We created our first few batches of Castile soap using the new shipment of organic extra virgin olive oil we just received! The differences between the non-organic evoo (shown in the photo – the loaf on the left) we had been using and this new organic ingredient (the loaf on the right) are amazing, just look at the color difference! The organic evoo is a much richer and darker green. It also took at least three times longer to reach trace (this part was a bit disconcerting at first, but we reached trace eventually). In the end though, we are extremely pleased with the outcome and the new soap should be a much richer experience for the skin once it has cured.
In the next few weeks, you will see a huge shift on our website as we move inventory around to showcase our new product lines. Stay tuned!
