A Little Bit About Our Olive Oil Products

A Little Bit About Our Olive Oil Products

At Herbonita Soap Company our gentle olive oil soaps are made from scratch in small batches in our own kitchen from all natural plant-based ingredients with recipes we created. Each batch starts with 60% olive oil to soften, smooth, and moisturize your skin. Olive oil is rich in vitamin E, Beta-carotene, and antioxidants to stimulate new cell generation. Olive oil soaps are known for their gentleness. We add other all natural rich vegan oils to balance the bar. Our soaps are colored with only natural ingredients such as herbs, clays, and oxides. Except for the soaps that contain goat's milk, all our soaps are vegan.

We use lots of herbs from our organic herb garden in our soaps. Only all natural essential oils are used to scent our soaps, we never use fragrance oils which contain petroleum products. Each of our scents is created by us by trial and error, mixing essential oils until our noses like what we have created.

Each scent is unique to our products...we use no ready-mixed or purchased scents. Some of our bars contain specialty ingredients such as goat’s milk, rich cocoa butter, pulverized apricot kernels or ground oatmeal for their exfoliating properties, Dead Sea Mud, and others. Our salt bars made with pink Himalayan salt or Hawaiian Black Lava salt are especially popular.


Handmade Soap vs. Commercial Soap

Glycerin is known for its moisturizing and soothing properties. (Do you remember your grandmother's Glycerin and Rosewater moisturizer?) Glycerin occurs naturally during the saponification process of making soap. Commercially made soaps have had most of the glycerin removed which is sold separately! Our handmade soaps contain all the naturally occurring glycerin. Most commercial soaps also contain detergents, fillers, petroleum-based fragrance oils and chemicals, along with high levels of animal fats. Are these things you want to put on your skin?
