Why “The Australian Olive Oil Soap”?
Because we love Australian olive oil! Not only is there a great history and a fascinating spectrum of facts regarding olive trees and olive oil, but there are also many skin and hair benefits to enjoy.
Since the beginning of our soap-making endeavours in 2014, we’ve found that olive oil is the best oil for soaps in terms of it’s high nutritional values and the extended life time. It was only natural for us to make Australian extra virgin olive oil the main ingredient in all of our soaps.
As olive oil is high in fatty oleic acid, which supports the sebum production of the skin. Olive oil also contains natural squalene, naturally rich in vitamins such as A and E; and fatty oleic acid. All are highly-effective emollients, anti-aging and natural antioxidants that help to keep both hair and skin soft and moisturised.
All of our soaps are handmade from scratch, starting as simple oils and plant butter - then transformed into beautiful soap-bars by our talented team. This transformation is a result of the natural glycerin that is produced during the saponifying process from using the traditional cold process soap-making method.
Our focus on quality ensures the best and most natural and safe soaps for your skin and hair. The products from The Australian Olive Oil Soap promise an even better than luxurious experience for you and your skin.
The philosophy at The Australian Olive Oil Soap is simple:
FRESH, NATURAL and HEATHY.
This applies to the soap that we make, so that you can then apply it to your skin. We do not believe in, or tolerate bleaching or artificially altering our products, as it takes away from the natural beauty, scent and benefits of soap. In a way, we believe that artificially enhancing our products for bleached aesthetic purposes strips our soaps of the love given it to it by nature and the hands that crafted it.
Our use of natural ingredients, minimal packaging and handcrafting also make for a better environment for our children and their futures.
We aspire to create natural and healthy soaps, so that more people will be encouraged to include more natural and environmentally friendly products into their lives. With effort and the benefit of extra virgin olive oil, we hope that the choice of more natural products will lead people to developing a healthy lifestyle and a better environment with less wastes and chemicals.
We proudly hand blend our own products in small batches to ensure freshness, consistency and purity. The resulting high amounts of nutrition for your skin and hair is unparalleled and unrivalled.
Our products will always contain nothing but pure and natural ingredients, many of which are certified as organic. There is nothing artificial or synthetic and no GMO* ingredients are used. (*Genetically Modified Organisms.)
Our company believes in minimal packaging and reducing plastic use is better for the earth and our planet.
Started by a desire of a mother - Amy the founder - who wanted to protect her children from harmful, artificially altered commercial products and provide them with safer, natural soaps.
There are many harmful ingredients like SLS, SLSs, chemicals used in the cosmetics industry. It is convenient for large commercial, corporate bodies to use these ingredients because of how fast and cheap the products can be for the consumer market. At first, these additives might not seem to matter or affect your skin drastically, but they are not be good for our long-term health nor the wellbeing of our planet. You can read more about these nasty chemicals here.
We still believe that our bodies, hair and scalps will be healthier if we use natural soaps or shampoos made without synthetic ingredients, artificial colours, fragrant oils, preservatives, foam boosters or chemicals.
We are truly proud to be creating good, high-quality handmade products from Australia using Australian extra virgin oil, safe and natural nutritional products that can also be shared as gifts to family and friends all over the world.
At The Australian Olive Oil Soap, we love formulating and creating 100% natural skincare products that are based on pure plant oils and butter. They are the best foods (pure nutrition!) for the skin, hair and scalp. If our children start using natural product, it would become a good habit replacing the widespread urge to buy the cheapest or most artificial products off the shelf. This will help them avoid many dangerous skincare products marketed with fancy advertising and encourage them to be mindful of harmful additives hidden in small writing on the back.
The best is when there is nothing artificial, nothing synthetic, no chemicals and no preservatives in our products.
Just wholesome and natural ingredients that you can trust.
"Gently cleanse, moisturise, soothe, heal and protect your skin naturally, while also being kind to our planet."
