I tried Kirk’s Original Coco Castile recently. At first I wasn’t overly impressed. I mean, I had no complaints about the soap at all. But it just seemed like regular soap. And after all I’ve been hearing about castile soap lately, I don’t know, I guess I expected something magical. So I was kind of “meh.” But then I read up on it. FSBar_Original-310x410

It’s only got a few ingredients. It’s Leaping Bunny certified. It’s vegan. It’s made in the US. It’s biodegradable. It’s hypoallergenic. It’s non-toxic. It’s septic system safe. It’s kosher. It’s gluten-free. It contains no known irritants or allergens (it’s even safe to get it in your eye). It’s good for all skin types. They have an aloe version and a fragrance-free version for extra sensitive skin. It’s got coconut oil in it (which is crazy good for skin). It’s good with different water types. You can use it as laundry detergent. You can mix it with water and spray it on your garden to keep bugs away. And you can use it as dog or horse shampoo.

So it’s just all around good for pretty much everyone and everything (including the Earth). And if my only complaint is that it’s not literally magical, well, that’s pretty good. So then I was like, ok, that’s a pretty awesome soap. Green thumbs up.
