olive oil for skin
It is well known how important extra virgin olive oil is to a healthy diet; little wonder olive oil also has many benefits for our skin. For thousands of years olive oil has been revered for its ability to create and maintain a beautiful complexion. However today there are many compelling scientific findings supporting the benefits of olive oil to the skin. Quite simply, olive oil improves skin health.
Olea Europaea (olive oil) is a mono-unsaturated fat, rich in Oleic Acid and high in all-important Vitamin E and anti-oxidants. These primarily attack and destroy harmful free-radicals. Olive oil also contains natural sebum (a component of skin), plus vitamins A and K. Olive oil is extremely beneficial in slowing the ageing signs of fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps treat minor skin wounds, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. For these reasons we have made extra virgin olive oil the basis of our 100% natural skin care range, Olive Skin Food.
