Once called “liquid gold” by Homer, olive oil was a commonly used skin care product by Phoenicians Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks. Olive oil has vitamin E and oleic acid, which are both beneficial to the skin. Olive oil’s oleic acid helps to soften the skin, and the vitamin E improves the elasticity of the skin… The earliest recipes for Aleppo soap date back to 2400 B.C. Local villagers harvest the olives and laurel berries, which grow wild in the forests of northern Syria and southeast Turkey They then press and boil them. This soft mixture is set in cave-like storage areas to dry for 6 to 9 months until it hardens into a naturally green soap that develops a golden outer skin as it ages.

Greeksoap_700

This 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 moisturizing 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. Olive oil, like all fats and oils, is transformed into soap by adding lye (soda ash is very similar to lye.

The gentleness of olive oil and its ability to act as a humectant and draw moisture from the air to your skin makes this soap wonderful to use.

This is a very nice everyday mild soap with out any fragrance oils just lots of wonderful lather. Cretan olive oil and a little coconut to make it a bit harder with extra lather, Great for the acne.

Artisan Greek Olive Oil Soap with Mediterranean Sea Salt

Mediterranean Sea Salt -salt is harvested from the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Mediterranean Sea Salt is harvested in the South of Italy, where they have been producing salt since 200 B.C. Mediterranean sea salt, also called Sel de Mer, is known for its mild flavor and bright white crystals. It is naturally high in magnesium, which acts as a natural anti-caking agent, but this very high quality salt is 100% natural and contains no additives of any kind.

Since ancient times olive oil has been used as a way to moisturize and help rejuvenate damaged skin. As we age our skin deteriorates and its inner and outer layers (dermis and epidermis) grow much thinner. The stresses and strains of aging also cause the skin to lose elasticity, which soon becomes noticeable as wrinkles. External factors, such as the suns rays can also speed up the aging process by generating what are called ‘free radicals’. The good news is that it’s possible to reduce the damage done to cells by using ‘inhibitors’ that lower the risk. Natural Handcrafted soap Greek olive oil There are many creams and lotions on the market that can help with this but if you’re looking for a natural ‘inhibitor’, you need look no further than olive oil, which has a lipid profile very close to that of human skin.
Olive oil has a large proportion of vitamins A, D, and K, as well as vitamin E, which is a key source of protein needed in the fight against free radicals. This makes olive oil particularly helpful in the fight against skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, and seborrhea eczema.

More generally, olive oil can be used daily to improve the condition of skin in the following ways
As an exfoliate: Mixing olive oil with sea salt and massaging into an affected area helps remove dead skin and enrich the healthier layers below it. Adding oil to a bath also helps moisturize the whole body.
In nail and cuticle care: Extra virgin olive oil is a simple solution for dry nails and cuticles. By rubbing a few drops into the cuticle area and around the nail, cuticles stay moist, and nails respond with a natural shine.

As an eye makeup remover: A drop or two of extra virgin olive oil on a cotton pad helps to gently and effectively remove eye makeup without irritating the delicate skin. Olive oil also helps to smooth wrinkles that can form around the eyes.
Besides the presence of olive oil in cooking, another important usage of it is in beauty and skincare. It is high in antioxidants, which protect against the physical signs of aging, and it also works to moisturize the skin. These beneficial properties did not go unnoticed even in per-Christian times. The Ancient Egyptians used olive oil for body and hair massages, while the Romans, Arabs, and Greeks made it a key ingredient for soaps, perfumes, and moisturizers. Nowadays, it can be found in products such as body lotions, soap, and shampoo. One can even use extra-virgin olive oil by itself for beauty rituals, since it is in its purest form and retains all of its nutrients.

The largest organ of the body is the skin, and it requires care by way of moisture Olive oil has been used for thousands of years as a moisturizer and wound healing. It also appears that it may protect against DNA damage of the skin after exposure to UV light.

After showering, apply olive oil directly to damp skin as a moisturizer. The water will help the oil penetrate the layers of the skin.
