Our unscented Calendula Castile bar, using 100% organic virgin olive oil, deeply penetrates the skin with its moisturizing and nourishing chemical structure. A true Castile soap is the most gentle and mild of soaps, safe even for babies and those with ultra-delicate skin. You will not get a bubbly lather from a Castile bar, but rather a rich, thick, creamy, highly emollient lather that is perfect for shaving. This is our favorite bar to use on babies and small children (but see my note below on this subject). This is the bar of choice if anyone in your family has eczema. True Castile soaps made with only olive oil are a gentle and effective option for even the most sensitive of skin.
There is no added scent to this bar, but it has a delicious, natural scent all on its own.
Ingredients: saponified organic extra virgin olive oil and organic calendula petals. No added scent.
All of our Shampoo, Body and Facial full sized bars are 5oz in weight, with dimensions of 2.75H x 3.4W x 1D.

Please note: Our soaps are all natural—and they are SOAP. Soap stings if you get it in your eyes. It's fairly easy to prevent the soap from getting into a tiny baby's eyes, but this becomes harder as they get older and move around more. The brief sting of the soap will not damage their eyes, and it will go away momentarily. My kids got soap in their eyes all the time, but if you are concerned about the sting, you'll need to stay away from soap products. There are "tear-free" shampoos, these are basically "soap-free" but we wouldn't advocate the use of them because of all the other ingredients used in such a product.
My son was having pretty intense teenage acne, and over the counter cleansers seemed to be making it worse. He switched to this soap, combined with a chemical free moisturizer and tea tree oil, and has seen major improvements. It’s tough to find a chemical free soap with Calendula, thanks AV!
The Calendula Castile Bar soap is exactly as described. I bought this to use on my baby because I don't like all the ingredients in commercial baby soaps. Works great on her and me! There was also a sample of another soap that smelled wonderful! I will definitely be making future purchases!
This product has transformed my skin. It has never been so smooth or so soft. I use it with an eco-friendly soap bag, for both my shower and for washing my face. I am receiving compliments on the way my skin looks! I am over 60 and I feel I look several years younger than that.
I had developed flaking skin around my nose and on my cheeks. probably an allergy. After using this soap for about 10 days, that condition is nearly gone. A wonderful product, would recommend it to anyone who hs sensitive skin. Will buy it again.
The Calendula Soap bar is so gentle on my sensitive skin. I will be purchasing this soap again and again.
Absolutely devine. I love that you use only olive oil in this soap!
I just love this bar of soap. It makes my 9-month-old's skin soft and clean. He had a spot of diaper rash on his bum that was stubbornly hanging around and this soap moisturised it and helped it to heal. Hooray! It cleans us all up quite nicely and doesn't leave behind any scent. I am all for simple when it comes to products that I use on my kids. Basically, I have tried to limit the things I put on their bodies and only use edible ingredients. Not that we *would* eat soap, but the ingredients are pretty simple nonetheless :-).
I just bought this for my daughter and she is no longer itchy. She was getting white splotches from using steroid cream to take the eczema away. I'm so happy we found this soap!
I love this bar. I sometimes find soap with coconut oil in it a bit drying and irritating so this is a great alternative. It is very creamy and makes my skin so soft! I am using just this and the argan oil sample I was sent and my skin looks a feels so much better.
I love this bar for cleaning sensitive areas; I am very sensitive and most soaps tend to sting, but this soap does not burn at all! I am so glad that I can use a natural soap without the discomfort that other bars can cause!
Both I and my daughter have used this for 3 years...since she was 2! She has very sensitive skin that dries out badly with regular soap. Nether of us even has to use a moisturizer (except occasionally in winter) with this bar since it doesn't strip the moisture out of the skin. Can't say enough good things about it!
We are using this soap at the sink and we really like it. We wash our hands a lot and this soap doesn't dry our hands out like our previous brands did.
I bought this soap specifically for my kiddos, and it arrived in a very timely fashion. My toddler suffers from terrible diaper rashes, and along with some bottom balm, this soap cleared up his blisters within a day. I love the soft scent, and how easily it lathers. The calendula is a wonderful addition to keep their skin healthy!
I got this bar for myself and all my kids down to my infant. Loving it and the bumps on my kids' arms are going away even after only 2 uses!
We purchased this soap for our new daughter, who was born in February. It is the only soap/shampoo we have ever used on her (very sensitive) skin, and it is wonderful! No breakouts or irritation, we are on the same bar after 6 months, and that is with having to wash her hair every other day (she has had thick, greasy hair since birth). Couldn't recommend this more highly!
This is a favorite with my daughter.
This is a nice gentle soap that ai bought for my daughter who has eczema, as I am trying to avoid products with lots of chemicals and artificial fragrances and colors. It is nice to have mild and more natural option. Would be great for babies too!
This is the only bar that my husband and I use for shaving now. My husband has sensitive skin and this gives him a nice smooth shave. We love it.
I use this soap mostly for my face as I tend to have dry, sensitive skin. It is the first soap that I've ever used on my face that doesn't leave it feeling dry and taut afterward. I love it, or should I say my face loves it!
when i tried this soap first, i found it really mild. so i tried it as facial soap and i love it
I use this soap on my two children. It works very well, and I actually like that it's unscented.
I love this soap for my sensitive skin, it is great for shaving too. We have really hard water so after using most soaps my skin feels dry and itchy. This one is nice and lathery and leaves my skin feeling soft and no need for lotion.
I use this bar on my daughter who has eczema, it is so mild and soothing for her skin. I use it on my 9 month old too. It feels good knowing that I am using something natural on their sensitive skin. Love all the products from Apple Valley Natural Soaps.
LOVE this bar for shaving. Light scent. Leaves my legs feeling soft and never dry. Will never go back to commercial shave gel!
I have sensitive skin that needs extra TLC, making this the perfect soap for me. I can't wait to get more of this fantastic stuff to use with my baby daughter - who unfortunately got her momma's sensitive skin (and a tendency towards eczema). Thank you for making such a great, simple and soothing soap!
