Castile Bar Soap FAQ
Can I use Castile soap to bathe/shower my baby?
- Yes. Castile soap is a very mild soap that won't dry or harm your baby's skin. Since it's made with Organically Grown Extra Virgin Olive Oil, it's free of harmful chemicals.
Can I wash my hair with Castile soap?
- Absolutely. Castile soap was used as an all purpose soap ever since its inception 1400 years ago. It's commonly used as a body soap, but works very well as a hand soap, shampoo and it's wonderful as a facial soap.
What is the pH level of your this soap?
- As all natural well formulated soaps, our soaps have a pH level between 8.5 and 9.
I heard olive oil is wonderful for the body but shouldn't be used on the face because it clogs pore, is this true?
- No. Olive oil is generally non-comedogenic.
Other Castile Soaps have burned and irritated my skin, will this soap do that too?
- Chances are you were in the presence of fake castile soaps made with high amounts of coconut oil, palm or other harsh oils, added to make it lather more. Our Authentic Castile soap is formulated with only Extra Virgin Olive Oil and does not contain palm oil or coconut oil.
What should I do if in eyes?
- Like with any other soap or shampoo, immediately flush with plenty of fresh water. Soaps and shampoos, even this one, are mildly irritant to the eyes. It would burn and sting, if just a little drop falls inside the eye, and probably would get red, but it's just temporary and should go away in no time.
Can True Castile Soap be used to clean or do laundry with?
- No. We leave that task to the fake Castile soaps high in coconut and palm oils.
Is your True Castile Soap like Dr Bronner's All-One Pure Castile Soap?
- Our Castile soap is true and authentic, as it doesn't contain other oils in the formula. True Castile soaps are made using only extra virgin olive oil. None of Dr Bronner's Pure Castile Soaps are actually authentic castile soaps, but regular vegetable soaps containing coconut, palm and other oils in the formula.
