This coconut oil soap is almost magical in it's cleaning abilities yet still mild enough for most skin types. It has a very nice (yummy even) orange and tea tree scent. It is an all purpose soap that can be used on skin, hair, fur, dishes, walls and laundry (as the label says). Although I have recently switched to Harmony Soap for my hair I used Orange Sunshine for my bath & hair soap for months.

I use it for dishes (it lathers like crazy on a sponge or cloth). One or two tablespoons will do the laundry. (Works in new energy efficient machines too) My silk painter friend uses it on her brushes. My bald friend swear it gets rid of flaking scalp. My anonymous friend says it cleans blood off the walls (and who is going to argue with that?). Many of us use it for dog baths (although I do have a dog shampoo bar too). Put a squirt of it in your spray bottle filled with water as a great all purpose cleaner or a couple of squirts in your mop bucket for floors. Great hand soap too. My mechanic uses the bar version and a lot of gardeners use the bar or foaming version. The foaming version is good for kids (who tend to use too much of most natural soaps because they are not as thick as commercial soaps) and it feels heavenly with a wonderful creamy texture.

This soap really cleans everything and here's what's so fantastic about that: You can just use plain old soap to clean everything with no detergents or never heard of "natural" ingredients. (Have you looked at the labels on some of the "natural", "green" or "eco" cleaners? There is nothing indentifiable in some of them and certainly nothing I can make in my kitchen, which means I don't want it in my kitchen!)

Ingredients: Saponified coconut oil, water, sweet orange essential oil, tea tree essential oil.

Size: 8 ounce pump bottle or 16 ounce with dispenser cap.

I do not use any fragrance oils or other synthetic ingredients.

I do not use Palm oil which is most often used in soap that does not contain animal products (tallow or lard). I do not think it is necessary and I do not use it because it is hard to find a reliable, reasonably priced, sustainable source that does not endanger rain forests or orangutans.
