Sandy Hook Soap Factory


Pure Olive Oil soaps create a very fine lather, lotiony and creamy.  Quality castile bar soap makes a very nice one-step shampoo bar, especially for those with fine and delicate hair as it leaves it smooth and silky.  Also makes a nice delicate hand wash for fine woolens.  Our most basic soap. 


A smooth white bar of pure Olive Oil Soap is displayed with a black olive, a rosemary sprig and an organic lavender flower, an exceptional quality pure castile soap made from pure extra virgin olive oil.  The natural presentation is attractive and earthy, like the all natural soap made in Canada by the Sandy Hook Soap Factory.

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.  Keeping with a quality product, all of our soaps are made with premium food quality sodium hydroxide of exceptional purity at about four times the price of technical grade widely used in soap making.  We package in compostable wood cello from sustainable sources with kraft twist ties, jute and wood.



Three large white bars of 100% pure olive oil soap are displayed in front of a three liter can of excellent quality extra virgin olive oil.  The pure castile soap bars are white and creamy and Manitoba made by a local soap artisan creating them by hand in small batches with no dyes, no preservatives and no chemical scents.

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.  Additionally our loyalty discount kicks in with a $50. purchase offering 15% to 20% dependant upon purchase amount.

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.  Our organic olive oil soap is offered pre-cut as it tends to harden quickly and is best to cut at an earlier stage of soapmaking.
