Soaps

I saponi solidi per la detergenza del corpo e del viso contain not less than 60% of our organic extra virgin olive oil ( 100% of extra virgin olive oil for our Extra virgin Olive Oil soap) produced by L’Olea.

In addition to extra virgin olive oil, our soaps contain: coconut oil, sweet almond oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, wheat germ oil, castor oil, vegetable stearin.

The extra virgin olive oil ha innumerevoli proprietà benefiche che lo rendono il più indicato tra gli olii impiegati per uso cosmetico. Esso, infatti, presenta una speciale componente “insaponificabile” che non si deteriora a contatto con la sostanza alcalina necessaria alla saponificazione. É l’olio che più di tutti è in grado di curare e proteggere la pelle, favorendo alla stesso tempo la sua naturale respirazione ed idratazione. É inoltre particolarmente adatto alle pelli sensibili o con allergie. Le materie prime impiegate nei prodotti così come il laboratorio sono certificati biologici – Certificazione Organic Cosmetics certificate issued by Organismo di Controllo Suolo e Salute. L’Olea products meet cleansing and nourishing requirements without the use of petrochemical-derived substances, without the use of synthetic components, or GMOs, or palm and palm kernel oil, or perfumes or preservatives, which are normally found in conventional products.

The greatest advantage for the customer is the possibility to choose to nourish the skin in a healthy and environmentally conscious way.

The perfume of the soaps is obtained exclusively from essential oilssubstances extracted from aromatic plants, the natural alternative to synthetic fragrances. The main ones are lavender and rosemary. Essential oils of ylang ylang, cinnamon, mandarin, chamomile, cedar, eucalyptus, geranium, cloves, fennel and mint are also present.

Coloring is completely natural,given by cinnamon powder, mallow and lime blossom extracts, turmeric, dried ground rose petals; lavender flowers.

Our products are not tested on animals and all our ingredients of natural and organic origins. The “Green Bio Cosmetic” certificationBiocosmesi Verdeis the quality standard which identifies natural cosmetic products coming with organic origins only

Our soaps are made with “Cold Saponification Process”which requires less waste of energy compared to other saponification processes and is therefore more environmental friendly. Saponification takes place using the heat naturally developed during the chemical reaction with sodium hydroxide.

Our soaps Soaps made with “cold Saponification” are naturally rich in glycerine,which is naturally produced during the saponification process. Furthermore, in addition to triglycerides of fatty acids, vegetable oils and butters contain an unsaponifiable matter, i.e. compounds that do not react with soda. For example: phytosterols, tocopherols (vitamin E), carotenoids (vitamin A), which have lenitive, protective, softening and anti-oxidant properties for the skin. A hand made soap, created in this way, will naturally contain a portion of unsaponifiable matter which confers unique features to all our soaps. Soaps are left to rest for at least a month to respect the natural aging times, before being packaged. Molds used are made of wood and are reused at every saponification. Soaps are cut manually, so the weight varies from 100 to 120 grams (size is not standard) They are wrapped in white vegetable paper mainly used for food and, therefore, completely biodegradable.
