100% EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL SOAPS

Andalucia Soap Company natural Castilla soap is made with 100% extra virgin olive oil. Not just any oil, but an exceptional unfiltered oil from a small producer who has his grove very close to our factory here in Málaga province. We have become good friends with the producers who supply us with their "green gold" and we are very proud to be able to obtain such high quality ingredients for these products. Real castile was the first soap made with vegetable oil instead of animal fats and it soon became clear that olive was the superior oil for fine soap. The name Castile has been sadly corrupted and abused over the years with many companies and soap makers using either low grade solvent extracted oil designated for industrial purpose, or only a small percentage of the real stuff along with cheap filler oils such as palm, canola etc. If you are looking for the real thing then make sure that it is made only with extra virgin olive and nothing else!. The soaps you will find here, as with all of our soaps, are handmade, pure and free from harsh detergents and surfactants and a pleasure to use. After cutting and stamping by our master soap maker, they are stacked to cure for several weeks in the warm mediterranean sun before being sold. These are the finest, true Spanish soaps available.

OLIVE OIL SOAP BENEFITS

Pure Andalucian olive oil soaps have a very creamy and gentle lather, making them extremely mild and gentle and suitable for the most sensitive of skin types, even babies and small children. They are excellent for people who suffer from allergies and sensitivities to synthetic detergent ingredients that are found in most skin care products these days. As with all of our natural soaps, this classic castile collection is made in a cold process whereby the oil is not heated above ambient temperature so as not to destroy its moisturising benefits. During this process a high percentage of natural glycerin is produced. Glycerin is a natural humectant and a great moisturiser and due to the fact that we use un-filtered oil means that there is a fair amount of suspension (tiny olive fruit particles) left in the oil that adds a mild and creamy richness that sets these soaps apart from the rest.

ETHICAL, SUSTAINABLE, LOW IMPACT and BIO DEGRADEABLE

The ingredients used in these products are completely ethical and sustainable, in fact everything is of Spanish origin except for one or two of the essential oils that we include in the fragranced soaps. The cold process method of production we employ in the making of these bars is extremely low impact and apart from the man power involved, no electricity or other power source is used in their production. They are 100% biodegradable and we ensure that no animal testing has been carried out on any of our ingredients.
