Je veux savon de castille!
March 24, 2009 11:01 PM   Subscribe

is there a website that i can order--and have shipped--Dr. Bronner's soap (lavender, liquid castile) online. Catch: It needs to be shipped to Paris, France. (Cost, within reasonable limits, is not a factor.)

help me make someone very happy, please! Also, I would prefer the website to be in English.

Response by poster: in case anyone tries...Amazon does not ship this soap to Paris.

this amazon listing is by the vitamin shoppe and their shipping rates page on amazon make it clear that they ship to over 200+ countries with ups, including france.

alternately, since you're in new york city, there's probably a deli near you that sells dr bronner's—just buy a bottle and ship it yourself? there are a bunch of 24 hour delis within ten minutes of my apartment that sell the particular item you want; i bought a bottle a few months ago at 2 a.m. to wash delicates with.

you could contact the company directly. i don't know how international orders work since i've only ordered from the US, but it looks like you can at least talk to them about it.

Best answer: may be just the ticket [par avion] for your suds... check this out: lavender bronner's in a fairly hefty bottle. they've got the smaller sizes as well. and from a brief peek at their checkout page, it looks like they'll ship first class to france.

fwiw, i get monthly shipments from them and have never been disappointed. i find their prices rather stunning, too; dunno know how they do it.

American Apparel carry it, and they do ship to Paris. I haven't been into a branch of the shop in a while so I can't say if it's just mail order, but they have quite a few Paris shops and might carry it in them, too.

Sorry, please ignore the non-mail order half, I just reread your question with my brain switched on.

It looks like The Hemp Shop and 21st Century Health, both in the UK, ship to France. I used to by my Dr B from the latter back in the day.

A note, suggestion: I use the gallon Dr Bronner's and it lasts me 13 months for 2 people. No degradation. This might save you the constant ordering.
