The term “bastille” commonly refers to cold process soap made with made with a high percentage of olive oil. Olive oil is extremely gentle, making it the perfect oil for delicate or sensitive skin. ManSoap’s bastille bar contains only vegetable-based ingredients and is comprised of olive oil and a blend of ethically sourced palm, coconut and castor oils for cleansing properties, and essential oils for fragrance. That’s it. Simple.
Bastille soap is especially good for dry, itchy, irritated, or sensitive skin, and conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It works well on oily skin and acne by helping with balancing oil production, and for not clogging pores.

Caring for your handmade soap:
Handmade soaps naturally have a high glycerin content, which is great for your skin – but it also means the soap requires a place to dry out between uses. The glycerin attracts water and if left in standing water, the soap will break down quickly. To prolong the lifespan of your soap, do not allow it to sit in a dish or container that is bowl-shaped, or that allows water to pool in the bottom. Instead, be sure to store your soap in a dry place out of the stream of water, and on a draining soap dish. Allowing the soap to dry between use will extend the life span of the bar.
