100% Ylang Ylang Castile Soap

100% olive oil castile soap is one of my favorite soaps. Its extremely mild lather is very good for sensitive skin, children skin and even baby skin. I love using castile soaps in winter because it's not only gently cleansing but also nourishing my skin.

Castile soap doesn't have large bubbles like coconut or castor oil based soaps do. Its lather is pretty creamy, yet more viscous. See how I lathered a castile soap...

100% Castile soap is amazing! =)  

Ingredients: 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Yoghurt, Ylang Ylang Fragrant Oil.

  1. Hi there !
    You make such a lovely soaps!I´m amazed!
    This Castile soap is amazing too!
    I´m glad I found you ,I want to communicate more about soap,if you´d like.
    Have a great week!

  2. Hi Anita!
    wow wow! I love How Castile soap lathers too! It makes unique slimy lather. It looks very nice!!

    PS: I am wondering how do you know about Japanese soaper, Kyoko Maeda, 前田京子. I am happy to know that you know her recipe.
    I have her book. =)

  3. I've tried so hard to like the non-lather of castile soap, but it's challenging. They are wonderful for your skin, but the sliminess is...well..not my cup of tea? Nonetheless, your soap looks beautiful, as does your soap work overall

  4. This looks amazing and what photos - the slimeyness of Castile is something that I still can't decide I like or not but it's so lovely on the skin. Really a very lovely soap indeed.

  5. Wow, thanks a lot for all of your comments. You guys made my day! (you know, today is blue Monday)

    @ Claudia, it's my pleasure. Your soaps are stunning! I love it. =)

    @ Ayu, you won't believe it that Kyoko Maeda(前田京子) is so famous in Taiwan that all of my Taiwanese soapy friends know her! I have her book, too. Two of her soaps that I love the most are Premium Bar and Sunshine Orange.

    @ Coco, I think I am weird coz I love the sliminess so much. Sometimes, I even put the sliminess on my face as a mask, just like how people use "Gamila Secret" soap (www.gamila.com). :P

    @ Celine, I know what you mean. It is really a challenge for most of my friends and family, too. ha~ =)
