Why Castile Soap ?
The #1 benefit you get from using a castile soap is not getting possible harsh chemicals and carcinogenic synthetics from it.
THE ECOLAIV STORY
Ecolaiv® is a trademark of eco-responsible personal care and household products which are affordable and truly safe for all family members and the planet. They are formulated with pure, earth-derived ingredients, without the use of carcinogens, harsh chemicals or known human toxins.
We started out with homemade True Castile handmade glycerin soaps. They are made by saponifying100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They are natural, non toxic, readily biodegradable and are formulated with dry & sensitive skins in mind. True soap and water are nature’s most natural cleansers.
We leave most of our soaps unscented. When they are scented, we only use quality beneficial essential oils and extracts. You may add your own favorite essential oils to our unscented liquid soaps if you wish to prepare your own do-it-yourself soaps.
Why True Castile Soap ?
If you are allergic to soaps that contain Coconut Oil (Sodium Cocoate) that dries your skin, shift to True Castile soaps. Coconut oil soaps have a good cleaning ability, but it can also be drying to the skin. Our True Castile soaps which are made by saponifying 100% pure olive oil are one of the mildest of all soaps. It is not only mild, but also moistrurizing. We add other natural skin-loving ingredients like shea butter, goat milk, goat milk kefir, beer and herbal extracts on our soap variants. We might as well include himalayan pink salt, french clay, activated bamboo charcoal, oatmeal etc.
WHY GOAT MILK KEFIR SOAP ?
WHY USE TRUE CASTILE GOAT MILK SOAP?
It's simply because with the right soap, other moisturizing products are not as necessary.
With the addition of fresh goat milk into our true castile soap formula, it enhances the moisturizing property of the soap even more. It also adds creaminess when lathering. Goat milk soap is wonderful for people with dry or sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It is also perfect for healthy skin that wants to stay that way.
Goats Milk Soap is renowned for its moisturising and skin healing properties. It is used for centuries to promote youthful skin and reported that even Cleopatra bathed in it.
Once you start using a true castile goats milk soap, you may find that you don’t need to use moisturisers as much as you did previously, due to its natural moisturising properties and also because it contains no detergents, foaming agents, alcohol, artificial colours and fragrances or petroleum by-products.
What is Kefir?
Kefir is a cultured, fermented milk drink with a tart, sour taste. Milk is a good source of protein and calcium, and kefir is no different. It has the added benefits of probiotics. Probiotics are known as ‘friendly bacteria’ that can ease symptoms such as bloating and digestive distress in some people. On skin, Probiotics help to uphold moisture. Kefir naturally contains alpha-hydroxy acids. In soaps, these acids help to slough off dead skin cells by dissolving the ceramides between them, revealing fresher skin underneath. In addition, lactic acid increases the thickness of skin and supports its ability to hold moisture, thus smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
