Olive Oil in Cosmetics & Beauty
From Cleopatra, who invented the first anti-wrinkle cream with an olive oil base, to Sophia Loren, who took olive oil baths to preserve her youthful look, Homer’s “Liquid Gold” is still relevant in skin and hair care today.
Olive oil products protect skin against premature ageing by blocking free radicals, while simultaneously nourishing, hydrating and moisturizing. Biophenols and triterpenic acids naturally hydrate, revitalize, tone and smooth skin, the ultimate nourishment for the entire body. Olive oil based products can eliminate signs of fatigue and ageing from hair and skin, providing natural revitalization. Olive oil has an abundance of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which protects skin from UV rays, contributing to a youthful look.
OLIVIA Olive Beauty and Personal Care products utilize a standardized process of harvesting Olive Tree extracts. In association with the Department of Pharmacognosy and Chemistry of Natural Products of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, the olive extracts used by OLIVIA are always composed of the same, standardized amount of beneficial ingredients. They are harvested though Green Methods and are organic extracts, capturing all the benefits of this special tree.
