Soap Range

Olive oils are now used more and more as a natural form of moisturiser in beauty products such as lotions, body wash, shampoo, cream, and soap. Olive oils contain all kinds of natural goodness such as antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids that are great at maintaining healthy skin and help fight free radicals, which can reduce the signs of ageing and help with skin conditions such as acne and eczema. It is no wonder why olive oil is now one of the key ingredients in many beauty products.

Below we have for you five reasons why you should start using organic olive oils today.

  • Good for Sensitive Skin

Olive oil is natural, gentle, and can be used for any skin type. They are gentle on sensitive skin and guaranteed to be hypoallergenic, meaning no irritations or skin reactions.

They are gentle enough to be used on your body and face. However, before you purchase an olive oil soap, look for one with low sodium lauryl sulphate, and make sure you are buying soaps made with organic and high-quality olive oils. You also want to ensure that there is not a high level of fragrance added, which can irritate your skin.

  • Moisture

If you have dry skin and need a gentle cleanser that does not strip your skin from its natural Oil, Olive Oil soaps are a great option, especially during winter, where you may suffer from dry and flaky skin.

Another benefit of olive oil soap is that it does not clog your pores but, at the same time, helps cleanse away sebum, dirt, and sweat from your skin. As they are rich in glycerine, vitamin E and A, they help keep your skin feel healthy, moisturised, and youthful.

  • Helps Soothe Skin Conditions

If you have mild skin conditions such as eczema and acne, olive oils are natural and gentle enough to soothe and help reduce any irritation. They help keep your skin moisturised and support the skin barrier by protecting it against irritants, allergens, and infectious agents.

  • Gentle Cleanser and Make-up remover

Olive Oil soaps are powerful but effective and mild cleansers, which means they can remove make-up and clean your skin gently. However, make sure you use only unscented soaps, as fragranced soaps can be highly irritating to those with sensitive skin.

  • Rich in Antioxidant

Olive Oils have been used for decades to keep skin looking healthy and youthful. Olive oil contains Vitamin A, E and contains a high level of antioxidants that can help protect your skin from free radicals, reducing the signs of ageing. They also have anti-inflammatory compounds that can help balance skin tone and texture, keeping your skin looking bright and youthful.
