A beautiful journey to Castile

To understand what your skin really loves, you must go back to a bathing experience that started centuries back There are many soap advertisements where they talk about how good and soft it is for your skin. Truth be told, the likelihood of such information being misleading is high. Most chemicals used in the modern methods of manufacture are not planet-friendly. Obviously, they do not take care of your skin in the long run. Which is why, we must look to the past for inspiration. More specifically, 11th century Spain. Of all the soap-making processes, none can compare with the goodness of the cold-pressed castile soap. Castile soap is a name used in English-speaking countries for olive oil-based soap. The process is named after the Castile region of Spain, which also produces the best olive oil in the world with its acres of radiant olive farms. The soap comes together through cold-processing, which is the best way to make safe, natural soap. Cold process soap has no added detergents, which strip the skin of its natural oils. It is made through a chemical reaction between lye – sodium hydroxide and oils. Cold process soaps are better for the environment, healthier for the skin and can be made incredibly moisturising. They are bio-degradable. Castile soaps are not only gentle on your skin, but also on the environment as it does not have artificial foaming agents, colours, synthetic fragrances, chemical detergents, petrochemicals and toxic anti-bacterial agents. Vedi castile soaps are 100% vegan. This simply means, you do not have any contact with dangerous chemicals like SLS, Parabens, etc. The goodness of 100% certified organic natural oils tend to your skin even as it cleanses it. The natural fragrance of Vedi soaps will make your bathing experience soothing, blissful and memorable, every time. So, does it lather? Yes, absolutely. Here’s why? Most natural soaps do not produce enough lather and are bubble-free because they do not have Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) in it. This chemical is what makes soap foam up. Many studies have shown that SLS, which is found in most body care products, has adverse health effects. Besides irritating the skin, it can even cause eye damage and depression. SLS is used mostly because it is cheap. While castile soaps do not have any foaming agent, they lather well because of the high fatty acid content in the Organic oils we use. One of the best ways to find out why you should use castile soaps is by using a castile soap first. Words cannot describe the gentleness of this fragrant cold-pressed oil based soap.
