The Scent-Free Movement


When we started making soap, our first batch was an unscented organic bar.  We followed a recipe that was made from extra virgin olive oil and water.  Simple and very effective.  Fast forward to present day and we have added scented bars and liquids that get their scent from certified organic essential oils.  Good idea?  We thought so, but guess what?  Our best selling products by far are the unscented bar and liquid soaps.  Knock me over with a feather!  In my wildest dreams, I would never guess the unscented soap would be such a blockbuster success compared to the scented products.

Eugenia from Albuquerque, New Mexico wrote – “I love this soap, I use it for everything. I’m allergic to coconut and this is a perfect product for me. I make my own laundry detergent, dishwasher soap and dish soap, I use this in all those things. It’s perfect for me. Thank you for making a pure soap that MCS people can use.”

Eugenia, we are thrilled you love our product.  We are happy to create something that improves life for you.  We take special care in keeping and preparing our unscented soaps separate from our Unscented Organic Castile Bar Soap With Organic Oats Exfoliantscented varieties.  We are open to suggestions to expand the unscented line.  Currently we offer bars with organic oats.  Do you have anything you might like that would add a benefit without adding a scent?  Aloe?  Seaweed?  Let us know!

  1. How about making lightly scented versions of your scented soaps by adding lavender buds, vanilla bean, rosemary or eucalyptus bits to your unscented soaps. Could also add to your scented line as well

    • Thank you Nikolaos. We are always appreciative of our customer’s input.

      We use an authentic cold process for our organic olive oil castile bar soaps. We attempted to put flower buds in the soap but they changed color and were unattractive. The only botanicals that have worked well to date are organic oats and organic cinnamon (ground). Keep thinking and sharing, we appreciate it!

    • Thank you Nikolaos for your suggestion. We offer scented bar soaps that are lightly scented with organic essential oils. We tried adding organic buds but found they tended to discolor and looked unattractive. We also found that the buds lost any fragrance during the process.
