This soap is made from 100% pure olive oil and is fragrance free, making it extra mild and gentle on the skin. It is suitable for all skin types but most especially suitable for babies, children and persons with sensitive and/or allergy-prone skins.

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.

All Pure Simple soaps are handmade using only the finest natural vegetable butters and oils, are fully biodegradable and are specially formulated to be mild and gentle on the skin with a rich creamy lather. They contain no artificial additives, preservatives, cosmetic fragrances, synthetic surfactants, mineral oils or petroleum based Ingredients.

Where possible, ingredients are sourced locally to minimise the carbon footprint and to support environment friendly principles. In keeping with these environment friendly principles, all bar soaps are packaged in Good for the Ground™ biodegradable and compostable poly-Lactic Acid (PLA) bags.

I do not need a hair conditioner anymore .. my curls stay in for 2 days ???????????? Thank you for the added olive oil ????

The best soap with only 3 ingredients! Gentle

Only thing is it dries out your skin quite a bit.

06/01/2022, By Nicky
I have a fussy skin & most face washes just dont work. This one is perfect. My hubby even uses it to shave with & he really loves it!
13/05/2021, By Jacqueline
I love this soap! I'm allergic to so many things and have sensitive skin. This is the only soap I can use. And particularly now with covid, I really need a soap that I don't react to. This soap is perfect for me. Plain, simple, effective.

Great soap

Very nice soap bar
22/10/2020, By Ams
Great product. Personally, I use this as a face soap for my sensitive skin. It is very cleansing and somewhat drying, however, if you moisturize directly after washing your face it works well. Great service, fantastic packaging (all boxes, tape and padding fully recyclable material), the product was delivered very timeously (ordered late Sunday evening, delivered Monday afternoon).
20/07/2020, By Jacolien
This is the best stuff ever. I have skin conditions and this soap gave me no reactions. I use it for my hair as well and now my family are it too.

Nice soap suitable for all
11/05/2020, By Makgomo
I have sensitive skin and this seems to be helping with easing that. I use it in the evenings only.
01/05/2020, By Meghan
Very good, bar is exactly what I expected. I used it to make laundry soap and it works wonders.
24/04/2020, By Noeleen
Only soap I use! Fragrance Free and although the bar is small it a while.
08/04/2020, By Noeleen
Love that it is actually fragrance free as so many other say it and still have a smell! Love the feel on my skin especially with dry skin and multi chemical sensitivity! Just wish it came in a bigger bar and was a bit cheaper
21/03/2020, By Heilette
This is still my favourite bath soap. It is very mild and doesn't leave your skin dry or itchy. In summer I don't use lotion as I don't feel I need it. I have very sensitive skin and have used this on my face in a pinch when we were camping.
28/02/2020, By Connect
Nice bar
24/02/2020, By Mariel
I use this soap bar as dish washing soap. It lathers well and leaves my plates squeaky clean. I love that I am not using a liquid that needs to be contained in a plastic bottle or anything chemically. So simple, effective, and faithful to nature #FTNLoves
06/01/2020, By Helper
Use generously
20/11/2019, By Maz
I use this soap instead of dish washing soap - it is a great plastic free alternative and really works.
20/10/2019, By Cindy
I love soaps that are fragrance free! The price has gone up a bit since the first time I bought it but it lasts a very long time. I even used it to wash my hair. Great product.
02/10/2019, By Yaseera
gentle and versatile
safe to use on babies which is a plus
25/09/2019, By Clemi
Very good baby soap! My newborn's skin rashes easily, but with this soap it keeps it in perfect condition.
09/09/2019, By Vanessa
Have been using this soap for a few weeks now. It cleans as soap should and has no perfumes, which is bonus. Will buy again.
17/08/2019, By Meg
Leaves you feeling squeaky clean & mosturized!
28/07/2019, By Lynne
Love this soap. Have Psoriasis and also a very sensitive skin and this soap has worked wonders. My skin feels really soft and moisturized.
P.S. several complaints re it getting slimy, agree, but as usual FTN has come to the rescue with Safix Soap Rest and also Scrub pad made from coconut husks. Saves the soap from getting slimy. A real win.
27/06/2019, By Heilette
Moisturizing - definitely worth buying
08/06/2019, By CH
Very happy, gentle non drying soap
27/05/2019, By PixiGoo
This is one of the best soaps i have used for my sensitive skin. It just about cleared all of my irritation and did not break me out.
26/04/2019, By Caro
This is the most gentle soap for my very sensitive skin
25/04/2019, By Yumna
I use this for everything.. Body Soap, shampoo and laundry. For my hair and clothing the manufacturer recommend a vinegar rinse.. With my hair I use ACV and just usual spirit vineagar with my laundry. Has really made a difference and removes build-up. Love that it still lathers. #allegictococonut
06/04/2019, By Megan
Love this soap. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. It is a bit gooey though which takes some getting used to. Also the bar is consumed more quickly than conventional soaps
12/12/2018, By Tania
Absolutely love this soap. So creamy and left mine and my kids' skin feeling silky soft.
04/12/2018, By Celest
Lovely soap. Made the switch to healthier lifestyle so easy. Will never go back to the commercial showergel I used before. Use for the whole family as well as face and body. So a all in one product for our family. Also so moisturizing that I don't need to apply lotion on my body
01/12/2018, By Terri
A wonderful soap for anyone with sensitive rosacea skin. Have come back to it after trying many other products, and my skin is thanking me for doing so.
13/11/2018, By Cam
Nice soap
12/11/2018, By Kiana
Great for the whole family
06/11/2018, By Dana
love it. I tried melting it down into an all purpose liquid soap which was a messy challenge but it works wonders, so far I have used it to clean my tent, my hair(worked well but i prefer soap nuts now instead), washing clothes, surface cleaner, dish soap, body etc the list keeps growing. The only thing i don't like is the smell, its not a bad smell but its also not a good smell. I used some lemon grass essential oil which eliminates that if you are melting it don, also there is a lemon grass version that I will be ordering soon. Overall i am going to be buying a lot of it.
26/10/2018, By Liz
Very happy with this product. It's not drying and contains no hypo-allergenic ingredients. I searched for some time for such a pure, simple product and have not been disappointed - it smells pleasant too.
07/09/2018, By Brooke
Works great - I grate it and use it to make my own laundry detergent.
14/08/2018, By Jen
Use it as a face and body wash, love it. Also use it for my hair, which is coloured, and it leaves it in really good condition.
08/08/2018, By Heilette
Love this soap. It has an exfoliating action even though it's soft to the touch. It get's a little slimy/soft right at the end, but still works the same.
23/07/2018, By Redbow
Leaves skin feeling amazing. Great for shaving. Dislike how slimy it gets but will purchase again.
18/07/2018, By Melissa
Really great soap! Nice size. Have used it to replace my normal soap in the shower. Foams nicely. Will buy again.
27/06/2018, By Priscilla
I bought it to wash my delicate lingerie and it works really well as it does not cause any irritation.
16/05/2018, By Chrissy
Very versatile soap, I use mine to make my own laundry detergent.
31/01/2018, By Caroline
Use castile soap bar as part of laundry detergent. Clothes come out clean and smelling clean too.
21/01/2018, By Bronwen
This soap can be anything you need it to be. Make shampoo, body wash, face wash and hand wash. Versatile and safe for anyones skin type.
08/01/2018, By Jo
Every other soap I have used has left my skin dry and itchy but not this one. Will definitely buy this soap again.
30/12/2017, By SunStar
Love this soap. Gentle and nourishing on the skin.
01/12/2017, By Jane
So Milan and gentle
08/10/2017, By Charlene
Early days but I am enjoying this soap so far
15/09/2017, By natural
nice soap
26/07/2017, By Abigail S
This is my favourite soap - it cleanses very well while still being gentle and not stripping or drying the skin. Having no essential oils included is great as they often can sting in open damaged skin. It also doesn't get stuck to surfaces very much like other castile soaps do. Very happy this soap exists!
13/07/2017, By Lara
Great soap - leaves skin feeling hydrated.
20/06/2017, By Jessica
This is a good quality soap. Well packaged and weighs exactly 100 grams. You're definitely getting what is stated on the box. It is mild and has that lovely characteristic Castille Soap scent. A great alternative to commercial soaps but it is rather pricey per bar compared to other commercial soap bars. However, if you can, it's a good investment.
03/05/2017, By Morulane
This soap worked well on my body especially. my face took some time to get used to the itch but after a couple of days I couldn't feel the itch anymore. my only issue was how it just dissolved quickly. id suggest to buy in bulk.
22/04/2017, By Colin
I previously said this soap seems to be an alternative to Cetaphil for those who also have a 15 minute itching sessions after showering.

After the first few bars this also made me itch (as does 99% of other soaps). I now find the least itching from this soap: Victorian Garden Rosemary & Nettle Soap, which is also a lot cheaper than Cetaphil.
17/12/2016, By Colin
Finally an alternative to Cetaphil.

- It really is gentle on the skin - something many other soaps falsly claim.
- I do not itch after showering
- It does not look like someone used sand paper on my face after showering.

- A new block of soap is sharp and hard to use initially
- A bit expensive, but still cheaper than Cetaphil
14/11/2016, By Yumna
Keeps my dry skin moist. But the soap doesn last long which makes it even more expensive then it already is. Won buy it again.
25/10/2016, By Beverly
Great product that is so gentle on the skin I even use it on my very sensitive and allergic dogs!
19/10/2016, By Shiv
The soap is a pleasant colour, lathes well and lasts long. Have not experienced any noticeable skin irritation since using the soap. If the product qualifies for endorsement by Dermatologists, the manufacturers should pursue this.
30/08/2016, By Bronwen
This product is light enough to use on my newborns skin so that makes me very happy.
10/08/2016, By Seriane
My mother uses this soap and finds it cleans her skin and hair well without leaving it stripped and very dry.
15/07/2016, By Edwina
Love this natural soap, gentle enough for my kids! Even use it on our faces! Will buy again!
18/04/2016, By Laura
My father passed away in January this year of cancer, just before he died he had a terrible. Rash and it itched like crazy, it was never diagnosed what it was as he had so many allergies, the doctors
Just gave him cream to use.
About three weeks after his death my mom broke out in the same thing. To me it looked like scabies, So I googled it and the rash the itching the little white things that came out the wounds looked like Scabies.
On researching scabies because now we were all itching, and had the rash, I came across a soap Called castile.
And God bless your company, I ordered you sent pronto and I started using the bar of soap. I would lather it on a face cloth put it all over my body let it dry on me, then run a very hot Bath and redo the procedure in the bath again.
After I towel dried I would lather more soap and apply it overnight. It was two (2) days and my rash and itch was a thing of the past.
13/03/2016, By Liezel
We love this gentle soap for use by everyone in the family and even use it as a shampoo bar. Just use some diluted vinegar water as a conditioning rinse.
16/09/2015, By sasha
This is so gentle and does not dry out my sin, or irritate it at all! Fantastic product!
04/08/2015, By Cindy
We are loving this simple soap that is gentle and does the job. Very gentle on my very sensative-skinned 5 year old too.
16/05/2015, By Terri
Having battled for many years, including visits to the Dermotologist,trying to find a cleanser for my very sensitive and reactive skin, I have at last found the perfect product. This soap bar has calmed down my sensitive skin and does not cause any irritation or breakouts. I would highly recommend if you have sensitive skin.
28/09/2011, By Masadi
I love the natural smell (no essential oils). Very moisturising and good value for money.
