Natural Castile Liquid Soap
Natural Castile Liquid Soap
Until recent times all soap was made from natural oils and fats – not the petrochemicals, synthetic perfumes and other potentially harmful chemicals that are found in many household and personal cleaning products today. Originating in Spain, Castile soap has been popular in Europe for centuries and is a favourite in health food stores.
Using a traditional handmade process blending natural olive oil (moisturising and full of vitamins) and coconut oil (a great cleaner) results in a gentle multi-purpose cleaner.
This liquid soap is ideal as a hand or body wash, a base for homemade shampoos, household cleaner or for use in the garden.
Many cleansers can be toxic for people and the environment. However, this unscented Castile liquid soap is made with natural ingredients including certified organic olive and coconut oils and contains no nasties. It is completely free of petrochemical-based detergents, palm oil, sulphates (SLS & SLES), paraben, mineral oil compounds, PEGS, PPA, DEA, glycols, phthalates, and synthetic perfumes, surfactants, colours or additives.
This castile soap will not produce a large amount of lather as it does not contain any added synthetic foaming agents. It is non-allergenic and suitable for people who are chemically sensitive. A great 100% biodegradable, vegan-friendly option.
How to Use:
This multi-purpose Castile soap can be used as a hand and body wash. Dispense in a soap pump container for hand washing. In the bath and shower, apply to loofah or cloth and lather up. It is suitable as is, if an unscented product is required, or combine with your favourite essential oils. Stir 10-20 drops of your preferred essential oil in to 100 mls of castile soap and stir well until combined. Oils can be selected for their aroma, cleaning qualities, healing benefits or antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. To thicken this soap base just add a little table salt.
Liquid Castile soap is also as a versatile household cleaner that is great for kitchen and bathroom surfaces and appliances, dishwashing, hard floors and carpets, hand and machine washing for clothes, windows and cars. It can be used in conjunction with homemade cleaning recipes with white vinegar, washing soda, borax, bi-carb soda or essential oils.
Natural Castile soap is ideal for use in the garden as a non-toxic wetting agent and base for bug sprays. Try combining 20 mls of liquid soap with 1 litre of warm water. Add ½-1 tsp of crushed garlic or cayenne pepper for insects, or 10 mls of vinegar to tackle powdery mildew.
