Our olive oil soap consists largely of our extra virgin organic OEL and also contains the ingredients shea butter, avocado oil, water, spruce needle oil, sage oil, spirulina, lemon and linalool.
It’s handmade and vegan – you can theoretically bite into it.
It is made by and with the small manufactory Maisoap in Berlin-Friedrichshain. The recipe to this natural soap was developed together, realized and is therefore an absolute original. With its high content of pure natural ingredients and pure vegetable fats, it contributes optimally to the regeneration and cleansing of the skin.
The soap is free from:
– Palm oil/sodium palmate
– animal fats / e.g. sodium tallowate
– Other petroleum-based fats
– or synthetic fragrances.
The idea for the soap from olive oil and the production
The idea for our own soap was born four years ago from the consideration to create another product after the actual core product OEL, which has considerable health-promoting properties, that is in no way inferior to these. With our OEL we promote health from the inside and with our soap from the outside.
Maisoap has been dedicated to the production of our olive oil soap for four years now. And that’s no easy feat. The soap, like many other varieties of the manufactory, is first prepared in a certain mixing ratio. Here it is important to use natural, organic and mild ingredients and fragrances as much as possible. Then the main ingredient, our extra virgin olive oil (Italian for “extra virgin”), is heated in the pot at about 35-40 degrees Celsius and saponified together with the natural fragrances, the essential oils and the lye (sodium hydroxide to be precise). The deliberate selection of this narrow temperature range is primarily intended to protect the ingredients. The lye or lye mass is then poured into a mold. In this form, the olive oil soap should pre-mature. After a few days, it is then cut and then placed in special boxes to ripen and stored. Last but not least, the soap is milled and packaged by hand.
Due to the large number of steps during the soap making process, our olive oil soap is one of the most elaborate and costly products of the OEL brand.
