Pure Castille Soap

 My pure Castille Soap is the simplest and gentlest soap I make.  Two active ingredients: organic extra-virgin olive oil and distilled water. No scent.  Super smooth and hard. Moisturizing.
 
The timing is different to my other soaps as it takes 3 days in the mould before I can even remove it. 
 
Even after 2 days in the mould, if I try to remove it, it is too soft, like butter, my finger would go right into it.  Then I wait until the perfect moment for cutting and stamping?  Ooops… this one was too early…
But wow, what a soap!  Minimal gooey, un-bubbly lather.  Wonderful on dry and sensitive skin.  This used to be a small-quantity experimental soap, but so many testers have come back requesting more that I think I will be including it in my regular line.
Happy soaping everyone!!

Donna, Thank you. You may be right! xo Jen

Isabel, Muchas gracias por tanto entusiasmo!! Wow! xoxo Jen

Milla, You are right, it does look creamy even though the liquid is simply water... and smooth and no air pockets. I wonder if the air pockets/ bubbles that come up in some of my other soaps are really due to the oils? As my Castille soap NEVER gets bubbles, no matter how fast I pour.... xo Jen
