Olive rich formulas known as Castile Soap originally come from a region in Spain. Warm weather with cold breezes created the perfect condition for olives to grow. In the United States, California and Arizona are the perfect places to grow and why we choose to purchase our Olive Oil from there.
For us here at MoSoap, Castile soap is considered soap that is made with a 65% or higher percent of olive oil. Some modern soapmaking companies consider any soap made with vegetable oil a castile soap, but not us! Olive oil is not cheap and that's why we make a separate category for Olive Oil soap because they are special. A different lather is created, one that is gentle and small, and one that so many people love.
