Cretan or Greek olive oil still forms a good base for soap. In Crete today, small family businesses and olive oil processing companies still make olive oil soap. Only the inferior grades of olive oil, like pomace, are preferred in soap making, not only because of their lower price but also because their chemical properties are better suited to soap manufacture.
Olive oil soap is very mild, long-lasting and can be used full strength on any skin type to help retain moisture and elasticity. It is no surprise that olive oil soap soothes and nourishes the skin because it takes advantage of the natural moisturising properties of olive oil.
