Castile Soap Uses and Benefits




                 Castile Soap is a natural soap originating from Castile Spain. Unlike most soap which are made from animal fats, Castile soap is plant based, produced from oils such as olive, coconut and hemp. Castile Soap like most soaps are considered alkaline because they usually register at about 8.9 on the pH scale. Because Castile Soap is non toxic and slightly alkaline it can be used without wearing gloves while cleaning and will even have a rejuvenating effect on skin. Castile Soap is soo versatile it is commonly used to clean tough messes around the house and is even used as a staple health and beauty product.




 So just how does Castile Soap work? According to an article by, “Soap is made up of molecules with two very different ends. One end of soap molecules love water - they are hydrophilic . The other end of soap molecules hate water - they are hydrophobic. Hydrophobic ends of soap molecule all attach to the oil. Hydrophilic ends stick out into the water. This causes a drop of oil to form:These drops of oil are suspended in the water. This is how soap cleans your hands - it causes drops of grease and dirt to be pulled off your hands and suspended in water. These drops are washed away when you rinse your hands.”
Also soap is known to cause bacteria to loosen its grip soo it can be washed away making soap and water the original way to wash away germs and bacteria.
