Olive oil has a long history of use as a skin care product. Its use through history as a cleanser, moisturiser and even an antibacterial agent is well documented – the Greeks used it for massage to prevent sports injuries, the Japanese even today believe that ingestion and topical application is good for skin and health. Although there are no studies that shows it helps in any way with stretch marks !!
We make 8 soaps that have olive oil as a base to the recipe, with other carefully chosen oils that have definitive characteristics that add to the overall soap.
When soap is labelled with all the ingredients, EU regulations state that the post saponification names should be used.
Coconut Oil – Soluble in water, so enables a great lather to the soap whilst being a good cleanser.
Rice Bran Oil – A lighter oil that is good for sensitive skin.
Cocoa Butter – A hard butter that helps with the texture of the soap and brings a delicious moisturising properties to the soap.
(Sodium cocoa butterate)
Shea Butter – Shea butter is well known for its moisturising and anti oxidising properties.
(Sodium shea butterate)
Castor Oil – Castor oil has unique properties that no other oil has, it is a humectant so it attracts moisture and improves lather, a great addition to olive oil soap.
