Our Green Goddess Unscented Castile soap is one of my favourite products. It’s made in Taranaki using pure rain water and natural organic ingredients, it’s very cost effective when compared to other brands, and best of all it does not contain palm oil.
There are so many different ways to use our castile soap; as a floor cleaner, dog wash, stain remover, cleanser and many of the recipes on our site and in Wendyl’s books require liquid castile.
