    Is 100% olive oil soap still considered castile if you add color? Thanks.

    Simple question, simple answer:

    Castille soap is made of 100 % olive-oil.
    If you ad 1% colour, it is no longer 100% olive-oil, and will therefore become a bastillesoap.

    That's what they say in Spain, where Castille-soap was "invented".
    Castillesoap is originally an Alepposoap, made without laureloil.
