Oh how I love the scent Blackberry Sage Buttermilk Bastille Soap…aaaaah I love it! There is something special about mixing fruit and herbs that I absolutely adore! Bastille Soap is so gentle and soothing to the skin. Made with Fresh Bulgarian Cultured Buttermilk mixed with the scent of tart blackberries and colored with blueberry purée’!!!
Bastille Soap is to the French what Castile Soap is to the Italians. The origins of Castile soap can be traced back to the Eastern Mediterranean regions, where … Olive Oil and Lye became known as Castile soap in Spain, and Marseille soap in France. It became the famous soap of France …Savon de Marseille Bastille Soap. The favorite of the King of France.
This Bastille is a gentle, skin loving soap that contains real buttermilk and blueberry purée. Buttermilk is a great moisturizer, blueberries are rich in Vit A, C, and E and is used topically for rashes, dermatitis, and other skin problems. Olive Oil is rich in Vit E which gently moisturizes the skin. Bastille Soap is great for dry, sensitive, or delicate skin. Bastille Soap is any soap that contains 70% or more of Pure Olive Oil. This Bastille bar I created contains Olive Oil along with Coconut Oil to help with firmness and lather.
Castile Soap is 100% Olive Oil, is extremely gentle to the skin but it doesn’t have the most copious lather as in other soap oil blends thus the coconut oil addition. It is very lightly scented with a fresh blackberry mixed with the herb sage fragrance so it is suitable for the very young, very old, those with allergies, and all skin types. My little Gabriella seems to be allergic to the wind and this soap is soothing to even her easily irritated skin. The feel is absolutely amazing and I could not believe the lather that just a tiny piece produced not to mention how hydrating the buttermilk is! This is one of my favorite soaps thus far. #frenchbuttermilksoap #ilovethesmellofthissoap #freshbuttermilk #tartblackberries #fruitandherbs #blackberrybuttermilksoap #cpop #gardendistrictsoapery #savondemarseille #soapistherapy
