Doesn't strip the hair, don't need to use conditioner anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AngMc Peppermint refreshing in the summer
I'm not sure it has been extremely beneficial yet as I have only been using it for a few weeks. The peppermint in it though is very refreshing for the summer months! I think it will take a little longer to see the "effects" it has. I will probably order another bottle to give it a good try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gallopingsally Just wonderful soap!
We use this soap in the shower and in the kitchen for hand washing. The peppermint cuts body odor without the need for harsh "deodorant" type chemical-filled soaps. It rinses clean and leaves skin soft. This is the only soap we use other than my homemade goat's milk soap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HomeschoolMominCO Great Sudsy Soap
We love this soap! Due to food allergies, we CAN NOT use anything with Gluten, Dairy or Citrus - not even citric acid. The pepperment version of this soap doesn't have any of those things. Finding something without those things to wash my 10 yo daughter's hair was a real challenge. This fits the bill and works well!
