Since 500 B.C., the benefits that olive oil has on the body have been widely known. The advantages, however, are not just limited to inside the body. Olive oil soap can also be healthful to the skin. Rich in Vitamin E and Beta Carotene, as well as being highly antioxidant, it stimulates new cell generation, slows the progression of wrinkles, and gives skin a youthful look. Extremely mild, it also helps people with a variety of skin conditions.
During the 6th century, craftsmen from France made olive oil soap by combining the ashes from sea plants with olive oil.
Olive oil is made from tree-ripened olives. To make soap, lye is added as a neutralizer.
Hydroxytyrosol, an antioxidant found only in olive oil, provides anti-inflammatory effects to help heal skin abrasions, rashes and even sunburn. It is also non-greasy and won’t clog pores, helping those with acne.
Olive oil soap is known to provide relief to such skin conditions as eczema and psoriasis.
Olive oil soap is a hard bar, with low lathering ability. It is long lasting, cleans well and is very mild.
