Cruelty Free

Cruelty Free is a certification process through PETA that labels products that are not tested on animals. All companies that are included on PETA’s cruelty-free list have signed a statement verifying that they don’t use ingredients or create finished products that help conduct or pay for any tests on animals.

Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Sulfate Free

Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.

    I have hard water with a water softener. Sometimes shampoo bars don’t work for me, and I have been told it is because of our very hard water. My block just came in the mail today, it worked great! I washed some dishes to test it out. Rinsed off well, sudzed up well, and all around easy to use. I paired it with the copper scrubbing pads. I’m so excited this product works well! I had doubts but it proved me wrong.

    A must have!!

    This dish block smells great and works really well with the dish brush. I think it will last a long time because you don’t see it shrink at all, whereas when you use dish soap from a bottle you truly see it disappear each day. If I can update this review I will update it when I have used it all up to see how long it lasted me 🙂

    This is my first time using a solid dish washing soap. It gets very lathery and cleans well.

    Obsessed with this soap bar! It’s huge (definitely worth the price), lasts forever (very hard to overuse, unlike liquid soaps), and you can get a nice lather going (an issue I’ve had with other environmentally-friendly soaps). I’ve recommended it to all my friends and family, they’ve all loved it as well.

    This does clean dishes great, but it takes some extra effort to make sure all the soap is washed off dishes because it doesn’t make suds the way liquid soap does

      Hi Melody! This soap block should last you a couple of months. It’s easy to blow through liquid soaps and we find that this one doesn’t get used up quite as quickly. To extend its life even longer, we recommend pairing it with a slotted soap dish so that it may properly dry between uses!

  9. Question

    Scott Andrews

    How do you actually use this? Just lather it on a cloth or something? Does it make suds in the water?

      Hi Scott! Thanks for your question. This dish block makes for an excellent plastic-free alternative to generic liquid dish soap. Since it lacks common surfactants like SLS, it won’t lather in quite the same way, but the coconut and olive oils cut grease like no other! We like to use it with a dish brush like this one or with a compostable loofah. With solid dish soap, the rougher the washing tool the better!

    Glad I made the purchase

    HappyCustomer (verified owner)

    I had been using a bar soap that was meant for babies, and it worked just fine. However, I prefer this soap since it’s meant for cutting through grease, and it lasts longer. Which means it ends up being more economical than the other bar soap I was using. I have to use a little more than I expected to get a lather, but overall, I’m happy with the product. I also like that the company aims to be as minimal waste as possible.

    Castile dish soap block gets me excited to do the dishes!

    Tonalea Putzler (verified owner)

    I love this product for its simplicity and effectiveness. I’m trying to purchase more items that don’t contain chemicals or have plastic packaging. It suds up really nice and rinses clean.
    I use it with the walnut shell scrub pads that I also purchased from earth hero.

  12. Question

    J.B.

    What’s the grease-cutting capacity of this soap? Several of the natural dish soaps I’ve tried have been borderline useless when it comes to cleaning up butter or other cooking oils.

      Admin Ellie Mersereau

      Hi! One of the best ways to cut grease is actually with oil. Since two of the main ingredients in this soap are oils (olive and coconut), it works wonders when lathered up with a dish brush or sponge.
