Castile soap is made from vegetable oil, rather than from animal fat or synthetic detergents. Originally it was made from pure, olive oil from the Castile region. Although olive oil is the traditional base oil, the soap can also be made with coconut, hemp, avocado, almond, walnut and many other vegetable oils.
