CASTILE SOAP HEALTH BENEFITS & USES
Sep 22, 2023
Castile soaps are derived from olive oil and other vegetable oils and are known for their skin-friendliness and moisturizing properties. Castille soap is beneficial for skin and also useful for household cleaning.
Castile soap originated in the Castile region of Spain when Aleppo soap makers combined olive oil with sodium carbonate to create a new soap that revolutionized soap making in Europe.
Authentic castile soap is made with vegetable oils like olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, jojoba oil, sunflower oil, shea butter, hemp oil, and others. These soaps are typically vegan and are beloved for their moisturizing abilities and lower carbon footprint than tallow-based soaps.
