Fast Facts about Castile Soap

facts about castitle soap

My Dear Readers and Fellow Cleaning Enthusiasts,

I'm so happy that you're here, and that you've joined my family and me as we take our journey. We've been through so many changes over the past decade! From watching the offspring grow, to moving across the country (more on that another time). From transitioning to a plant-based lifestyle, and launching Whole Naturals Castile Soap. It has been a whirlwind!!

This week, I wanted to share some fast facts about Castile Soap. So, buckle up as I unveil the (not-so) secret ingredients - the organic carrier oils that combine together to make this magical elixir.

What is Castile Soap?

Castile Soap has existed for centuries, named for the Castile Region of Spain where the heartiest and tastiest olives were used to make Castile Soap. Over time, Castile Soap manufacturers have incorporated additional oils to the process. Whole Naturals Castile Soap is a vegan, liquid soap, made without synthetic ingredients, and artificial scents. Our list of organic oils include olive oil, argan oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, hemp oil, almond sweet oil, apricot kernel oil, and prickly pear oil. Who knew that the oils you drizzle over your salads, or use to moisturized your skin, could also combine together to double as a top-notch cleaner? If you're a skeptic, I totally understand. How can oils clean? Don't they leave a greasy residue?

Castile soap is not a disinfectant, it doesn't kill the germs, but it removes dirt, grease and germs from surfaces, allowing you to easily wipe them away.

Castile soap is like the Swiss Army knife of cleaning products. Need to scrub the bathtub? Check. Doing the dishes? Double check. Want to freshen up your fruits and veggies? You guessed it, Whole Naturals Castile Soap has got you covered. Did we mention laundry?

Is Castile Soap Unscented?

While our Castile Soap is an unscented product - which means that there are no added artificial scents or perfumes, it is made up of organic and naturally scented carrier oils, which do have a scent - but it's a natural scent. Additionally, because our product is made with certified organic ingredients it's not unusual for different batches to have slightly different scents and different colors. The plant-based oils are harvested at different times during the season, which could also account for varying scents and tone changes - this does not affect its efficacy, and over time, you will find that the smell does dissipate. I can't forget to mention that with a few drops of your favorite essential oil, you can turn this cleaning powerhouse into a home deodorizer that'll have your place smelling like a spa in no time! (I LOVE using citrus scents for home cleaning projects).
