| What is castile soap?|
Castile soap isn't a brand, but a type of soap made exclusively from vegetable oil rather than animal fat or synthetic substances. There is a wide variety of castile variants that use oil from plants such as coconut, jojoba, sunflower, olive etc. The simple nature of the soap means a lesser enviromental impact due to reduced waste stream during manufacture and also faster biodegradability.
Castile soap - so versatile.
Castile soap has many uses aside from washing your skin - it's also known as seafarer's soap due to its versatility. We use an olive oil based one in some of our shampoos - works great and most people don't need to use a conditioner. If you've ever tried using normal soap to wash your hair, you would have likely found your hair very dry afterwards, but you would not experienced that with castile soap - it's because the glycerin content is retained, whereaas in normal soaps much of the glycerin is removed and sold separately in moisturizers.
