A quick introduction to the Castile soap
We receive several questions from our community in regards to this multi-use soap, so here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions:
Is our Castile soap true to the original recipe?
Castile soap dates back hundreds of years. Originating from the region of Castile in Spain, it was originally made from olive oil. Instead, we chose to use sunflower oil for several reasons. The first is very simple: there is an abundance of sunflower oil produced in Canada, which allows us to make this soap from local ingredients. We, therefore, encourage local producers, in addition to reducing our environmental impact by avoiding importing large quantities of olive oil. Furthermore, sunflower oil is rich in vitamin E, acting as an antioxidant for the body, improving the appearance of the skin while promoting cell regeneration.
