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.

    Like it, but...

    Lois Howard (verified owner)

    I appreciate a plastic-free alternative for washing dishes. The soap is reasonably functional for most of the dishes we wash by hand. I find it less effective for greasy pans. I did cut it in half so it would be more stable, and that helped a lot.

    Great suds compared to a different bar I’ve tried. It’s going down a little faster than I would like but I would definitely buy this product again. Someone mentioned cutting it in half so that it will last longer so I’m going to try that with the next one. I expect I’ll get about four months out of one bar.

    Works well, but it doesn’t last as long as I had hoped, despite the price being on the higher end.

    Mostly Love

    cindieland (verified owner)

    This works well for mostly everything. Only complaint I have is that when I have a greasy item, I need to clean it twice. Also, be sure to keep this well drained! Don’t just let it sit in water in a dish.

    Works well for plastic free; keep a back up grease cutter

    kajalpatelbelow (verified owner)

    I love this product, b/c for most things, it does the job. But for when you have something really greasy, you may need to hit up the Dawn. Still, it will save a lot of plastic and money only using the strong liquid when needed. So far, I haven’t had to use anything else. I also really love how you when you need more soap for your sponge/cloth, you can just rub some on instead of having to grab a bottle and wet that with soapy hands.

    Great Plastic-Free Product!

    lizmheffner (verified owner)

    This was my first block dish soap! Great concept! I love the plastic free idea and the bar of soap is really big and has lasted months! This product does leave a residue and doesn’t cut through grease well. You just have to use extra since its not like your typical detergent dish soap.

    Handmade Castile Solid Dish Soap

    kianestarnes (verified owner)

    this brand was my first time trying out a block dish soap and I was really impressed ! It did leave residue on some of my dishes but since then I’ve tried the meliora dish soap (also found here on earth hero ) and so far the meliora brand has never left residue ! this is an excellent zero waste alternative but the meliora brand will continue to be my go to brand !

  12. polina.abramson

    Happy so far

    polina.abramson (verified owner)

    This is my first time using a bar dish soap and so far I’m happy with the experience. It doesn’t lather as much as liquid dish soap, but it still lathers enough for me to feel like I’m getting my dishes clean. I’m using this with the Heirloom Mayan Loofah Scrubbers from this site and they work really well together. My only concern is that it might not last as long as I would like it to. I bought the “Handmade Cedar Soap Dish” to hold this soap and it almost seems to be melting (dissolving?) into the dish a little bit. I paid $15 for this soap (a little peeved that it has now gone down to $13 as I write this review) so I really hope it lasts at least 6 months. I’m willing to pay more for sustainable products, but that is A LOT more than liquid dish soap.

    Love it

    zenjenknight (verified owner)

    Love how it makes my hands feel. Other dish soaps make my hands break out.
    It doesn’t lather as much as the usual dish soap, but rightly so! It doesn’t have damaging surfactants in it. I’m okay with that!
    Cleans well.

    Leaves spots and residue, doesn't sud; but it will do.

    lauramnevill (verified owner)

    I really wanted to switch to a zero waste dish soap as we do not have a dish washer, so we go through a lot of dish soap! I looked at this and the “NoToxLife Dishwashing Block”. I went with this one on EarthHero and it has been fine. It doesn’t suds up a whole lot, but enough to satisfy. The biggest downside is that it does leave a bit of residue, and definitely leaves spots on our silverware and glasswear. I may try another block next time, though I anticipate next time being a long ways away, as it is a large block.

    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
