Greek Olive Oil Soap

Our Greek olive oil soaps are handcrafted from scratch in small quantities using traditional cold process methods. Greek Olive Oil with unique and

luxurious formula starts with a large portion of olive oil. Treasured for centuries, nourishing and mild Greek olive oil is the finest oil used in soap making. We add coconut oil and castor oil for their lathering and cleansing
properties, for their skin conditioning and therapeutic qualities.

This Greek olive oil soap is very mild, long-lasting and can be used full strength on any skin type to help retain moisture and elasticity. It is no surprise that olive oil soap soothes and nourishes the skin because it takes advantage of the natural moisturising properties of olive oil. Back in the days before soap was invented, it is said that when the ancient Egyptians wanted to clean themselves, they spread olive oil on their skin. The olive oil stuck to the dirt, and could then be scraped away. Olive oil has been used in soap making for thousands of years.

Handmade Soap Care: To help your handmade soap last as long as possible, keep in a well-drained soap dish and allow to dry between uses. If left standing in water or in a direct stream of the water, the lifespan of the bar will be shortened. Keep unused soaps wrapped until ready to use, and store them in a cool, dry place.
