Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) May 01, 2012 -- While olive oil based soaps have been available in the United States for quite some time, now it is possible to buy traditional handcrafted Greek olive oil soaps in the country as well. What is interesting to note is that there is only one traditional factory remaining in Greece that produces 100% pure and natural handcrafted olive oil soaps. Based in the picturesque island of Corfu in Greece, the Patounis Soap Works factory is the only remaining manufacturer that still hand produces pure and natural olive oil soaps for over 150 years.
Consumers in the United States can purchase these highly acclaimed soaps via the website http://www.oiloflife.com. Oil of Life is the brainchild of Christos Kritikos who is the owner of the exemplary "Kritikos olive grove" in Corfu, Greece. Their website offers buyers both standard olive oil soaps as well as the so called "green" olive oil soaps. All Oil of Life soaps are made using 100% pure natural locally-grown olives and locally produced olive oils. These soaps are known for being natural cleansers as well as natural moisturizers while remaining gentle on the skin. They can be used by people of all ages and more importantly of all skin types. There are no side-effects of using olive oil soaps considering there are no chemicals or other artificial perfumes used during the manufacturing process.
Oil of Life is in fact quite excited to bring these traditional handcrafted soaps from Greece to the United States. Not only is the Patounis Soap Works factory the last remaining factory that produces handcrafted soaps in Greece, it is also listed with the Greek Ministry of Culture as a monument of industrial archeology. All olive oil soaps produced in the factory are part of a long established tradition and the soaps are made with a lot of dedication and care.
