Savon de Marseille Olive oil soap (300g)

Olive oil soap (300g)

Back in the days before soap was invented, it is said that when the ancient Egyptians wanted to clean themselves, they spread olive oil on their skin. The olive oil stuck to the dirt, and could then be scraped away. Other civilisations in Mesopotamia learned to put soda ash in olive oil and this became the first soap.

Olive oil has been used in soap making for thousands of years. Olive oil, like all fats and oils, is transformed into soap by adding lye (soda ash is very similar to lye). Over the centuries, the process of making soap from olive oil was improved, different oils were mixed with olive oil, and additives – from algae to minerals – were utilised.

At Talking Points we have discovered this sumptuous olive oil soap for you to enjoy. Not only does it smell great and leave your skin soft but it looks great on your bathroom sink too.
