We all know and love Olive oil, its virtues as an oil to put on salads and bring you good health. However, it does have topical uses also – think about it, Olive oil soap is a mainstay of any Greek supermarket!
So how is it made? Much like other oils we use, it is pressed from the fruit (Olives in this case) of the Olea Europaea tree.
As it is such a common and of course easy oil to find, Extra Virgin Olive oil is an obvious choice of ingredient in our products. It is more greasy when used alone so we are careful of the quantities we use in our products and usually combine it with another oil to ensure we get the benefits without the heaviness.
