Olive Pomace Oil for Soap
Olive Pomace Oil
Olea europaea Fruit Oil
Olive Pomace Oil is extracted from the waste left over after the Olive fruit milling process and is mainly product siphoned off after the oil has been removed. This 'mass' comprises of Fruit Flesh, Olive stones or pits and waxes. This by-product is then remilled to isolate the remaining oil still remaining after the earlier production. Volume is quite small with an average yield of maybe less than 1% to maybe as high as 4 - 5%. The solvent is mixed into the product and is then heated to remove as much of the remaining Pomace Oil as possible.
Olive Pomace Oil is the best olive oil for soapmaking due to its saponification values. Olive Pomice Oil is used in soaps, as it helps retain moisture, but does not stop the skin from breathing. We source our Olive Oil Pomace direct from Spain where it has been used for many years to make the traditional hard Castile Soap Bar. Also, there is no VAT Payable on this product. The price you see is the price you pay.
