Description

Did you know?
Caustic potash (also called lye or potassium hydroxide) is used to turn oil into liquid soap but once it has been thoroughly mixed with the oils (4 - 6 hours) the caustic potash is neutralised - no more oil - no more caustic potash - just pure mild safe-to-use liquid soap. All PURESIMPLE liquid soaps are sequestered for 2 - 3 weeks before being sold.

Ingredients

Water, olive oil, caustic potash.

I use this to make my own washing powder and it works really well
Haven't tried.it for anything else yet

Best soap ever!
mild natural scent. Helps my 91 year old grandmother's dry skin (diaper rash). Soothes my eczema and leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturized.
Can be used as is, or add some essential oils and coconut oil to make a body wash. Also cleaned the floors really well.

I have been looking for liquid castile soap for ages in South Africa, and this product is cheap and perfect! Cleans very well, and I will definitely buy this again when I am finished with this bottle.
30/04/2018, By Minette
Only been using for a short while. But very happy so far
27/04/2018, By WBK
Apart from loving the naturalness of the product...it leaves my skin extremely dry. But it's good for the environment will have to over look the dry skin.
25/04/2018, By Machel
This soap is so versatile and I have been having fun making recipes to replace my body wash, shampoo, counter cleaner etc. My husband doesn’t care for it much as a body wash as he feels it’s a “gentle” and non-lathering cleanser but it’s good knowing we don’t have to spend on multiple products, personal and household, and by being environmentally friendly.
12/04/2018, By Rita
I am so grateful that I happened to stumble upon this product. We have parquet flooring and this with a few drops of Soil is a dream! We've used it to wash towels and we're constant;y exploring more ways to use this successfully.

Our wooden floors are looking great. Our house smells like a dream and I can choose non-toxic oils (we have kitties) to add some fragrance.

If I could have a refill station near me to limit the amount of packaging, I would be a happy camper :)
11/04/2018, By Raaziqa
It works great in hoemade shampoo and on dishes. Cleans really well in that sense. But it's not that effective for washing clothes though. It doesn't remove stains and dirt.
03/04/2018, By Larisa
Oh I love this brand! I have bought all their homecare products and I just love the effect it has had on my own itchiness, my dogs' skin conditions and my sinuses. Easy on nature and easy on the senses!
02/04/2018, By Jsdrjsdr
The perfect multi-tasker. Gentle, non - toxic, multi-purpose, exactly what I've been looking for. Been using it for anything from baby laundry, our laundry, dishwasher, floors etc. Doesn't really smell like anything but you can add your own scent with some essential oils. We'll try that once baby's a bit bigger.
31/03/2018, By Zonelle
Very versatile and earth friendly to boot
22/02/2018, By Sonja
Really cleans tiled floors without any nasty artificial smell.
20/02/2018, By Aida
Great for washing clothes and all purpose cleaning. As I cannot stand the smell of commercial detergents, pure simple castile liquid soap has been a life saver.
31/01/2018, By Caroline
Amazing base for cleaning products. I use to clean dishes as well as tiles and have used the soap bar in my laundry detergant. Cleans fantastically!
15/01/2018, By Charissa
I used it to make shower gels and liquid hand soap and it is very gentle on the skin. My kids usually struggle with very dry skin, now not anymore.
14/01/2018, By Monique
I don't really like how it smells, but it doesn't make your laundry smell that way. It's ok as a general cleaner (floors, diluted on counters), but i don't like it for doing laundry... i prefer something with some more cleaning umf behind it. I wanted to make my own handwash and stuff as well but even after adding essential oils, you don't get rid of that castile soap smell...i don't like it.
11/01/2018, By Sharon
I bought thisproduct inthe hope that it would compliment my desire to go all natural with our new little baby. Using it as a laundry detergent as per instructions for a couple of months unfortunately failed to be strong enough for the cloth nappies. It also left my whites & light colours with a yellowish tinge and a slightly waxy/sticky feel on some of the garments.
29/12/2017, By Sonja
This is a great versatile product that you can use as a base to make any cleaner you need, shampoo and even face wash. You don't use it as is on your body but it works great as a base for body products. Thank you for the awesome service you give! My packet arrived in good time and there was free goodies in that I really appreciated.
27/12/2017, By Kirsten
It is my first time purchasing it. I have so far used to it to make a face wash and it was pretty good. Will definitely purchases it again.
07/12/2017, By Lucy
This product is an amazing base for any cleaning product. Just having this, I am able to make my own beauty products and soaps, as well as household cleaning products. It is an essential base for natural DIY products!!
30/11/2017, By ameera
I'm using this product for the 1st time and i just absolutely fell in love with it:-)Thank you!
Thank you so much for the small little surprise and inspiring words you guys made me smile and best of all you made my day:-)
Much appreciate it:-)
14/11/2017, By Maryllia
I’m using this product as 1 of the ingredients to make my own shampoo but it can be used for so many things.
23/10/2017, By Alicia
First time I have tried coconut butter. It certainly has a brilliant coconut taste and i am excited to try mixing it with some other butters like macadamia and almond.
19/10/2017, By Sharon
I bought this product to try out on my washing, as we are expecting our first little one and I wanted an eco-friendly, unscented product for all our clothing. It does a good job on the clothes, doens't leave streaks or marks like one of the powders I tried. I'll add some oils in the future once baby has grown used to fragrances, because I love my washing to smell nice :)
10/10/2017, By Tilly
A simple versatile soap. I use it to make an all purpose cleaner with vinegar and essential oils in a stainless steel spray bottle. Love the subtle scent and non abrasive and non-toxic cleaning potential.
01/10/2017, By Clova
Love using this as the base for all my household products. Great to be able to buy in bulk too. Would love it if FTN could offer some kind of waste free facility where customers could return packaging to be refilled. Obviously tricky with different brands but maybe an option for the future?
17/09/2017, By Patricia
Happy to use this product as a detergent because we live on a farm and our water outflow is a French drain, and I know it's environmentally friendly. I do add some essential oil for a better scent.
15/09/2017, By Jolene
This is the best type of soap. I cant believe it took me this long to discover the most versatile product on the market. I am a minimalist at heart and love that I can finally use ONE product for a whole list of things in my house. This is a must-have for all families. My 3 kids love it too as they no longer have dry skin issues.
11/09/2017, By Shan
I've been looking for pure castile soap for ages. Safer, friendlier than any commercial cleaners and should be a standard for household products. Glad to buy in bulk
07/09/2017, By Terry
I use this as a base for a multitude of home products and cannot be without it.
22/08/2017, By Candice
I love this product! period!
I use it on literally everything!

What i simply do not understand (or maybe i do).. is why the following is being stated:
" this castile cleaner is not suitable for use as a face, hand or body wash"

It contains exactly the same ingredients as in the body wash.
Only difference, the one has "water" the other has "spring water"

Other than this, i will not change this product for anything :)

i use it as body wash, shampoo, pet shampoo (even on my cat that has hotspots and very sensitive allergy prone skin) laundry liquid, floor cleaner, you name it :)
22/08/2017, By Sanet
I bought 1 litre a few months ago and I've enjoyed using it. I've made a few body and face washes, and I've also used it for my ceramic floors. For the body washes, I dilute it with a saline solution (which also thickens it into a gel) and some oil (hemp seed is my favourite). I wish it was a little more foamy and it does have quite an oily smell, but it cleans well enough and it is cost effective.
18/08/2017, By Niki
Good product! Worked well for a natural cleaner. Bit runny and doesn't go that far, but the price point is good so I'll order again.
15/08/2017, By Kaeli
This is all I will use for laundry now. Any other scented powder or gel gives me headaches, but this has a completely neutral smell.
We use 200ml per wash, have never added the vinegar, and it works perfectly. The only time clothes are left with a residue has been when I overfilled the machine.
04/08/2017, By Noems
First try, and very happy with it!
Used it for laundry, machine and handwash. Simply add white vinegar and essential oil (in my case, lavender). Clothes went out great, and for hand wash, my skin not only was not irritated but was so soft!
Will definitely re-order!
01/08/2017, By E
This is the first time I ordered this product, was looking for something more earth friendly. Thank you for the quick delivery and the personal message on the invoice.
26/07/2017, By Carin
Super cleaning product without much effort. Don't have to use much elbow grease. Cleans dirty floors with ease. Also add a bit when washing our dog Axel's blankets, and it gets rid of the "doggy smell"
12/07/2017, By Joan
Wonderful as an alternative for washing powder when commercial washing powder was making my baby's eczema EXPLODE! First tried soap nuts and washing ball as alternatives, but those don't come close to the cleaning power of this castile soap, all the while still being kind to her sensitive skin.
09/07/2017, By Lizanne
I've made shower gel with this Castile soap, it's lovely. Just added some essential oils and it's the perfect, gentle toxin free shower gel that my whole family can use.
05/07/2017, By PS
Great castille soap, good price. We use it for everything from body wash to shampoo. Little bit goes a very long way!
22/06/2017, By Larissa
Love this product! I use it for everything around the house - floors, kitchen, bathroom. Love that it doesn't have that chemical smell of products like Handy Andy. Even though it is fragrance free, you can just add a few drops of essential oils (especially lemon tea tree).
20/06/2017, By Jessica
Great product! It's so easy to use as laundry detergent and as a body wash! There are several other uses as well which I plan to explore.
14/06/2017, By Louis3
Not that bad just do not like the smell! Wish it was a bit more concentrated though
11/06/2017, By Jacky
I love this soap! I use it for everything in my home - washing, floors, bathroom, dishwasher. It works really well.
05/06/2017, By Joanne
Great product to use - gentle on laundry and the garden (it runs into our grey water system).
05/06/2017, By Niki
cleans well and the 5l lasts me a month, we do a lot of washing with 2 small kids. its mild and cleans well, but you still need to use stain remover for very dirty items.
04/06/2017, By Dune
Great product to use since it is already in a usable state - no melting of castile soap bars. I used it for liquid handwash soap and flavoured it with sweet orange essential oil especially for winter. It works so well and smells great.
31/05/2017, By Des
I'm currently using this as a laundry detergent. I wouldn't say that it is the most affordable laundry detergent as you use quite a bit for one wash and you have to combine it with an equal amount of vinegar when you do a load.
29/05/2017, By Des
Good as a laundry detergent when combined with vinegar
01/05/2017, By No Muck
This is the most versatile product! I use it as bath soap, the base for my hand soap, a face cleanser, as a cleaner, and as a natural bug repellent with our organic farming. I love that it is fragrance free and if you desire a scent (for hand soaps, etc.) then add some essential oils. It is amazing!
11/10/2016, By Melanie Coetzee
I use this detergent on shirt collars. Normally I use a little brush and soap to scrub the collars and cuffs before putting them in the machine; so now I use a little of this to do the scrubbing, and the dirt comes off so quickly! Better than any other laundry detergent I used on those tiresome collars and cuffs!
10/02/2016, By Sunae
I like to make my own all purpose cleaner, bathroom cleaner, tile cleaner and so on. This castile soap is so concentrated, it really goes a long way and I dilute a lot when I make my cleaning products. Its fragrance free and I scent it with my own essential oils and it cleans perfectly good.
10/02/2016, By Grace
I use 60ml per load of washing + a drop of lavender EO and clothes come out fresh clean. Adding a bit to the nappy bucket helps a lot!
02/02/2016, By Christine
I am happy with this product as a washing liquid for my clothes. Tough stains need to be treated before the wash but I find that is the case with every washing liquid. A little goes a long way.
26/01/2016, By Lyn
Not bad, but didnt do any wonders for me.
15/10/2015, By Michelle
I bought this product to use as an ingredient in natural homemade beauty products, and found it works great for a lot of household purposes as well. As far as natural, chemical free goes, its near perfect!
09/10/2015, By Terry
That Castille soap is one of the best Ive ever used. I even used it (with some soil Lavender essential oil and coconut oil) as a doggy shampoo, and its wonderful. It has a multitude of other uses of course, but one of my German Shepherds has rather a sensitive skin, and this is the only product that has not left him itching for days after a bath!
01/09/2015, By Casper
No complaints from my wife or domestic worker so far. Just add some vinegar to the rinse cycle as a softer.
01/09/2015, By Amanda
I use cloth nappies on my toddler and have tried different brands of washing soap, being mindful of the different materials that are used in cloth nappies. This soap is fantastic. I don get a build up of soap on the nappies or too much foam in the machine and the nappies come out smelling and looking clean and fresh.
28/08/2015, By Carmen
I bought this product for use in making up my own natural cleaning products and liquid hand soap. Its a good versatile product. It has a faint olive oil smell.
13/08/2015, By lucinda
I was hoping to make this into many different cleansers, for dishes and laundry as well as house hold. The product is a bit on the oily side. This makes it perfect for cleaning the floors and i found the combination that works in the dishwasher . but terrible for dishwashing, and bathrooms.
14/06/2015, By Anton
Works perfectly in just 1 wash! Removes stains even locked in stains provided you follow the instructions.
29/04/2015, By Janine
I use this product to make my own household cleaning products. Works really well and goes a long way.
03/03/2015, By Suzanne
I think that this product would work very well for someone who has lightly soiled washing - Im afraid that ours was a bit too dirty for this soap to be effective in the amounts directed. It smells nice and clean.
25/02/2015, By Chantell
first time trying earth friendly product and it worked good.
I don like the smell and had to add few drops of ess oil.
I also find I have to pre treat stubborn stains. (Have a 9month old baby boy)
But leaves clothes lovely and soft, I don even need to add vinegar.

Will maybe try different product next time.
20/02/2015, By Cindy
Love this soap! It works really well for so many things - laundry, hand-soap, dish-wash, floor cleaner. Gentle and mild with a faint olive oil smell. Added drops of essential oil to the hand soap and laundry wash to add some fragrance. And really good value for money too! Great product!
19/02/2015, By Monique
I was sceptic at first but after 4 wash loads I must admit that I am impressed :) I use it with a tablespoon Londa bio bleach an the whites are nice and bright.
16/01/2015, By Samantha
Ive really enjoyed this pure and simple product as a laundry liquid. I haven tried adding apple cider vinegar yet but even by itself it cleans things really well with my washing machine and is so gentle on my hands when hand washing items. Only thing is that it has a very strange neutral smell and leaves laundry smelling of nothing which I suppose is a good thing.
10/12/2014, By Susan
I have used other earth friendly laundry soap etc before. This is one the best I have used so far. I also have these white uniforms that are very expensive and they get dull after a few washes. With this soap I am impressed with how much cleaner they look and even brighter!
02/10/2014, By Janice
Seems a little runny at first, but I use it for so many things from mixing up a recipe for hand soap to cleaning the floor. At this price, value for money
04/05/2014, By Sharon
Recently started using this for my Laundry and am impressed with it. Clothing is soft and if used on 40 degree wash cycle no residue.
15/04/2014, By Karen
I wash ALL my laundry with Pure Simple, after a long and diffucult battle to find a product compatible with my chronic allergy to perfume.
25/03/2014, By Megan
I have bought soap nuts before, they did not work as effective as the Liquid Castille soap. This is a better buy.
09/08/2013, By Bronwin
Awesome product! I make my own doggie shampoo and all purpose cleaner using this liquid soap and its the best ever. Cost effective and safe enough for my dog who now has the whitest coat ever.
21/10/2011, By Adele
I love my rented loft, but cleaning the expansive shiny tiled floor is no joke! With 10ml Pure Simple Castile Liquid Soap, a few drops of SOIL Tee Tree Oil and a micro fibre mop I have a streak free, fresh smelling, fly repelling end result! Happy cleaning at last!
