Are Castile Soap Vegan?
Castile soap is traditionally made with plant based oil like olive oil from the Spain region, Castile, hence the name castile soap. It is a vegan soap because it does not include the addition of animal fats as some other soap might. These days, castile soap is also made with coconut, castor, sunflower and other vegetable oils.
What is Castile Soap?
A castile soap is essentially soap made by saponifying vegetable oils with lye. Traditionally, castile soap are made with olive oil from Spain’s castile region, hence the name castile soap. Over time, a castile soap have taken on a new meaning of soap made with vegetable oils. A pure castile soap is an eco friendly and vegan soap (if it does not contain any animal by products e.g. goat’s milk).
A castile soap can either be found in liquid or bar soap form and both are considered equally good. It really depends on your intended use of it and personal preferences. Castile soap made from natural vegetable oils without added chemical e.g. SLS, SLES are an excellent non toxic cleanser for children and pets.
