What is Olive Oil Soap and its benifits

What is Olive Oil Soap?

Many natural soap bars contain Olive Oil as a base ingredient due to its deeply moisturising and nourishing properties. Olive Oil can also be used as a pure body oil, hair treatment or natural soap which can help to relieve dry skin and soften wrinkles. Olive Oil soap is considered to be one of the best treatments for dry skin as its moisturising properties help to soften the skin texture, hold moisture and nourish it without interfering with natural skin function. Olive Oil soap is a suitable natural body wash for those with sensitive or dry skin as it has a lower pH than most ‘mainstream’ soaps that can be made from foaming agents, petroleum oil or animal fats which can be drying and irritate the skin. It is also considered to be the most mild of all soaps.

What are the benefits of Olive Oil?

Olive Oil has long been championed as a remedy for hair and skin, even in ancient civilisations. Its antioxidant rich properties are renowned for nourishing, cleansing, moisturising and protecting skin against environmental and free radical damage. Applied to the skin, Olive Oil provides vitamins and fatty acids which leave skin soft, supple and protected.

Olive oil soap gives a very clean and buttery feel despite minimal lather. It provides a very moisturizing effect that lasts for a longer time, making it perfect for people with very dry and sensitive skin.
