The first ingredient in any soap is the oil; it is what reacts with the alkali to complete the process of saponification. We have found that to produce a quality soap, it is important to keep our ingredient list short and maintain quality, including 100% organic, extra virgin olive oil.
Olives are the only environmentally sustainable fruit whose oil will clean and nourish your skin and scalp, keeping the body's natural oil intact. Other oils, like palm and coconut, will create a soap that strips us of our natural protective oil, called sebum.
Olive oil-based soap will absorb into your skin and provide essential nutrients to help produce the sebum lost during cleansing. This means that you do not need to use conditioner after using our hair soap, nor will any of our soap dry out your skin!
