Olive oil is one of very few single oils from which it's possible to make a good quality soap. The other is tallow (animal fat).
The soap is a no-nonsense, low lather soap, which gently cleans without the harsh drying effects of other soaps. So if you're looking for a soap that's going to leave you skin feeling fresh, without the need for moisturisers, then this is perfect for you.
Our olive oil comes from Spain where it has been produced for 1000's of years, having said to have been introduced by the Phoenicians in 1050 BC. In fact, the oil from Spain is so good that not only was it the preferred choice of the Romans, but even today, Italy imports millions of litres of it every year.
