Olive pomace oil is a great base oil for soap and other body care products. Being gold to light-green in color and with a mild olive aroma, olive pomace 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 "pomace" refers to the grade of olive oil, which means that the oil is produced by expeller pressing the ground olive flesh and pits left after the first cold press of the olives and pits for "virgin" olive oil. Being that it is the second pressing of the olives and pits, it is normally a lower grade oil, and much less expensive which is why many soap makers use it as their base oil when making soap, although sometimes it is mixed with a small amount of extra virgin olive oil.

Suggested Uses

Olive pomace oil has a wide variety of uses. It is sometimes used in the culinary world but more often used in the body care industry to make soap, creams, lotions, massage oils, balms, body butters and hair care products. One drawback to using olive pomace oil is that it normally contains a high percentage of unsaponifiables which can cause soap to trace more quickly and/or cause other ingredients to overreact. Cured bars of soap made with olive pomace oil will generally have slight green or yellow tint to them. Olive oil soap in general will produce a bar of soap with 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.
