What is the difference between castile soap and regular soap?

Updated: Mar 19, 2023

Castile Soap got its name from the Castile Region in Spain. Before its widespread use throughout the United States and Europe, it was traditionally made with olive oil.

Whole Naturals Castile Soap stays true to the custom of being made primarily from olive oil. We have also added some superior carrier oils for additional nourishing and moisturizing effects. And the best part: Whole Naturals is the first Castile Soap Company in the United States to be certified Palm Oil Free!

Now, let's talk about the most significant differences between Castile Soap and regular soaps and how Whole Naturals will benefit your entire household!

Castile Soap VersuS Traditional Soaps & Detergents

Whole Naturals Castile Soap:

  • 100 % Natural ingredients! Whole Naturals Castile Soap is a natural, liquid cleaning product. It is made from an Organic blend of prickly pear, argan, jojoba, olive, almond, and hemp oils.

  • Plant-based: Whole Naturals Castile soap is created using ONLY natural plant oils. Our special formula contains luxury oils that are a source of vitamins, antioxidants, and Omega fatty acids.

  • Biodegradable: Unlike detergents, Castile Soap can be used for grey-water irrigation and won't harm your water sources

  • Vegan: Confidently purchase our Castile Soap with the knowledge that not only is our soap vegan-free, it's also gluten and dairy free - and NEVER tested on animals!

  • One Bottle - Many Uses: Our concentrated solution arrives in a recyclable bottle. Because it's so versatile not only do you save on buying more and more products, but you also reduce plastic waste!

  • Nourishing: Castile Soap's formulation of nourishing carrier oils adds moisture, leaving your skin supple and smooth

Traditional soaps & detergents:

  • Unknown ingredients: Some traditional soaps and detergents contain animal-based products.

  • Environmental Effects: Harsh chemicals can leak into the ecosystem. Adding to the pollution in our oceans, lakes, and rivers.

  • ONE BOTTLE - ONE USE: Because each traditional soap or detergent is tailored for a specific use in mind, you're forced to buy many different products - each customized to do a specific job. Increasing plastic waste and impacting your wallet!

Not Like Any Other Soap

When you purchase Whole Naturals Castile Soap, you're not just choosing a basic soap for handwashing. You're being conscientious about the soaps that you're using throughout your home, for your pets, and for yourself.

Unlike traditional soaps and detergents, Castile Soap contains no dyes or artificial scents making it an outstanding choice for every member of your family.

Whole Naturals Castile Soap is concentrated, which means more soap per bottle and less waste in packaging materials. We are so happy you've made the sustainable choice!
