Pure handmade castile soap made from organic olive oil, saponified lye and water, nothing else.

What Is Castile Soap?
This incredibly versatile soap is vegetable-based, and made free of any animal fats and synthetic ingredients. It was first made in the Mediterranean before spreading throughout Europe, where it got the name Castile from the region of Spain.

Castile soap traditionally made with olive oil (but today can be made with coconut, almond, walnut, castor, or hemp oil) These oils give the soap its luxurious lathering and moisturizing properties.

In addition to these oils, castile soaps contain lye. When mixed with oil, lye creates soap molecules that, when mixed with water, create charged atoms that capture dirt.

Castile soap registers a whopping 8.9 on the pH scale. The pH scale is used to determine how acidic or alkaline different solutions are. Alkaline solutions are better for cutting through grease. Castile soap is right up there with baking soda, and it's even more alkaline than mild dish soap.

There's not much this soap can't do — use it to clean your body, your hair, your kitchen, and even your pets and the best part is, it's natural, non-toxic, biodegradable, and affordable.

How Is It Different Than Other Soaps?
Traditional soaps, like most the ones you'll find on supermarket shelves, often use tallow (a.k.a. animal fat). Castile soap uses vegetable oil, making it the vegan and biodegradable alternative to other soaps. For these reasons, it can be used as both a beauty product and a household cleaner. It's an all-purpose solution to all your cleaning needs that will save you space and cash.

Handmade, hand-cut and packaged with zero plastic.
