Organic Olive Oil

Add to Personalized Shopping List

Our Organic Olive Oil is refined, bleached and deodorized. It is especially rich in Oleic Acid, an omega-9 essential fatty acid and is well suited for use in the formulation of soaps, creams, balms, body butters, herbal infusions and hair preparations. Organic Olive Oil serves as a humectant and attracts external moisture to the skin while still enabling normal functions of the skin to take place (sweating, shedding of dead skin and releasing sebum). It is soothing and moisturizing for problem and inflamed skin types and is useful as a massage oil.

Organic Olive Oil can be warmed over a double boiler with dried herbs to produce herbal infusions that can be used in your formulations. In soap making, some soapers prefer Organic Olive Oil over Pomace Oil because the high percentage of unsaponifiables in Pomace Oil can cause it to saponify too quickly or overreact with other ingredients such as fragrance and essential oils. Organic Olive Oil will also give you a whiter bar than pomace. Try using a stick blender for soaps with a high percentage of Organic Olive Oil as it saponifies slowly.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
