Dr. Bronner’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is expeller-pressed from the fresh, carefully dried coconut kernel, which gives it a mild, delicious aroma. Versatile and healthy, VCO can be used for stir-frying, soups, sauces, baking, deserts, and body care.
Dr. Bronner’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is produced at Serendipol in Sri Lanka’s coconut triangle. Serendipol was founded by Dr. Bronner’s in the company’s ongoing effort to create a cleaner supply chain by sourcing all of their major raw ingredients from fair trade sources.

Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Organic Hand Hygiene Spray
A home and hand-bag essential that can be used on-the-go, on buses and trains to help combat cold and flu season. The organic and fair-trade peppermint oil in this new product is sourced from Pavitramenthe, Dr. Bronner’s partner in Bareilly, India, where more than 1,500 farmers utilize regenerative organic agriculture practices.
The Peppermint Organic Hand Hygiene Spray contains the active ingredient, ethyl alcohol, which is 99.9% effective against germs, while the peppermint oil leaves behind an uplifting scent. Organic glycerin, which naturally draws moisture into the skin, is added to the hand spray rather than synthetic petrochemical thickeners, leaving a smooth after-feel that is not sticky or drying. Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Hygiene Spray is also available in a calming lavender scent.

Sal Suds is the ultimate multi-purpose cleaner, great for just about any household task. 100% cruelty-free and biodegradable, use a couple tablespoons for an average load of laundry, dilute with water to sponge down countertops or to mop your floor, or even mix with baking soda to make a powerful scouring agent for bathtubs and sinks.
