VOL is a pure, natural, traditionally handmade soap made from high quality extra virgin olive oil PDO of Kalamata. Olive oil soap helps skin retain youth by hydrating and moisturizing it, nourishing it and maintains its elasticity, mainly because of its content in oleic acid. Olive oil is also rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, Vit E and vitamin K, other beneficial substances.
Properties of VOL Soaps
VOL soap consists of 85 - 100% olive oil as percentage of all fat content of the soap. The chief fatty acid of OO is oleic acid (55-85%) which:
- easily penetrates the skin
- allows skin damage to heal
- reduces wrinkles
- improves skin texture
- has therapeutic properties (eczema, psoriasis)
- is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types
- the higher the quality of the olive oil, the higher the content of oleic acid.
SAPONIFICATION METHOD: COLD PROCESS
Oils are heated only up to 40C.
Therefore they preserve their useful ingredients and keep intact their advantageous functions to maintain their beneficial properties.
Oils used in cold process have to be naturally pure. We use Extra Virgin Olive Oil of Natural or Organic Agriculture depending on the Brand Line.
Soap does not lose its natural glycerin.
Cold process saponification requires minimal amount of energy and water.
The method produces minimal quantities of waste, which are biodegradable.
This method helps maintain the beneficial properties of the oil’s constituents.
VOL soap is entirely hand produced, from the beginning of production to the end of it. We use honey, beeswax, goat's milk, oats, fleur de sel from Mani. Natural colors and essential oils - the best of such materials, approved by the relevant agencies - are added to the artistic series of our soap.
VOL soap is:
Superfatted, so no free alkali is present and no risk of damage to the skin exists.
Superfatting has beneficial effects for the skin
- Because of the free olive oil in the soap.
- Because it ensures safety to the skin and mucous membranes.
- Paraben free
- Environmentally friendly
- Free of chemical preservatives
- Dermatologically tested by laboratory methods
- NOT tested on animals
