It has been well known in phytomedicinal tradition as a symbol of peace, longevity, curing, health and immortality for many thousands of years in many cultures all over the world.
From this sacred tree, we use its pure fruit juice, which is the Olive Oil exclusively of high cosmetic/food quality refined. After the olive harvest, the fruits are taken to the oil mill and processed as soon as possible and fresh in a physical way of low-temperature extraction.
The women in Minoan Crete were the first to use olive oil in beauty products and the ancient Greek poet Homer called it “liquid gold’’. Since Roman times and more recently in the 13th Century, it has been coveted for its moisturising properties and therapeutic benefits.
Due to its unique composition, Olive oil aids the balance and restoring of the skin hydrolipid network. In this way, it maintains the softness and silkiness of the skin and prevents skin dryness. Rich in natural nutrients provides gentle treatment of the skin, helping to keep it moist and supple.
A gentle skin-strengthener: squalenes, of which olive oil contains plenty, are natural components of the epidermis. The antioxidant properties of Vitamins/ phenolic compounds, chlorophyll (Greek: chlorós=green, fresh) and Omega-9 help soothe the skin. Omega-6 protects it from environmental stress factors, while phytosterols activate microcirculation and improve the quality and evenness of the complexion.
