All Greencastle soaps are made with 30% olive oil and, with daily use, will help soften and moisturize your skin. Some soaps, with the addition of certain essential oils or other additives may be useful in treating acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, itching, scaling and redness.
Often,the beauty of handmade soap is in what it lacks: no sodium lauryl sulfate, no fixatives, preservatives, chemical hardeners, foam stabilizers, detergents, waxes, anti-bacterial agents or harsh fragrances.
The effectiveness of hand-crafted soap may be simply because it's simple! Made with just a few quality ingredients....nothing very harsh going on here.
By the way: ALL soaps are anti-bacterial. Mixed with water soap lifts dirt, oil and germs away from the skin and washes it away. Adding a chemical like Triclosan (found in many OTC liquid soaps) does nothing to improve a soap's anti-bacterial quality. It does, however,promote the evolution of even tougher more resistant bacteria and may be an endocrine disruptor according to recent studies. Just wash your hands folks, with plenty of hot water and good soap!
