Castile soap is a name used in English-speaking countries for olive oil based soap made in a style similar to that originating in the Castile region of Spain. Traditionally made with olive oil, in many parts of the world it still is.
Olive oil soap bars are highly valued for their moisturizing properties and gentle nature. It produces a very mild soap with a creamy lather. It never strips the skin of its natural oils, but helps moisturize, leaving it velvety to the touch.
Castile soap is especially great for dry, itchy, irritated, or sensitive skin, as well as conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It's so mild, it can even be used on babie's delicate skin!
Some soap companies may loosely use the term 'castile' for soap with a high olive oil content while still incorporating other oils like palm or coconut for hardness. Our castile is of high quality, made entirely from 100% cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil. This special batch has been aged an entire year, making it an extra hard bar, naturally!
