I heard olive oil is wonderful for the body but shouldn't be used on the face because it clogs pore, is this true?
- No. Olive oil is one of the safest and widely used oils. It's been used in Europe, Egypt, Greece, Syria and Iraq, among other countries, for thousands of years. It's been used as a trading commodity, currency, as an unguent for the body and hair, to prepare food, and even as a lamp oil. As an unguent or modernly called body oil, it not only softens and protects the skin, it also aids in balancing the natural ph of the skin. When applied to the body it doesn't clog the pores or causes any other problems, so there is no reason to believe it would clog the pores of the face only.
What should I do if in eyes?
Like with any other soap or shampoo, immediately flush with plenty of fresh water. Soaps and shampoos, even this one, are mildly irritant to the eyes. It would burn and sting, if just a little drop falls inside the eye, and probably would get red, but it's just temporary and should go away in no time.

Is BVO's CoccoOliva 30/70 Soap like Dr Bronner's All-One Pure Castile Soap?
No. Dr Bronner's All-One Pure Castile Soap contains large amounts of coconut and palm oils (the 2 first ingredients on the list), while olive oil is present at the bottom of the list of ingredients, which means it is added in small amounts to keep the cost on the cheap side. More over, none of Dr Bronner's castile soaps are actually castile soaps. The company is using the name Castile in its products while offering regular vegetable soaps misleading consumers in the process. A true authentic castile soap is formulated with only Extra Virgin Olive Oil, but this oil is expensive and hard to formulate soaps with. Because there aren't regulations for castile soap in the USA, anyone can use the name on any soap even if the formula doesn't contain olive oil.
CoccoOliva 30/70, is not a castile soap and it isn't like Dr Bronner's castile soaps as it contains as the first ingredient on the list, and as its name indicates, 70% of Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive oil and only 30% of Certified Organic Extra Virgin Coconut oil to boost foam. The first ingredient on the list is olive oil, not coconut oil. There are no other oils added to its formulation and must definitely doesn't contain palm oil.
