Going Castile on Soaps

Castile Soaps

I currently changed my skincare routine to a more “natural” source in someway. Castile soaps have been on the market for years, but is it worth the hype? Other than the “all vegan” and “all natural” theme, what are these types of soaps?

Earth Essentials Pure Castile Soap

Castile soaps are an all-vegetable-based soap was made in the Castile region of Spain from local olive oil. Sometimes castile soap is also called olive oil soap. It is called a vegan product since it did not include components from the traditional type of soap which are from animal fats. True castile soap does not contain harsh synthetic detergents and the best ones don’t add any skin-irritating artificial colorants, fragrances, or preservatives. This particular one from earth essentials is comparable to the Dr. Bronner but half the price!

From a body wash to shampoo and all around cleaner! This does it all! But let’s focus more on the skin benefits. This soap foams up quickly! A few drops on my loafa mixed with water is enough for my whole body. Similar to the Dr. Bronner’s. Giving my skin a good squeaky clean after every wash. It did dry out some of my acne scars which is what I expected and I also noticed my scars fading while I was using this type of soap. The best part was that it controlled or reduced my body odor! Maybe the peppermint scent contributed to that, but hey it works! I tried it as a shampoo, It felt different at first. After shampooing my hair, it made it dry but not like how a regular shampoo would feel. I felt like there was oil in it. But that was fine.

“Foams” up quickly


Another type of castile soap is a bar type. This is from Dr. Bronner’s. I personally chose the unscented version since my local target had only this variant left on their shelves. This was for babies btw.  It had the same formulation as the earth essentials one minus the scent. The soap lasted me a week, it seem to melt rather quickly. I got this at target for $4.99. It foamed up so much similar to the liquid formula. Dr. Bronner’s was a little bit pricey but they offered various scents to choose from.

What I love about it:

  • All natural ingredients no harmful ingredients
  • Very foamy
  • Peppermint, relaxing scent
  • Fades acne marks
  • With consistent use, reduced acne on my back
  • A little goes a long way. 2-3 drops makes a great lather.
  • Multi-purpose use
  • Smells so fresh (peppermint)
  • Very mild on the face and body
  • It’s only $7.34 at CVS
  • My fave makeup brush and sponge cleaner

I’m loving this soap! That’s all I can say. Thanks so much for stopping by!
