Le Joyau d’Olive is an initiative aiming at helping small artisans get to international markets. Our goal is to help Lebanese craftsmen while reintroducing natural cosmetics into our cities and saving our waterways one soap at a time. Since its inception, Le Joyau d’Olive has gathered around it artisans who have inherited the trade from generation to generation. Our soap masters have kept the ancestral recipe unchanged making sure that the virgin oils deliver their best benefits to the skin and hair. All of our soaps have the below characteristics:
- Virgin olive and essential oils; all of our oils are sourced in Lebanon
- Cold saponified; a process that retains intact the crystalline structure of the oils
- Twice-milled; an addition to the process that better bonds the soaps together and gives them the foaminess you’d expect from a good quality soap
- Cured over 5 months; water evaporates yielding a soap that lasts twice as long
- Handcrafted; all of our processes are manual, make no use of fossil fuels, and generate no waste.
These soaps make for the perfect gift! We’ve packed as many oils as possible in one box which makes for a perfect reminder of the beautiful biodiversity of the Lebanese forests: Pine, Lavender, Gardenia, Rose, Jasmine, and Orange Blossom. Bring your memories back to life!
Benefits of this soap: Olive oil is full of omegas, vitamins A&E, glycerin, and antioxidants. Because we use virgin oils, and because we cold saponify our soaps, you’re sure to get the utmost dermatological benefits. Ideal for those who spend extended hours in direct sunlight or those who have dry and/or troubled skin. They are antifungal, antibacterial, and antibacterial; each variation provides additional benefits including, but not limited to, fighting free radical formation, rejuvenating the skin, healing sunburns, reducing acne, curing eczema, tightening skin pores, and other benefits.
4 natural ingredients, no synthetics, no chemical, no palm, and no coco oils. Suitable for all skin types and tones.
Ingredients: The same 3 base ingredients for all 3 soaps: olea europaea (virgin olive oil), aqua (water), sodium hydroxide (caustic soda).
Plus 1 essential oil to each soap; either jasminum officinale (jasmine oil), or citrus aurantium dulcis (orange blossom water), rosa damascena (rose water).
- Long-Lasting: should last for around 40 to 50 full body washes including face. Works awesomely as a makeup remover
- Leaves no residues: washes off easily even in cold water
- Exfoliating: due to the natural crystalline structure of the olive oil, these soaps will gently exfoliate the skin leaving it fresh and rejuvenated
- Moisturizing: due to the abundance of glycerin and vitamins that are naturally present in the olive oil
- Softening: due to the abundance of omegas in the olive oil that remain in suspension in the soap post saponification
- Tones the skin: due to the abundance of antioxidants that also act on tightening the skin pores.
Directions: for an enhanced shower experience, we advise our clients to NOT use plastic sponges as these attract bacterial cultures and are not easily recyclable. Either apply on a wet natural luffa or directly on skin. Store the soap in a dry place in between use to extend its useful life and preserve its properties. Use as frequently as needed. Avoid contact with eyes; If contact occurs, rinse with lukewarm water. Not suitable for female intimate areas.
