7 benefits of using Castile Soap for the skin & environment

1. Non-toxic:

    One of the best qualities of our organic Castile Soap is its all-natural and organic formulation. Because it’s free from toxic ingredients like artificial foaming agents, preservatives, petrochemicals, synthetic detergents and colours, you’re doing the environment a favour as well as your skin. Most commercial soaps use toxic sulphates to get that lather we're all used to, but castile soap foams naturally - no chemicals needed. Instead, this soap is loaded with high-quality natural organic oils like olive, coconut and castor oil, which naturally cleanse and moisturise the skin.

    2. Safe for sensitive skin:

    Since castile soap is made from safe and organic botanical oils, it’s safe to use for dry and sensitive skin types. It’s also gentle enough for people with skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.

    3. Free radical protection:

    Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage skin cells from harmful substances such as pollution, toxins, smog, dust, cigarette smoke and the sun. Some of the effects of free radicals on our skin are wrinkles, loose and sagging skin and broken blood vessels. Antioxidants are our soldiers against free radicals! Olive oil (our main ingredient) is rich in antioxidants such as vitamins A and E. Regular use of Castile Soap can help protect against the breakdown of skin cells and therefore delay the appearance of wrinkles and advanced ageing.

    4. Naturally hydrating:

    The process of making plant-based soap results in a byproduct known as glycerin, which absorbs water from surrounding air, working to moisturize your skin as naturally as possible. After drying off, your skin will feel incredibly soft and that's all nature doing its work!

    5. Smooth and Soothe dry, irritated skin:

    Plant-based oils, especially olive oil, are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids. By using our Castile Soap regularly, these healthy fats will help replenish moisture in the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin), resulting in supple, glowing skin.

    6. Vegan & Cruelty-free:

    Most commercial soaps are made from animal fats (mostly pig fat), yes that sounds disgusting, but unfortunately it’s true. Our soaps are fully plant-based and made only from botanical oils, and are therefore 100% vegan. Thankfully, animal testing is banned in the EU, but because our soaps are made from organic plant-based oils, they are naturally harmless to humans and animals. Unfortunately, animal testing is still allowed in the US, but by switching to our Castile Soap, you are supporting a movement towards animal safety, as it never requires animal testing.

    7. Eco-Friendly:

    Castile soap is a sustainable and biodegradable product that is safe for the environment, as the soap itself is fully biodegradable and our packaging is made from 100% recycled plastic. By only using organic oils from sustainable organic farmers, the impact on nature and wildlife is also limited, as it causes less pollution from pesticides, fertiliser spraying, and produces less carbon dioxide, as well as less hazardous waste. So by switching to organic skin care products, you are not only doing good for your skin and your internal health, but you are also helping to minimise environmental impact and supporting the sustainability of our environment. Finally, one bottle of Saucha's Castile Soap can replace your body wash, laundry detergent, dish soap, and all-purpose household cleaner, just to name a few :)
