Nurturing skin at any age is about proper hydration and gentle cleansing. Our soaps contain no harsh chemicals that will dry your skin. Just soothing ingredients that nurture you, naturally!
We use one oil in our soap, and one oil only – certified organic extra virgin olive oil. Why do we only use extra virgin olive oil and not a blend of oils? When we stumbled on the recipe for authentic castile soap, we were intrigued by the fascinating history behind the product. Once we tried our first bar, we were hooked on the gentle way it moisturizes and pampers your skin, so we decided to remain true to the original formula. The history of castile soap can be traced to the 11th century. We asked ourselves, “what type of oil would be used back then?” The answer – organic extra virgin olive oil.
After experiencing the quality of our bar soaps, customers asked if we could make a liquid version of organic castile soap. It took us over a year to develop a product that met our quality standards. We are happy to say our liquid organic castile soap is our best selling product. We found most recipes for handmade or DIY liquid soap were either made from a prefabricated base or from a liquified bar of soap. Most commercial brands are thin and made from a blend of oils. Our base is handmade in small batches specifically for liquid soap, producing a rich, thick soap that makes a great head to toe body wash. Customers tell us they use it as shampoo and shaving soap. And, like our bar soap we only use certified organic extra virgin olive oil as the carrier oil, not a blend. Authentic castile soap is made from one oil – certified organic extra virgin olive oil. Penns Hill Soap is all natural, vegan and cruelty free.
“Our mission is to create the best authentic castile soap by staying true to the original formula and using the finest certified organic oils. We don’t just make castile soap, we make castile soap better.”
