What is Castile Soap:
Castile is the English name that is used for olive oil based soaps that originated centuries ago in the Castile region in Spain. It was introduced to the rest of Europe during the middle ages and in the last century to the rest of the world. The word Castile is now used generically to refer to soaps that use vegetable or plant oils that include, Neem, Argan, Coconut, Palm and other localized oils found in different parts of the world.
Essential oils are often added to infused different scents to the Soaps. These together wtih the efficacies of blending with the oils, enhances the senses, promotes well being and cleans naturally without the use of parabens, sulphates and SLFs.

An All Purpose Soap You Can Trust
Castile soap is made exclusively with vegetable oils. There will be no lard, tallow, or other animal fats in a Castile soap. Traditionally, a Castile soap was made with 100% olive oil, but modern Castile-style soaps, including Dr. Bronner's, blend in other vegetable oils, like coconut.
If you have longed for a soap that you can trust is made with pure, all-natural, chemical-free ingredients, Castile would be at the the top of the list. Castile soap represents one of the best natural and biodegradable soaps that can be manufactured by hand.
Castile soap is not only a great soap for washing your body and hair as part of a natural skin care routine, but you can do the laundry with it — plus, it can safely be used by children. Castile soap is also very popular among vegans and vegetarians since it’s plant-based. Also, it doesn’t lose potency with time and is often seen in the form of liquid Castile soap or pure Castile soap as a bar.
