All of the Possible Ways to Use Castile Soap
As a body wash, Castile soap is much less likely to strip the natural oils from our skin. Traditional lard-based soaps often lead to excessively dry skin and other related dermatological problems because of their tendency to strip these necessary oils and destroy the skin’s microbiome, its protective layer of defense. Many people who have struggled with dry skin for years have found that switching to Castile soap has improved or solved their dry-skin woes. Read more about using Castile soap as body wash.
Another one of our favorite uses for liquid castile soap is as a shampoo. Castile soap’s unique properties mean it is very effective at providing a deep clean without stripping your hair’s beneficial natural oils. However, the one exception is for people with color-treated hair. Typically using castile soap is not recommended for those with color-treated hair as the soap can strip the hair of artificial color (here is an all-natural shampoo option that is safe for color-treated hair). But if you do not have color-treated hair, or if you are not concerned with pigment loss, then liquid castile soap maybe the shampoo for you. Read more about using Castile soap as shampoo.
Washing Dishes by Hand or in the Dishwasher
Using our new Lactosoapcillus Probiotic & Vegan Castile Soap as dish soap (and even automatic dishwasher detergent!) couldn’t be easier or more affordable. Castile soap is highly concentrated, so a little goes a very long long way. And because it is made with a base of organic oils and skin-loving probiotics, your hands will thank you, as well. You can even choose which of our three available scents you like best, or start with unscented castile soap and add your own essential oils for a customizable fragrance!
