Apart from the health benefits of using olive oil in nutrition, topical application is quite popular, with extra virgin oil as the preferred grade for soaps and cosmetics. Olive oil has been known for generations as a natural, deeply penetrating moisturizer, adding smoothness and softness to dry scaly skin. In winter especially it regenerates skin cells and softens the tissue. People with various skin problems have experienced improvement after using olive-oil soap.
Sindyanna of Galilee’s soap is based on a mixture of virgin olive oil and natural elements, including mineral products from the Dead Sea. Herbs are carefully chosen for their healing and nourishing effect. The ingredients are processed using a method aimed at maintaining this effect.
