What is Castile Soap?
Centuries ago in the Castile region of Spain an all-vegetable-based soap was made. Plentiful, local olive-oil inspired the recipe and set it apart as a soap not made from animal-fat (tallow). With great versatility and natural cleaning power, this tried-and-true formula has become commonly known as Castile Soap.
