Olive oil is a natural extract composed of essential fatty acids, including oleic, linoleic and palmitic. In addition, it’s also rich in vitamin A, vitamin E and other antioxidants. The cosmetic properties of olive oil as beauty treatment had already been recognised by ancient people around the world.
The Phoenicians named it as “liquid gold”, the Egyptians used it to soften their skin and to make their hair shiny while Greek athletes used it for massages. Recent studies have shown that the fat composition of olive oil is very similar to the one that human skin has. This oil contains many beneficial substances and active ingredients.
It performs natural anti-aging actions on our skin and helps to fight the potential harmful effects of free radicals. Furthermore, it also heals inflammation and cures oxidative stress. The monounsaturated fatty acids present in olive oil restore the hydro-lipid film (skin protector) composition and favour the epidermal cell regeneration.
