Castile Soap is known as the most gentle soap. Castile (pronounced "cass - teel') soap originated in the Castile region of Spain and was made exclusively with olive oil. It is a wonderfully mild bar of soap that gently cleanses skin.
Today many people and companies call their soap castile soap when it is made with oils other than olive oil. This is unfortunate because while these soaps may (or may not) be good, they are not castile and do not have the properties of a true castile soap. If oils other than olive are used, it should be called simply an olive oil or vegetable oil soap. Some soap makers refer to these soaps as "bastile" soaps (bastardized castile).
A true castile soap will have a lotion-like lather, and not the bubbly lather that most people are used to. Soaps that are called castile but have a big bubbly lather, have something else added to them to create those bubbles.
Our castile soap is made with extra virgin olive oil as the oil portion and goat milk as the liquid. This is the mildest soap that we make. Many women prefer to use castile goat milk soap on their face because of how gently it cleanses. Others with extremely sensitive skin can also use the castile soap.
Our castile soap will not last as long as our other soaps because we only use the olive oil, but you can make it last longer by using a soap dish or soap saver and letting it dry out in between uses.
