What is Castile Soap?

20-Sep-2021

‘ Historical Fact: The most ancient way of producing soap was by cooking fatty acids from slaughtered animals which were practised by the Ancient Mesopotamians. “https://theconversation.com/the-dirty-history-of-soap-136434 ” Followed by the Egyptians, which was known for their traditional method of using vegetable oils and alkaline salts (later; fragrances) in making soap- considering them as one of the notable ethnic groups in high maintenance of beauty & hygiene. “https://www.janiking.co.nz/blog/new-blog-post-4/ ”

 

Today, with the wide spectrum of choices in every kind of body wash and soap, we are almost torn in between choosing something that thoroughly cleanses away the dirts and bacteria OR going for a skin-care product that bring promising effects to us.  So why ‘Castile’ Soap?

 

Castile soaps are primarily olive oil-based, while containing different amounts of plant oils, commonly extracted from argan, neem, coconut, palm, hemp & jojoba.  On a global aspect, the term, ‘Castile’ indicate that it does not contain any animal contents or synthetic detergents.

How does being (SLS & Paraben Free*) help with our environment?

 

Ever wondered how the bubbles, foams & soapy lather are created?

Well, most commercial soaps and detergents rely very much on SLS & SLES (Chemical Agent: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) which not only increase water wastage upon using, but also contribute to chemical pollution during production.  In other words, since soaps are complex mixtures of toxic and persistent active ingredients, it ultimately impacts our environment in a gradual way- yet concerning manner.  “https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0048969721040857”

 

Thus, by using soaps that are made with simple nature ingredients means lesser impact, that helps to save water, reducing chemical usage while promoting an eco-system: to re-use & re-cycle nature components.

Suitable for All Skin Types,

‘Castile Soaps are good for all skin types, especially for sensitive and dry skin. When the soap is made, glycerine is retained unlike in most commercial soaps where it is removed. Glycerine in the natural oils moisturizers and hydrates the skin. It is perfect not just for aldults but for babies and children too. Castile soap actually helps to opens pores, unclogging them and allowing for a deeper clean. People with severe acne have reported that using Castile soap has allowed for their pores to be gently unclogged- reducing acne breakouts and the occurrence of blackheads. It has also been known to be effective for those with ezcema. The best soap that anyone can use!’
