INCI Name: Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil
Cibaria Soap Supply carries 7 LB, 20 LB, and 35 LB sizes. Pomace Olive Oil is one of the best carrier oils (aka Base Oils, Fixed Oils, Soap Making Oils) for soap making, and it is widely favored among other Olive Oil varieties.
Pomace Olive Oil is highly nutritive and stable. It contains protein, minerals, and vitamins as well as superior penetrating power, and acidic and antioxidant values.
Olive oil in general is a popular ingredient that is used in many Cold Process Soaps, as well as Hot Process Soaps. Pomace is an affordable answer to a typical Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Soap Making. Soaps made from 100 percent olive oil are commonly known as castile soap. Pomace Olive Oil creates a long lasting, non-drying mild soap with creamy lather, and no other soapmaking oil contributes its unique set of characteristics. It retains moisture to the skin by forming a breathable layer, and like jojoba oil or shea butter, it does not block the skin’s natural functions while performing its own.
