True Castile soap has only olive oil as the fat source. Some makers are trying to redefine castile soap as any plant-based soap but our Castile bars stick to the original methods of only olive oil as the fat in the saponification process. We add other nourishing additives like oat extracts and aloe vera to balance the bars and create the most pleasant experience possible!
Ingredients: Saponified- *Olive Oil, *Oat Extract, *Colloidal Oats, *Pumpkin Powder, Sodium Lactate, less than .5% blended essential oils of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and pumpkin extract.
PLEASE NOTE: Bars containing a larger amount of oatmeal tend to create a film on the bar while it’s wet that may be thought of as “slimy”. Do not worry, this is just the oats doing their thing! You will feel how nourishing the soap is on your skin and then simply allow the bar to thoroughly dry out in between showering.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER– Sodium hydroxide is required in order to yield bar soap. We use sodium hydroxide but because there is none left in the finished product we omit listing it as a final ingredient. The chemical reaction between sodium hydroxide and fats (saponification) is what creates this wondrous cleansing masterpiece. If you purchase a bar from a company and it was not made using sodium hydroxide/lye then you are not purchasing a soap bar but rather a detergent bar.
When soap is made properly you are left with only a beautiful bar of sudsy goodness and no sodium hydroxide/lye.
