Did you know that when you use our Olive Virgin Oil, you are moisturising your skin with one of the most prestigious grades of olive oil available in the market? Or that the serum that's currently working its magic on your skin was extracted from olives handpicked along the sunny green groves of southern Spain? If you don't know, now you do. Pat yourself on the back for choosing well.
Transparency and high-quality ingredients are the name of the game for us. In fact, they are the only rules we live by. We are OBSESSED with the quality of our ingredients and have been since the very beginning.
The Brief History of Our Olive Oil
Back in the 70's, our founder discovered the highest grade of olive oil while he was travelling through the lush, green groves of southern Spain. There, he met an olive farmer whose family has been growing the CAVIAR of olive oil for more than 200 years. He then set out to create a line of skincare products that took full advantage of this high-quality olive oil.
Farm to Face
You'll be happy to know that our olives are still organically grown the same way today. They are raised in the sunny, green Nunez de Prado groves in Baena, Spain, where the family has been producing the most prestigious grade of olive oil for more than 200 years. Our olive oil then journeys to Japan, where it's ultra-purified to make it suitable and beneficial for everyone, even you, sensitive skin.
Why It Works
Yes, our Olive Virgin Oil is basically a spa retreat in a bottle, but we thought you might also like to know why it's so good for your skin. Have you ever heard of oleic acid? If you read our blog regularly, you get brownie points for already knowing what it is. If you are new, welcome! Here's the 411 on oleic acid: It's an antioxidant-rich fatty acid present in olive oil that's similar to your skin's own natural oil. Which makes it the perfect moisturiser, because it hydrates without irritating your skin or clogging your pores.
Let's also talk about its high concentration of antioxidants. Who doesn't like antioxidants, right? They help banish free radicals that cause ageing and help you maintain healthy skin. If those aren't reasons enough for you, then consider the fact that olive oil has been used for hundreds of years in the Mediterranean for its health and beauty benefits. It has stood the test of time.
How to Use Olive Virgin Oil
Our Olive Virgin Oil is a wonderful daily moisturiser. Use it day and night as the final step in your skincare routine, after a toner. The rest of your body might get jealous about your face being the only one that's treated to Olive Virgin Oil, so use it on your cuticles for healthy nails, and on your hair to target dry and split ends. It works hard for your love.
