Pomace Olive Oil is a wonderful addition to your cold process soap recipes. Olive oil gives a rich feel and helps to create a very hard bar once fully cured. Used in the making of Castile soap (both liquid and bar).
Pomace oil is made by extracting the last bits of oil and fat from the paste left over from pressing the Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Note: Note: Pomace Olive Oil versus other grades tends to move more quickly in cold process soap recipes. For intricate designs, such as multi colored swirls, consider working with our Pure Olive Oil.Ingredients:Botanical Name: Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Common Name: Olive Oil
*Please note: This is a natural product, the color of this oil can change from batch to batch, and is completely normal.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Shelly! I'm sorry you had problems working with this product. As noted on the product page Pomace Olive Oil tends to move quickly in cold process soap recipes. If you want more time to work with I would recommend using the Pure Olive Oil. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Bridget! The color of this olive oil will vary because it's a natural product. The color of the oil will depend on a number of factors, including soil, temperature and moisture when the olives are growing. If you want a blue or lavender soap, you can add Titanium Dioxide. That will make your soap a little lighter so you get a nice blue color. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!
