Authentic Castile Soap is made with only 100% olive oil. It is a labor intensive bar requiring a 4- 6 month cure time and has a sparce, flat, slippery lather that many people find unappealing, myself included.
Buttermilk Baby is my version of a Castile-inspired soap, suitable for babies and anyone who wants an extremely gentle bar of soap. My recipe includes a dollup of coconut and castor oils to boost the lather and raw shea butter for extra conditioning. And I replace the water in the recipe with buttermilk to take this bar right over the top. The result is one fabulous bar of soap.
Features & Benefits:
- I've added raw honey, a humectant - it attracts moisture to the skin - and oatmeal, which is very soothing.
- Olive oil is legendary for being hypoallergenic and will not clog pores.
- This bar has a super creamy lather that is gentle enough for even the most sensitive of skin, yet robust enough to make the whole family happy.
- The bar is handstamped with a little bird and packaged in a cotton drawstring bag handstamped with a man-in-the-moon image. Suitable for gift giving.
