Olive oil is a natural moisturizer with a high content of healthy fats and antioxidants that will help your skin retain its moisture. When your skin can retain moisture, it looks and feels softer.
Those same antioxidants help fight free radicals and can help protect your skin from the signs of premature aging- meaning those WTF lines and laugh lines become less noticeable, and you won't gain many more! And age spots lighten, if not disappear all together!
Olive oil is great for sensitive skin. As a matter of fact, the best soap for very sensitive skin is Castile soap. Castile soap is made with 100% Olive oil. The downside to a Castile soap is the lather tends to be creamy, versus the large fluffy bubbles most people like. We've been taught the more bubbles, the cleaner you are. But that simply isn't the truth. Lather has nothing to do with how clean you are- soap cleans. Period. The bubbles are just a perk!
Olive oil has anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it great not just for those with sensitive skin, but it does miracles for those with irritated skin as well. Those who suffer with eczema and psoriasis can see a very big difference in their skin when they switch to a handmade soap that contains olive oil. Hint- for those who really want relief quick, try rubbing some olive oil right from your kitchen onto those areas. It helps!
Regular use of olive oil, and soaps made with olive oil can improve your skins appearance and overall health. Olive oil is a simple way to enhance your skincare routine! Every batch of soap we make uses Olive oil as the number one ingredient!
