Dr Bronners

Posted by Inkstained on 11/16/10


So I've heard good things about dr Bronners soap instead of green soap. Figured I'd give it a try but I noticed they have a lot of different products. Which is the better one?

i think the bronners that most people use for tattooing is the castille soap, the peppermint one is awesome. the thing is that stuff is like 1000 uses in one, you can wash your hair with it, wash your floor with it, wash clothes with it... it's really amazing stuff. its also pretty cheap and im pretty sure they are all about fair trade and responsible manufactuing and whatnot. i use it for cleaning my hair and clothes and for washing my dog.

ok... obviously im a big castille soap fan... back to tattooing...

the stuff is pretty damn stong, so if you are going to use it instead of green soap you should water it down to the same ratio you would with green soap. it will burn like a mofo if you dont.

its really worth checking out, and not just for tattoos

Very cool. I noticed the castille was hemp oil based so that was a little strange to me. That's why I wasn't sure. I like the fact that it's organic. Usually in a 16 oz squeeze bottle I only use 1 cap full of green soap. Id rather use straight water whenever possible though. Im gonna order some now.
It may be strange for my customers though. They always say. Ahhhh Iove that smell when I squirt em with green soap. Hahhaa

I use Techni-care. It is a skin prep soap before you apply the stencil, but it works awesome for how gentle it is, not to mention that I really notice that is does not irritate at all.

Ive used techni-care for years for skin prep and in my water bottle too. I only have about a quarter gallon left so im hording it for just skin prep now.. i wish you could still get it, its amazing stuff.

Thanks to this forum im useing Dr bronners to rinse with.. i like it alot, but it seems to take stencils off faster.

Tony: For a while I know that the FDA discontinued it because of the label... ridiculous. Anyhow, from my understanding, you can get it again, the problem is that it is expensive from what I hear. We just happen to buy tons of that shit a while back.

techni-care or a product exactly like it is still around, I think they just changed the name. or the same company changed names and then changed the name of the product. I cant remember the exact lowdown atm. I will ask tomorow at work.

awesome, i havint checked on the situation since early this year. I would appreciate that info soloman.

I know it was around 70 bucks a gallon before the FDA stepped in and messed everything up. Care-tech has a large line of products and they made them discontinue all of them because one of them had a lableing issue ( for whoever didint know )

Even if its twice as much it would still be worth it, ive used it for about 5 years and havint had one reported infection. Ive also used it to clear up 2 infections (non tattoo related) with very fast results. Im sold on it.

To the best of my understanding, Dettol shares the same antiseptic chemical, chloroxylenol, with Technicare. I believe Technicare was somewhere around a %3 solution, and Dettol I think is closer to %4 to %5. I could be mistaken though.

I do seem to also remember reading that Technicare had a 6 hour residual kill time, that could only be negated by alcohol...and Dettol contains isopropynol. So I'm not sure how that all works out.

There's got to be someone here with more technical info on this than me, just thought I'd throw in my post.

Go to your local Henry's Market. You can get different sizes and varieties of Dr Bronners products. My clients prefer the smell of dr Bronners over green soap. Overall, works well in place of green soap.

Hey they sell castile soap for half the price @ trader joes fyi. Secondly, i know that we are supposed to dilute it ( which I do ) but I wonder why it burns seeing as it doesn't have alcohol in it? I mean it has fragrance but they are oils. I use the baby mild one just to make sure I don't get anyone sensitive to anything.
