The label of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap is notoriously crowded with statements of Emmanuel Bronner’s personal philosophy, a combination of Jewish and Christian thought, which he called “All-One-God-Faith” and the “Moral ABC.” But don’t be fooled by the wacky label – this multi-tasking, organic soap is invaluable and an absolute travel essential.

 

Made with just a combination of vegetable oils (including olive oil, coconut oil, and hemp oil), lye and various essential oils for fragrance (such as lavender, peppermint, and eucalyptus), Dr. Bronner’s list of ingredients is short and simple. The product’s simplicity is derived from the Castile soap-making method that is the foundation of Dr. Bronner’s formula. This centuries-old method combines lye and vegetable oils to create soap renowned for its emollient qualities.

The ingredients are all-natural and less processed than most other soaps on the market, so Dr. Bronner’s is incredibly gentle and totally safe for folks with sensitive skin or allergies. The ingredients are also fair trade, so consumers can trust their dollars are not going to support exploitative labor practices abroad.

 

The soap is also extremely versatile and is conveniently available in either liquid or bar form. The label claims there are at least 18 different uses, including the duties typical of a good soap, such as washing body, face or hair; and also the tougher jobs like housecleaning, laundry and even pest control. For any traveler pressed for luggage space, this soap is sure to be a lifesaver.

 

Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap is one of those rare handmade, high-quality, effective products that is also sustainable and incredibly affordable ($7 for an eight-ounce bottle). No toiletries bag is complete without it. Plus, the label makes for great bathroom reading material.
