Handmade Soap - Unscented Castile
80% Olive oil soap
More sensitive souls need special pampering, so using rich olive oil and a bit of cocoa butter we've created a 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, longer lasting bar. We've deliberately not added any essential oils at all so that everyone of any age can use this bar with confidence. Olive is a particularly soft oil and while it cleans your skin beautifully, it doesn't strip it of it's own moisture, meaning it's especially great for anyone that suffers with any type of skin condtion, such as eczema or psoriasis. As it's only got two ingredients, it's also ideal for the allergy-prone as it really limits the amount of things you can possibly react to.
These bars are now in our big square blocks, not the round puck that's in the photograph, we're just getting those re-done.

Product Testimonials Handmade Soap - Unscented Castile
I absolutely love this soap, I've had eczema since birth and never been able to use soap and can't use the emollients that the doctors recommend, this has totally changed my world. Best thing ever :)
Oh Sarah, that's just wonderful to hear, thanks so much for letting us know. Sometimes less really is more, isn't it? Fewer ingredients, simpler compounds, our skin can just deal with it easier. So glad you're more comfortable and thanks again for taking the time to write a review, they really do mean the world to us. - The Pure Nuff Stuff Team
I always put one these soaps in my order for a friend whose eczema disappeared once he started using it. More a hair and body bar person myself....all amazing
Thank you so much Claire! - The Pure Nuff Stuff Team
Beautifully creamy and kind to dry and damaged skin. Love it!
I have pretty bad eczema and this stuff really helps! This is now the only soap I use - I even make sure to have a spare so I bring it on vacation with me.
Finally found a cleanser for my four year old daughter. I honestly think the last time the inside of her elbows and the back of her knees were this clear and healthy, was when she was about 5 months old. Fabulous product for poorly skin (also brilliant for shaving legs -mummy's, not the four year old!).
Love that clarification there Asha and thanks very much for the review! - The Pure Nuff Stuff Team
