benefits of olive oil soap
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.as Olive Oil contains four major antioxidants including Vitamin A and E which allow it to work as such a potent protector, moisturiser and cleanser. Natural soaps made with a base of Olive Oil help to replenish the skin’s natural oils to provide balance and lasting protection, and are free from the harmful artificial and synthetic ingredients and fragrances found in mainstream soap bars
You encounter free radicals every day as you expose yourself to food, pollution, pesticides and chemical beauty products. These free radicals damage cells, potentially causing disease and accelerating aging. Olive oil is a natural source of the antioxidants vitamins E and A, which fight free radicals — and the benefits are there regardless of whether the oil is ingested or rubbed into the skin in the form of soap. Olive oil also contains oleocanthal, a compound touted for its anti-inflammatory benefits. Inflammation in the body can compromise your immune system and put you at risk for illness and disease, including chronic skin rashes, heart disease and digestive problems.
Long Lasting, Lightly Scented and Vegan
Olive oil soaps offer a pleasant, fruity aroma, rather than an overtly perfumed scent that can irritate sensitive noses. Soap made with olive oil is hard and lathers minimally, so the bars tend to last a long time and you get a lot of use out of your investment. Many commercial soaps are made with animal fats, rather than plant oils. Olive oil soap uses plant products, making it appropriate for people who wish to avoid using animal products.
The Toukan family is one of the last remaining soap factories in Nablus and still makes castile soap using traditional methods in a historic factory, accoridng to a recipe that is 150 years old. The three natural ingredients, olive oil, water, and caustic soda are mixed in a large vat which is brought to a boil twice a day for several days. Once the slurry is ready, the soap is transferred into buckets and carried to the factory floor where the soap is poured into large slab molds. The slab is leveled and allowed to harden for weeks. The hardened slab is then lined for cutting, each bar gets stamped with the famous **Two Keys** logo using a hammer, and then the slab is cut into characteristic soap blocks. The blocks are stacked in ceiling-high columns to promote air circulation and drying for a month or more. Finally, bars are wrapped by hand–the fastest soapers can wrap up to 1000 bars per hour!
