Olive Oil Soap
True to name and definition pure Olive Oil soap or Castile Bar Soap has been made in the same manner since the 15th century with a full olive oil base and little else. It is one of the most basic soaps available with our unscented variety containing only three ingredients. We choose to make our olive oil soap from only premium quality 100% pure first cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the same quality most would use on their salad. In our opinion the quality of the soap and the way it feels on the skin are very much effected by the integrity of the ingredients.
Our first cold pressing Extra Virgin Olive Oil Soap is an excellent choice for those trying to avoid ingredients of concern in their personal care products. Carefully handmade in Canada in small batches. Some come to find us by reference when they come to experience skin reactions and their care products become suspect. Determining the cause of a skin reaction can be a daunting task and the use of a very basic exceptional quality soap with few ingredients may help pinpoint aggravants to conditions.
Many Professionals will advise a more basic and pure cleansing product if you are experiencing sensitivity issues. We have heard many a client say "I have been told to use a basic soap". We have had many clients with skin issues report successful use of our pure olive oil bars.
What kind of olive oil is in your Castile Soap?
Things you should know when you are shopping for a pure olive oil or true castile soap.
1. Is the soap truly "Castile"? True Castile Soap is made from 100% pure olive oil, not vegetable oil blends which have become mainstream as of late. Many soap makers, even organic ones have come to refer to vegetable oil blends as "castile" which is not true by definition. Be diligent, keep informed, read ingredient lists even if you need a magnifying glass!
2. Is the soap made from "quality" Olive Oil? Research the variety of olive oil used in the making of the soap. Most are made from less expensive solvent extracted oil varieties like inferior "Olive Pomace".
3. Is the soap truly "unscented"? Many “unscented soaps” are not unscented at all and still contain a small amount of parfum or fragrance oil. Read labels, ask questions. Our pure Olive Oil soap smells like Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 100% of the oil in the recipe.
Pure olive oil soap has a different feel than other soaps. It has a very fine lather with a creamy texture on the skin, similar to a lotion and therefore can be used for several purposes. If you wish to generate more lather from this bar we suggest purchasing an inexpensive body buffer puff which we offer below.
Olive Oil soap may be used as a baby soap, for sensitive or easily irritated skin and for those with limiting sensitivities. It makes a very nice one-step shampoo and conditioning bar especially for those with fine hair. Lathers very well on the hair leaving it soft, shiny and manageable. Pure olive oil soap also makes a gentle wash for fine woolens as well as being a key ingredient in the making of all natural homemade laundry soaps when in grated form.
We very reasonably price our Olive Oil bars for family use offering bargain priced slabs with a minimum of 8 full bars in each slab. All of the unscented bars on this website are offered at a lower price. We are passing on the savings to you being that there are no essential oils used in those recipes. If you are ordering up to 4 slabs we may be able to ship at a discounted cost of $17.99 including GST in a Canada Post flat rate box. Please contact us for details.
All of our bars are hand cut to the following approximate weights:
Full Size Bar: 88g Half Bar: 43g Guest Bar:
Economical discounted soap loaf you will receive an Eight Bar Slab:
Minimum weight: 710g
Please note: For the first time in 6 years we are forced to raise our prices site-wide. This is a necessary adjustment due to the steadily increasing ingredient costs and our insistence on keeping the same quality and integrity in our products. We are one of the few soap makers anywhere offering food quality sodium hydroxide in our recipes.
For our current clients please contact us by email if you were not aware of the increase and we will make adjustments as necessary. Thank you for your understanding and appreciating that great ingredients make truly great soap!

Please Note: As our Olive Oil Soaps are naturally rich in emollients and we do not use any preservatives, dyes or colourants you may find naturally occurring yellowing in the bar or a small orange dot on the soap during times of high humidity. This only effects the appearance of the soap and should you prefer the discolouration may be cut from the bar.
**Soaps made from vegetable oils are very pliable and may be carefully cut into smaller pieces as they have a texture similar to that of semi-hard cheese. If purchasing our Olive Oil soap in slab form you may wish to cut into smaller pieces upon receipt as the soap will become quite hard over time as it sits and will therefore be more difficult to cut.
