Natural, organic soap, made true to the ancient soap used by the Romans. Dark in color, its key ingredient is black olive. Black soap is a vital ingredient in the art of fine lime plaster finishes and particularly the Tadelakt of Morocco. When applied on fresh plaster, the oil comes in contact with moisture that contains calcium particles. When polishing, the cream penetrates into the plaster, creating a durable hydrophobic (waterproof) layer, adding richness and luster to the finish.
