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.

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.

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.
