Olive oil began to be used for cosmetic purposes in ancient Egypt. In those days, when the soap had not been invented yet, the ancient Egyptians were smearing olive oil onto their skin. According to one of the legends in Mesopotamia women were adding ash into olive oil, and thus producing the first olive oil soap. Traditionally, olive oil soap is made only from olive oil without any additives or other essential oils. From ancient times to the present day, olive oil is very popular in soap making.
Beneficial properties of olive oil soap
Natural olive oil soap is excellent in skincare for any skin type. Patara Life Soaps use only olive oil produced in Aegean Sea area which is well known for its highest quality. Olive oil in ancient times was known as "liquid gold" because it contains a lot of monounsaturated fatty acids and vitamins, which keep the skin young and beautiful. It contains many antioxidant, like vitamins B, A, D, C, K, F, E, oleic acid, amino acids, protein, lecithin, polyphenols that nourish and moisturise the skin, improve blood circulation, stimulates cell renewal, smooth wrinkles and increase the elasticity of the skin.
Olive soap gently cleanses the skin without causing overdrying, tightness or leaving a greasy shine. It improves skin tone and makes it velvety. Olive oil soap can be used for skin problems such as eczema and acne. The soap has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, which are helpful for the skin with acne. Olive oil in this soap protects the skin and fights against free radicals that cause skin aging.
What makes Patara Life Soaps special?
SLS, Paraben Free
Cold pressed soap describes the process in making the soap using a cold-process method. Basically, the mixing of the vegan oils (Olive oil, coconut oil etc) and lye (Sodium Hydroxide) produces a chemical reaction known as "saponification" which doesn't require external heat to complete the process, resulting in soap that's good for the skin.
Yes. Olive oil soaps can be used on the body or the face. Olive oil is moisturising for the skin and won't cause dryness.
Cold pressed soaps use natural ingredients and the saponification process takes time, resulting in a soap that is slightly more expensive.
