What is olive oil soap?

The basic ingredient of olive oil soap is 75% of olive oil.The rest is herbs, spices and ethereal oils. There are two basic methods for the production of the soap, the cold and the warm.The cold method includes slight heating and not boiling the ingredients.In this way, all the beneficial properties of the olive oil and the herbs remain intact. The
maturing stage takes place naturally within a four month period. The soap which is produced in this way is rich in vitamins A and E and has a high degree of cleaning efficiency. But its most important benefit is that the very rich moisturizing properties of glycerine, which is a byproduct of the process, remain within the soap thus justifying the natural moisturizing properties of the soap.
When using the warm or industrial method, salt is added to the mixture for the purification of the poorer quality olive oil used and for the separation of glycerine which is extracted from the mixture in order to be used in the cosmetics industry. The synthetic elements which are added in the process in order to induce froth do not increase the cleaning capacity of the product.

The history of soap.

According to a Sumerian clay plate dated 2500 years B.C. the soap was originally made with water, ash and oil from the kassia plant. There are recorded in numerous tales and information concerning its history. According to the Greek tradition, the phenomenon of saponification first appeared on the island of Lesvos where in sanctuaries when burned fat was mixed
with ash and water a form of soap was created. This discovery was attributed to the poetess Sappho who observed and recorded this event and, for this reason, the chemical procedure for the making of soap was called ''Saphonopiesis'' after her name.
Looking into the different sources concerning the making of soap, we discover through Thoukididis that in the baths of Kaliroi springs ancient Greeks added olive oil, almond oil, and nut oil while a few centuries later, during the Minoan age, the inhabitants of Crete used olive oil for cosmetic purposes.
