What is castile soap? What sets it apart from traditional cleaning products?

Castile soap is a more natural alternative to traditional cleaning products that doesn't use synthetic ingredients. This is much better for the environment as it doesn't contain preservatives, phosphates, & nitrates.

It also comes in various shapes and sizes to fit whatever solution you need!



It is also quite versatile, and wears many hats. It can be used for the following:

  1. Shampoo
  2. Face, hand, and body soap
    1. “All-in-One Cleanser”: Gentler than regular bar soaps, this versatile soap not only cleanses the skin but also restores natural oils. Additionally, it aids in managing acne.
  3. Deodorant
    1. You can make your own natural deodorant using 
  4. Makeup remover
    1. Removes foundation and eye or lip makeup
  5. Shaving
    1. Soothes the skin during shaving

 These are just some of the many uses of Castile Soap.

In the above examples, you can mix the soap with other products such as oil or water as the original product is highly concentrated.

The Catch

  • Most castile soaps come in a huge container and a lid, without a soap dispenser
    • we purchases a nice (reusable) soap dispenser to make it that much easier to use in our day-to-day lives.
  • A few come as bar-soap, which may me more difficult to work with 
  • Most have no scent to them
    • So you can buy or use a scent such as an essential oil and mix it in to achieve the perfect scent for you!
Things to note:
  • It may strip away colored/dyed hair 
  • Mixing with lemon or vinegar can leave behind a mess as in sticky film or a curdled solution (and neutralizes the cleaning effects)
  •  As mentioned early, you should dilute the soap as if it is concentrated, it can be hard on the skin
  • It expires after a certain amount of time, as it has no preservatives.
