Pure Castile Soap - Extra Virgin Cleaning Goodness

Soap making is one of the oldest and simplest chemical reactions known to man. In fact, the first soaps were accidentally made by fat dripping into the ashes of cooking fires. The saponification process is the combination of animal or vegetable oil with an alkali (sodium hydroxide for solid soap, potassium hydroxide for liquid soap). The result is soap, glycerin, and water. Most commercial, mass produced soaps are based on low cost animal tallow and includes synthetic fragrances, preservatives, moisturizers, coloring agents. Castile soap originates from the 1500's from the Castile region in Spain where it was first made and contains at least 80% olive oil.  Most natural soap makers add small amounts of other oils such as jojoba, coconut oil, hemp oil for a luscious lather and optimum moisturizing effects. They may also add natural moisturizers such as goat or sheep milk, shea butter, essential oils for fragrance, and mineral colorants.

Because Castile soap does not use animal derived fats, it has less chance of being contaminated with toxins and also has lower impact on the environment. Its even better when the soaps are certified organic, such as the case the case for Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap and Vermont Soap. Castile soap in works wonders for individuals with sensitive skin, and is great for children and babies. Olive oil contains antioxidants which may aid in cell regeneration and encourages the body to produce prostaglandins which naturally helps moistens skin and improves its texture.

A simple bar of soap should leave your body clean and moisturized. Why settle for anything soaps with unnecessary additives that may dry or irritate your skin?
