Cold processed soap made with the following ingredients:
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Not all Castile soaps are created equal.
We use 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Simpler Thyme® Castile Soap with no added filler oils.
The solvent extracted grade olive oil called pomace is never used. After cold pressing the olives for extra virgin, virgin and regular olive oil pomace is the last 10% oil collected. Pomace is extracted in refineries that use heat and/or chemical processes to remove this lowest grade last extraction of the olives which results in a very dark green soap.
If heat and/or chemical processes are used to produce the olive oil, it cannot be called Virgin or Extra Virgin olive oil.
Even though Pomace is the least expensive olive oil available, we choose to use Extra Virgin Olive Oil for our Castile Soap.
The lather is very creamy and lovely on the skin, but not as profuse as our blended oil bars.
It's a good bar to shave with.
The most gentle of all soaps for babies and those that are extremely sensitive.
Fragrance Free - Unscented (no masking fragrance oils ever used)
Color varies from light cream to light green depending on the olive oil crop with a slight natural scent of the olive oil.
