WHAT IS REAL SOAP?
“Castile” is your guarantee that you are using a genuinely ecological and simple soap. In earlier centuries an all-vegetable-based soap was made in the Castile region of Spain from local olive oil. It was called Castile soap. By the turn of this century, “Castile soap” had come to mean any vegetable oil-based soap, as distinct from animal (tallow) fat-based soap. Liquid soap and bar soap are made in much the same way, meaning fats and oils are saponified with the addition of a hydroxide salt. Chemistry, time and elbow grease do the rest.
My HAND & BODY WASH is created with hemp and olive oil, coconut and castor oil Hemp and olive oil make extremely conditioning and produce a lovely emollient soap which will not dry out your skin. This soap retains all of it's natural glycerin, which is created during the soap making process. Glycerin has been used for centuries to nourish and condition skin and leaves your skin squeaky clean!
Always check the label, Castile soap (liquid or bar) will be made from only oils– not a complex blend of detergents. Those are "syn-det" blends and are often labeled as “Soap” despite the fact they may, or may not, contain any real soap whatsoever. Synthetic "soap" produces toxic waste during manufacturing, and the detergents themselves have slower biodegradability.
"Syn-Dets" have also altered what we expect from soap. They create big, persistent bubbles and lather from their heavy chemical loads. A mild, conditioning olive oil castile soap may not give you that massive pile of suds you have come to expect from an effective soap, so you might think it's cleaning well. But bubble, lather and foam have NOTHING to do with the ability of the soap to cleanse.
