What is Organic Soap and Why Does it Matter?

Updated: Jul 9, 2023

Consumer trends have undergone huge changes in the past 80 years!! Let’s start by taking a walk back in history. In the 1940s, food production became industrialized. Conventional farming focused on utilizing pesticides, fertilizers, and insecticides to maximize crop yields. Transportation became more efficient, which also meant that we were eating food that traveled cross country. It was great! Consumers could have strawberries all year long!

Over time, we have become more aware of our carbon footprint and have opted to purchase locally sourced products. Healthy and sustainable lifestyle changes have been subtle. Consumer habits have been undergoing subtle changes, choosing health, and household products that avoid the use of detergents, toxins, and other synthetic products.

One step in this effort is choosing organic soaps for our skincare routine. As soaps seep into every pore of your skin, it makes sense to choose organic soaps that benefit you – from your head to your toes! Now, let’s dive in to learn what is organic soap – and why does it matter?

Organic Soaps are Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly

The definition of an organic product is that it is manufactured with the addition of toxic chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Because Whole Naturals Castile Soap only uses plant-based ingredients produced with organic farming practices – verified by EWG, you can be assured that all ingredients are biodegradable, and will not affect the water supply or soil.

Healthier Skin

With the use of plant-based oils, carrier oils and glycerin, Castile soap’s ingredients help hydrate, and moisturize your skin. With no phthalates, detergents, fragrances, foaming agents, or dyes, organic soaps are healthier for your skin. We have chosen the best nourishing, organic carrier oils including fair trade organic coconut oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Organic Argan Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic USP Vegetable Glycerin (Flaxseed Derived) Organic Almond Sweet Oil, Organic Apricot Kernel Oil, and Organic Prickly Pear Oil. Olive Oil is rich in fatty acids. Fatty acids will not strip your skin’s natural oils and you leave your skin feeling dry and flaky.

Dealing with Allergies?

We understand how important it is for our Whole Naturals Castile soap to be free of potential allergens! As Allergies and sensitivities are so important to address, our Pure Liquid Castile Soap is not only grain, dairy, and soy free, it's also gluten-free and vegan! (and cruelty-free - never tested on animals). It’s the perfect soap for washing everything – from your hair to your floors!

Palm Oil & Cruelty-Free

We are concerned about the rainforest and animal welfare. That’s why we chose to partner with POFCAP to be the Whole Naturals is the only Castile Soap Company in the World to be third-party Certified Palm Oil Free. We rely on plant-based oils to create a product that is vegan-free and never tested on animals.

Whole Naturals Castile Soap is Rich in Glycerin

Glycerin is used as a humectant in soap products. In other words, adding glycerin to our soap actually helps to ensure that skin maintains its own moisture. It’s non-greasy, and can improve skin texture and strengthen its natural barrier to resist environmental irritants.

Whole Naturals Castile Soap is compatible with every skin type!! Without detergents and foaming agents, it will now leave your skin dry. Because of our choice of high-quality carrier oils, you may find that your skin conditions can even improve.
