Details

Extra virgin olive oil is one of the most universal of all of the vegetable oils because not is it only great for culinary use, but it is also a wonderful base oil for soap and other body care products. Being gold-green in color and with a mild fruity aroma, extra virgin olive oil is high in oleic acid. It is known to be a skin rejuvenator, a great humectant in that it attracts external moisture to the skin and is also known to soothe tender, irritated skin. The term "virgin" refers to the grade of olive oil, which means that the oil is produced by mechanical means only without the use of any solvents or chemicals. The term "extra virgin" together is a rating assigned to olive oil by the International Olive Council, which means that it is a high quality oil with low acidity (no more than 0.8%) and is judged to have a superior flavor compared to other types of olive oil.

Suggested Uses

Extra virgin olive oil has a wide variety of uses, including culinary applications as well as in the body care industry to make soap, creams, lotions, massage oils, balms, body butters and hair care products. When used as the main base oil in soap, the finished soap is commonly known as "castile soap." Extra virgin olive oil is known to give soap a whiter bar compared to commonly used pomace olive oil. Olive oil soap in general will produce a bar of soap with a creamy and dense lather. It takes olive oil soap longer to cure and harden, sometimes up to 8 weeks, so it requires a certain amount of patience when using olive oil as your base fat in soaps.
