Description: Pomace Olive Oil is extracted using solvent extraction, typically hexane. This solvent is added to the pomace of the olive, which is the leftover pulp and pit of the olive that is already been ground into a paste. After the oil is extracted, the solvent is removed and the oil is refined. It is thus the lowest grade of olive oil and is cheapest from amongst the other varieties.
This oil is favoured by many soap makers because of the ease with which it saponifies. It is easily combined with other oils in cosmetic formulations. It can be used in soaps, creams, balms, body butters, herbal infusions and hair preparations.
