Castile Soap" has been a very over used term these days. Many companies throw "Castile" around to market their soap, but what is Castile soap? Soap is made from oil and lye (basically) and the properties of the soap are dependent, therefore, on the oil. Castile soap is traditionally made from 100% Olive Oil base which gives the soap a slippery mild feel to the bar with light lather. This is why it is good for sensitive skin. Our Castile is made from 100% Olive Oil, but we take it a step further by adding goat milk for a harder, even more luxurious bar for the most sensitive skin.
Why do we use the oils we use in soaps? What are the benefits?
Olive Oil: A traditional emollient used in soap because it is mild and gives a "moisturized feel" to the soap.
Sunflower Oil: Very similar to olive with a lighter/cleaner feel to it. The skin feels oh so nice when sunflower is used.
Shea Butter: Makes a creamier bar with a more "moisturized feel". With sensitive skin, reduced lather can be a good thing, so shea butter can be a real assistant, but in the end this has to be "in balance" with the rest of the soap.
Organic Palm: When we use palm, we use organic "sustainable" palm, for the reasons of deforestation in tropical regions (see below for further explanation). Palm and similar, are pretty much necessary to make a harder, stable bar of soap that is appealing to the population majority.
Coconut: One word... Lather. Coconut adds to hardness and creates "big bubbles" in soap. A little goes a long way, too much can be "too effective".
Hemp: We use unrefined hemp to avoid chemical contamination possible in the refining process. It also gives a nice natural aroma to the soap. Hemp oil adds a unique skin feel and moisturizing effect.
