Kirks castile soap

Good soap, but needs a little fragrance added.

3 bars for $2.50 at Safeway- I’ll take it!   Have I  told anyone recently that I enjoy buying and hoarding soap?   This is soap for the kitchen sink.  There’s no  scent to it, yet your hands feel so clean after using it.  I’m glad Safeway carries it.  On their FAQ page it says there is fragrance in the soap, but  whatever it is, it sure is unrecognizable.

Here’s the ingredients:

Coconut Oil, Soap of Coconut, Vegetable Glycerin and Water. Kirk’s bar is made by a centuries-old, time honored process by mixing coconut oil with caustic soda. Caustic soda is made from sea salt. Coconut oil is thus converted to coconut soap, which is technically called sodium cocoate. During the process of making coconut soap, glycerin is also produced since glycerin is a part of natural coconut oil. This glycerin is left in Kirk’s soap to give moisturization properties and make it less harsh to skin compared to other commercial soaps in which this natural glycerin is removed by a chemical separation process. Kirk’s soap is the most natural process soap made in the USA today.

From their website:

Original  Castile Bar Soap

Since 1839, Kirk’s Original Coco Castile Soap has given the consumer a high quality, all natural soap at an affordable price. Current national market research ranks Kirk’s Original Coco Castile Soap as the top selling all-natural bar soap.

“Castile” originally referred to the highly-prized vegetable based soap produced in Castile, Spain. For centuries this soap was considered “the soap of royalty” because of its luxurious lather and gentleness to the skin. Today, “Castile” refers to any vegetable based soap.
