Most of us in Crete probably remember our grandfather or our grandmother using the traditional green olive soap. Green soap for the hair, for the body, for the clothes, for every use … For centuries a secret for personal hygiene and cleanliness maintained until today. Ever since its foundation, in 1889, ABEA has been producing traditional olive oil soaps, but now it has also launched a variety of olive oil-based care products. The new OLIVA paraben free product line consists of scented soaps with olive oil, shampoo and hair conditioner, shower gel and body cream and liquid soap. All with smells of the Cretan nature; honey, orange, lavender. OLIVA products are also available in smaller packaging aiming at the hotel market.
