Papoutsanis Pure Olive Oil Soap
Why Greek Olive Oil soap is considered the best in the world!
Ancient Greeks used olive oil in its most pure form for softer, shinier hair and to fight the early signs of ageing, as olive oil contains four major antioxidants including Vitamin A and E, which allow it to work as a natural protector, moisturiser and cleanser.
In fact, olive oil was widely used as a skin and beauty care product by the ancient Greeks, with Homer referring to it as “Liquid Gold”.
Olive oil soap cleanses the skin without depriving it of its natural oils, so it won’t leave skin dry. Its natural texture also allows the pores to sweat, while also protecting the cells of the skin at the same time.
Olive oil’s rich antioxidant properties are renowned for nourishing, cleansing, moisturising and protecting skin against environmental and free radical damage. Applied to the skin, olive oil provides vitamins and fatty acids which leave people’s skin soft, supple and protected.
More specifically, Greek soap made from olive oil is rich in vitamin E, beta carotene and Vitamin A. Being an antioxidant it is also great for new cell generation and can help to promote younger-looking skin by improving the elasticity of the skin. Pure Greek olive oil soap is generally recommended for people with all kinds of skin conditions as it is less likely to cause skin reactions, with many dermatologists and skin specialists suggesting it is the best soap in the world for all skin types.
People with dry skin might also benefit from this soap as it helps to exfoliate dead cells. Those with eczema and psoriasis have found that using Greek olive oil soap can greatly improve their condition.
In addition, olive oil has an anti-inflammatory action that strengthens the immune system, protects the skin from diseases and the body from heart and digestive system issues.
