Cold process soap made with 100% Olive Oil is known as “Castile” soap. It is thought to have originated in the Castile region of Spain; thus the name, Castile Soap! Olive Oil contributes moisturizing properties to soap. It also gives the bars a gentle and creamy lotion like lather with small, tight bubbles, making it a great choice for dry or sensitive skin. It is the most luxurious feeling soap we've ever made.
What is bastille? Bastille is a term affectionately coined by soapers for soap that is made with a high percentage of Olive Oil. While Castille is 100% Olive Oil soap and Bastille is soap made with 70% (or more) Olive Oil but contains other oils or butters. Our Bastille soap is made using only Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Organic Coconut Oil. We create recipes that balance carefully between cleansing & moisturizing. Cleansing is accomplished by the abundant bubbles of coconut, while moisturizing is achieved through a our base of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
