be watered down for most effective use. When using it in the hand soap dispenser, I water it down 50/50 to make it last longer and it still works great. I have not had any problems with dry skin or itching like I have with so many other soaps. The guys like it too. INGREDIENTS FOR SENSITIVE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO KNOW: Castile Soap (Water (Aqua), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Tall Oil, Potassium Hydroxide), Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil

Scent
I love the scent of tea tree oil. It is strong and almost piney in nature, but it is true to the scent of tea tree oil and I do like it a lot. The scent is strong at first, but does not present any problems with other scents I want to use, as it fades rather quickly.

Great Tea Tree Soap

By 

from Eagle River, AK

Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Castile Soap:

Have you ever smelled Australian Tea Tree Oil? It has a very pungent odor, one I don't care for in the least. It does however have natural antiseptic properties as well as being an antibacterial and antifungal. Some people call tea tree oil a medicine chest in a bottle, as it can be used for a wide variety of skin problems.

Desert Essence is a brand that I can find locally at Fred Meyer stores, and when it goes on sale I pick up a few of their products. Their Tea Tree Oil Castile Soap is a thin liquid soap, and is a nice alternative for someone looking for a soap that will kill germs naturally. I do not like the antibiotic hand soaps on the market because I feel they are contributing to super germs.

Be that as it may, I wasn't real pleased with the scent of this castile soap. It is gentle and even healing for the hands, but the scent is just too powerful for my tastes, and it lingers long after a hand washing. I have used tea tree oil soaps in the past that didn't smell like tea tree oil, but this one really does. Just a heads up if you are interested in buying it, screw the cap off in the store and take a sniff. If you can handle the scent, this would be a wonderful liquid soap!
