Pure Olive Oil - Refined A - 1 Gal Description:

INCI Name: Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil

Soap Making that includes 100% Pure olive oil is known as Castile Soap. Many soap makers will argue that it is not a true Castile Soap unless it contains all olive oil - although others will say that as long as it includes predominately olive oil, it can still be labeled as a Castile Soap. Some Soap Making efforts turn to Pure Olive Oil - Refined A for a quality olive oil that they know is pure.

Pure Olive Oil is a wonderful Carrier oil and Base Oil for Soap Making. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is highly nutritive and stable. It contains protein, minerals, and vitamins as well as superior penetrating power, and acidic and antioxidant values. Olive Oil is high in unsaponifiables , which is a large group of compounds called steroids or sterolins. They soften the skin and have superior moisturizing affects on the upper layer of the skin.

Pure Olive Oil has also long been used to reduce the appearance of scars on the skin. Pure olive oil contains a high level of antioxidants--molecules that slow and even prevent the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation can produce free radicals, a substance that many scientists believe damages cells. Because extra-virgin olive oil comes from the first pressing of the olive--using no heat or chemicals for extraction--it's closest to its natural state and retains most of its healthful properties. Antioxidants applied to the skin can help repair damaged cells and restore the skin's vitality.

Pure Olive Oil also contains a natural chemical called Oleocanthal, which scientists believe acts as a painkiller in the same way that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) work. Therefore, extra-virgin olive oil soap applied to the skin can help reduce inflammation. Pure olive oil is known to help improve skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Pure, Refined A Olive Oil is a great addition to any Soap Making project.

Cibaria has been a longtime Supplier, Wholesaler, Distributor and Seller of Bulk Pure Olive Oil (Refined A) for Soap Making.
