Organic castile soap bars made from certified organic ingredients and Lavender essential oil.
We have been soap makers for about 9 years, starting out with bar soaps, moving on to liquid soaps, and now due to popular request we have brought out soap bars using our 100% OLIVE OILS.
This LONG LASTING soap bar, often called SAVON MARSEILLE, is an olive oil only soap bar, MILD ENOUGH TO USE ON THE MOST SENSITIVE SKIN and perfect for people with chemical sensitivities.
Many guys (and girls) are now discovering these bars are perfect for producing that nice creamy foamy lather, perfect for shaving.
Our soap has been made from ORGANIC olive oil and has been scented with LAVENDER, imparting a delicate FLOWERY scent.
As you may know not all soap is the same, there is a world of difference between the above handmade bar and the soap bar you buy in the supermarket.
Handmade soap bars use vegetable oils as opposed to tallow (an animal fat) and artificial fragrances. Our bars need to "cure" for 6 weeks before they are ready to use. In the handmade soap making process vegetable glycerine is retained in the bar, giving the soap extra moisturising properties. In commercial soap making the glycerine is syphoned off and sold seperately.
Different vegetable oils impart different properties to your soap bar. The ultimate in handmade soap is a soapbar made from olive oil. These bars produce a soft creamy lather and are the most gentle on your skin out of all soapbars. They are called Castile soap after an olive growing region in Spain where soap bars made exclusively from olive oil first appeared hundreds of years ago. Our handmade soap bars have a unique soothing action with mild antiseptic properties. Hypoallergenic, they cleanse, refresh, and revitalize your skin naturally. A complete natural formulation suitable for all types of skin.
