What is Castile Soap?

Castile Soaps are amazing soaps made naturally from pure vegetable oils that are gently cleansing and moisturising on your skin.


What is Castile Soap?

Castile (pronounced: ka·steel) soap originated from the Castile region of Spain and was traditionally made from 100% olive oil. Over the centuries, castile soap has now come to refer to soaps made from vegetable oils. Most castile soaps are primarily olive oil based, and can also contain differing amounts of plant oils such as coconut, palm, castor, sweet almond and sunflower amongst others.

Are Tsuki Soaps Castile Soaps?

Yes! 100%!

All our Tsuki natural handmade soaps, both bar soaps and liquid soaps are made with 100% vegetable oils. Our soaps are made with mostly olive oil as its ingredient, and with a combination of other oils like coconut, sweet almond, rice bran, sunflower, castor and cocoa butter.

The combination of oils adds to a overall complexity to the soap that includes bubbliness and moisturizing properties that make our soap wonderful to use.

Are Castile soaps 100% natural?

Yes! Made only with natural ingredients for Tsuki natural handmade bar & liquid soaps: oils of olive, coconut, sweet almond, rice bran, sunflower, castor, palm and cocoa butter. No SLS, no harmful or toxic ingredients ever.

We only use 100% natural essential oils too to scent our soaps and add extra aromatherapy benefits to our soaps. No artificial fragrances or perfumes.

What are the benefits of Castile Soaps?

Commercial bath washes and foams (they don’t call them soaps if they aren’t made from oil + lye) can have a drying effect on the skin because they combine detergents and washing chemicals to create the cleansing effect. For eg, SLS, SLES.

Our Castile soaps are formulated to be extra gentle with moisturizing and nourishing as our primary goal while providing a gentle cleansing. Our soaps may be low foaming, especially our Liquid Castile Soaps, but you will feel the cleansing nature of the soaps without it drying your skin out. Additionally, glycerin is naturally created in the making of soap from oils and is retained in our bar and liquid soaps that adds to its moisturizing properties.

Thus, our soaps are gentle for everyday use, for frequent hand washing and even for your face.
