We all love surprises!
We don’t get many surprises these days, so this is one of those times where you leave the scent choice up to Mrs Balmy.
What is Castile Soap?
Our Castile Soap is based on the traditional Spanish recipe for Castile Soap. What this means is that it’s as simple as soap gets. It contains as few as 3 ingredients; distilled water, sodium hydroxide, and olive oil. That’s it!
The range of natural castile soap bars also include essential and/or fragrance oils, and mineral mica (colourant).
With this in mind, Castile Soap is not designed to produce a lot of lather, so the ‘bubbliness’ of this soap is still less than the store bought soap you would otherwise find.
Castile Soap is traditionally much softer than other soaps, but will actually harden over time, making it last longer. Therefore, if you take care to store it properly, it’ll last well. Whilst some of the scent may dissipate over time, the soap is totally safe to use, and can sit there for years. Have a read of the blog post I wrote on Soap Storage to give you some more background on this.
Our castile soap is cured for at least 6 months.
What is Nourish Soap?
Our Nourish range of soap contains coconut oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, apricot kernal oil, and vitamin e. This is a delicious, nourishing combo for your skin! Furthermore, we do not use palm oil in any of our products.
The only ‘non natural’ ingredients in these bars is the addition of mica (a mineral colourant) and some fragrance oils. We have available Nourish bars with essential oils (without any fragrance oil added). Although, at this stage, they all contain mica.
This range is also gentle enough for your face, should you choose to use it for this purpose.
Castile Ingredients: Olive oil, distilled water, sodium hydroxide, essential/fragrance oils.
Nourish Ingredients: Coconut oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, water, sodium hydroxide, essential/fragrance oils, vitamin e, mineral mica.
