Soap makers from ancient civilizations discovered by accident that mixing olive oil from the runoff of volcanic areas would produce bubbles and cleansing properties. This is one of the earliest recorded events relating to the origins of soap making. Through many iterations of mixing olive oil with different concentrations of lye water soap making was perfected. The natural properties of the olive (rich in vitamin E) made for outstang soap that was great for your skin and made an excellent cleansing compound that has stood the test of time and is still favored today.
