Handmade Soap - Rhassoul Castile
Made with Moroccan mineral mud.
More sensitive souls need special pampering, so using rich oils and a bit of cocoa butter we've created an olive based soap that's very traditional. Olive soaps were some of the first to be made, so we've taken that traditional wisdom and added just a dash of our own experience, adding some cocoa makes a harder, more long lasting bar. We've deliberately not added any essential oils at all so that everyone can use this bar with confidence. To give this one an extra boost we've heaped in as much healing Rhassoul mud as we can get in there. This makes the bar especially soothing for people with irritating skin conditions, the olive oils soothes and the mud heals, it's a winning combination and this is what makes it our best selling soap.

Product Testimonials Handmade Soap - Rhassoul Castile
I bought this soap as a facial cleanser and it's perfect. It produces a lovely creamy lather and gives skin a good clean without drying. Really good value for money. I follow with rose and vanilla cream dream and my skin is like velvet!
I love this soap. I bought a bar last time I was in Penzance to try. I have very dry, eczema prone skin and this has been a joy to use. My skin feels beautifully clean and silky after use. There has been no irritation and no nasty residue feeling on the skin. A lovely product and it feels so good to know there is nothing nasty/cruel about it. Very highly recommended!

My son hasn't like the feel of every soap I've tried, but he barely notices when we use this! It has also now replaced shampoo, for the same reason.
