olive oil for soap and advice on purchasing

Did you know that there are major benefits to soap that is made with olive oil?

The majority of Americans simply buy the cheapest soap found in the grocery stores and may be missing out on all the major benefits. Conventional soaps can leave your skin dry, cracked or require more moisturizers to keep your skin in balance. They also can contain many different types of harsh chemicals, sulfates and sulfites. It’s a lot for your skin to take!

As for soap make with natural oils like olive oil and coconut oil, they are incredible gentle and moisturizing, without making your skin oily. If you are someone who has dry or sensitive skin, the attributes of the olive oil in the soap will actually help to sooth the skin as well as soften. They may cost a bit more, but as it is with all natural products, just know that it’s worth the extra investment!

Those with eczema or psoriasis find great relief in using this kind of soap because it helps to relieve symptoms. Believe it or not, it also helps those who may have acne. Unlike soaps that are somewhat greasy, soap with olive oil will not clog your pores, which allows healthy and beautiful skin to emerge.
