descriptionNOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, customers must allow a minimum of 10 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Some products could arrive sooner, some later. Cancellations are not allowed because an item becomes 'out of stock' soon after the customer places the order, the 'out of stock' product will ship as soon as it arrives at our warehouse. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk or that include the word 'bulk' in the product's name, products offered in 5+ lbs., expensive EO's offered in 1+ lb. and certain quantities of packaging materials. If it's important for you to know before placing an order if a certain quantity's in stock, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and inquire before placing the order. The nature of our business is such that what is in stock in the morning may not be in stock in the afternoon. All products are subject to prior sale.
NOTE: If we unexpectedly encounter a problem with the packaging material used to pack the product you ordered (defective/missing part or delivery to us delayed for any reason including road/weather conditions or the manufacturer has a manufacturing delay, etc.) we cannot ship until the correct packaging part/material is delivered to us. Please understand this and do not place an order if this paragraph presents a problem for you. In 20 years in business we've only had one instance where delivery to us of empty 35 lb. pails/lids was delayed a couple of days. (Rev. 6/19/18)
Castile Gel Soap: This is the mildest castile soap formula available in the marketplace at this time. This product is free of artificial colors, fragrances, preservatives, animal products, byproducts and testing. Our castile gel soap may be used for hand and body wash, oily hair shampoo and for general purpose cleaning.
This product is ready for you to add whichever ingredients you wish, i.e., a few drops of jojoba for dry skin, Carrot Seed EO for mature skin, Rosemary to perk you up, Sandalwood to calm you, Tea Tree for fungus and so on. Please note that if you add too much of a fixed or carrier oil you will cut down on the lathering ability. Great as a hand or face soap and overall body soap. Fine for the dog also, just add Tea Tree and Cedarwood essential oils in very small amounts for fleas, a few drops of jojoba for dry, flaky skin, etc.
Ingredients: Saponified Oils of Coconut, Olive and Jojoba, Aloe Vera, Glycerin/Vegetable Gum Extract, Rosemary Extract. This is a thick product (honey-like consistency), with a dark yellow or dark orange color. Since this is an all natural product, the color may vary from batch to batch, we are not responsible for color variations. Sold by weight.
NOTE: You may find that some essential or fragrance oils will not mix very well with a soap base which is all natural. Please test carefully using a small amount of soap base and essential or fragrance oils. Some essential oils and fragrance oils may float on top of the mixture if too much is used. You may warm the mixture slightly, stir the oils back in, wait 24 to 48 hours and check for separation. You should always gently stir the base while incorporating additives. Both the base and the additives should be at similar temperatures. Always stir from the bottom up to create as little bubbling action as possible. This is an all natural product with no anti-caking additive. Manufactured in the U.S.

Just received this and it is truly wonderful. I've bought at least 3 other castiles to see which works best for me. I LOVE the viscosity of this, like CG stated, it's like honey, which makes it easy to pour and not waste. I can't really say there is any smell which is great because it leaves you a choice to add fragrance or essential oil or not. If you already have a fragrance in your lotion, or some perfume on, you may not want to have it in your soap too. The FEEL....is SILKY and the lather is second to none, foams up quickly with a silky RICH LATHER that is AMAZING and it's affordable. Some places have priced their castiles right out of my life, so yay, I've found something much, much better here at Camden Grey and will continue to give them my business and speak to others about their terrific products, great prices, fantastic service/delivery, what's not to love.

I started using this as a facewash along with some almond oil, and it works great! My face gets easily irritated by fragrances, and since I started using this my skin feels healthy and redness has gone away. Great product, and mixes easily with oils and EO's.

Incredible! Very happy!
Today I used this gel base to make foaming hand soap, and I will definitely be ordering more, and very soon! I mixed the gel base with essential oils first, which cause the gel soap to thicken, but it seems to hold the scent better. The mix thins out easily with water, so no problem at all. The later was very thick and rich. The gel soap has very little scent to start, so I needed very little EO in comparison to other liquid castile bases to get a nice, but not overpowering scent. My only critique is that the mix ends up cloudy. Maybe it's from adding the EO first, so next time I will try adding it after the water. This is the only reason I didn't give 5 stars. Very worth the money! Thanks Camden Grey!

Best I've Ever Had
I have tried multiple castile soap from the store and online. This is hands down the best castile soap. Not only is it great for my natural hair but it does wonders for my skin. I have dry, sensitive skin and this soap (mixed with grapeseed oil, olive oil and a little shea butter) is the BEST shower gel ever. My skin glowed and had an even tone. My family and friends even started to notice. It is so gentle that my skin was not dry after the shower like usual even though I was thoroughly clean.

I have been making shampoo, liquid hand soap and shower gel for a year using this beautiful castile soap. I love the way it makes my body and hair fill! Great price and thank you so much Camden Grey for finding for your customers this lovely product!
