extra mild & soothing

Product Description

When you first use this soap you probably won’t believe its a bar.

Sounds strange we know, but the lather is so thick and creamy you’ll swear you were washing with a cream or gel.

In fact, some of our testers have even likened the texture of this soap to aqueous cream. Unlike with aqueous cream though, you will feel ‘clean’ after washing, and won’t be blocking your skin’s natural functions with mineral oil.

Made simply with olive oil, coconut milk, carrot oil, unrefined cocoa butter and water, this silky and soothing soap really will make washing a pleasure again for those with sensitive skin.

Did you know?

This ‘vegan goat’s milk soap’ is mild enough for use on the face, and suitable for all skin types.

It also makes a great lubricator for wet epilating: the formula is extra gentle and soothing, yet not overly foamy, so you can see what you’re doing.

Each bar weighs at least 115 grams, and measures approximately 10 x 5.5 x 2.5 cms.

Being handmade and totally natural, our soaps vary a little in size and colour from bar to bar and batch to batch .

    I can't rate this soap highly enough, my daughter has always had dry skin and the back of her hands would get red and sore. Since using this wonderful soap it has improved 100%, it's amazing! In fact all the soaps aimed at sensitive skin have the same effect.

    Got this as a free sample as part of my order, I wasn't expecting it to have a nice pleasant smell but it does! Its very creamy and doesn't lather much, which I like. Actually leaves my skin moisturised without any residue. Lovely overall!

    I found that this soap did not foam at all and I could actually see slime coming off onto my hands when I tried to use it. I had to throw it away after a couple of unsuccessful attempts at using it. Based on the good reviews this soap has received, it may have been a faulty batch. This was part of a box of soaps that I had ordered, and four other soaps from the box I have used so far were fine, so I don't know what went wrong! Still, a pretty baffling and unpleasant experience.

      Hi Bo, Thanks very much for taking the time to write a review. So sorry to hear you didn't like this soap. This and our other castile soap, the Castile Olive Oil, are totally different from the rest of the range. They are indeed low-foaming and can feel quite odd to use if you've never used anything like them before. This is because they are coconut oil free and while very effective cleaners, do not produce the same bubbles that people often associate with soap. The Castile Olive Oil soap is often described by our customers as having a 'lotion-like' lather, while the Coco Castile does indeed feel more like a gel. We understand that this is not to everyone's taste and I'm sorry that you did not like this soap. The Coco Castile will always feel gel-like in use. To reduce the amount of 'gel' produced though you can try to keep the bar as dry as possible (ie not leave it under the water stream for as short a time as possible, and store it as far away as possible from the shower stream). Some customers also put the bar down once they've created the gel they want and then use this to wash with. Happy to hear the other soaps are working well for you though so far. We'll drop you quick email now to see if there's anything else we can do to help.

    I was sceptical about using a bar soap to start with and initially my skin felt very dry. However I persevered and my skin has adjusted. This soap leaves my skin feeling soft and is delicate enough for my face too. It is gel like but if you keep adding a little water to your hands it will lather. Goodbye to two bottles of expensive gel washes and hello to a long lasting bar! ?
