This review is for the Castile Soap – Best Unscented All Purpose Oil Based Cleaner – Safe for Use on Dishes, Floors, Counters, Laundry & Pets – Powerful Formula with Natural Ingredients – Easily Diluted – 32 OZ – from TriNova. There are simply so many uses for this Castile Soap by TriNova; I am convinced I have not find a use for all of the things in my house that require cleaning (but I am fully committed to discovering them all). I appreciate the diversity of this Castile Soap. I mean I can use it on my face, hair and body. And, I can use it on my food, plants, pet and all over my home! Products like this do not come around often.
The bottle does not list the ingredients; however, I went to the website and located the following information:
Tall Oil Fatty Acid – A vegan friendly alternative to tallow acids, derived from trees (source)
Hydroxyethylcellulose – a thickening agent with no notable side effects (source)
EDTA-4Na – a chelating agent (source)
Phenoxyethanol – a bacteria fighting preservative that occurs in green tea (source)
Benzoic Acid – a preservative that occurs in nature and can be synthetically produced as well with no, or low, health concerns (source)
Ethylhexylglycerin – a naturally derived alternative to parabens that acts as a preservative (source)
Glycereth-2 Cocoate – a surfactant derived from coconut acid with no, or low, health concerns (source)
*None (<0.5%) remains after saponifying oils into soap and glycerine
This is an all-natural product that works extremely well and lasts a long time. It is so powerful, that it requires dilution. Add that to the fact that the bottle is huge at 32 ounces and you understand the value of this product. It is also safe to use around your pets and children.
I like to add some essential oils to the diluted Castile Soap. When I use it in the bathroom, eucalyptus, tea tree and peppermint are nice. I stick with citrus in the kitchen, sweet orange, lemon, grapefruit and bergamot are fabulous. Ylang ylang, carrot seed, lavender, jasmine and peppermint are also great choices for the body and hair. As I said in the beginning, I have yet to discover all of the ways I can use Castile Soap in my home, but discovery is so much fun. This one is a true gem!
