Benefits of Olive Oil Soap

Olive oil soap is a wonderful way to treat your skin to a luxurious cleansing every day. You've probably heard about the benefits of olive oil in your diet, but you can experience great benefits from using olive oil topically as well. As a soap, olive oil is blended with lye and other ingredients. Although you can find soap made with olive oil for reasonable prices at home, consider learning to make it yourself at home as well. That way you can be in complete control of the ingredients in your soap.

The Bar Itself

Olive oil makes a very hard bar of soap when finished. It lathers well, but not as well as other types of soaps. Olive oil bars tend to last a very long time, so you can get a lot of use out of your olive oil soap. Soaps made with olive oil have a fruity smell naturally from the essence of the oil, even if there are no other herbal ingredients in the soap.

Fabulous Moisturizer

Soap made from olive oil is naturally hypoallergenic, which means that it has little likelihood of causing an allergic reaction. Olive oil is very similar to your natural skin oils, so your skin responds well to olive oil. The soap helps to add moisture to your skin and can help you to cleanse your skin without stripping the natural oils.

Topical AntioxidantsOlive Oil

Olive oil contains multiple antioxidants, such as vitamins E and A, that are helpful when you ingest the oil, and those same ingredients are great for your skin. Antioxidants help to purge your skin of harmful elements that could damage your skin. These harmful elements can contribute to wrinkles and uneven, unhealthy skin. Olive oil soap can help to reverse the damage that free radicals can do to your skin.
