Ingredients of our products: Olive Oil

Olive oil is not only a popular ingredient used in the kitchen, but also a common part of cosmetic formulas for skin and hair care. Let’s learn more about the composition and uses of olive oil.

Olive oil composition

Olive oil contains fatty acids that accelerate cell regeneration and facilitate the absorption of vitamin D and retinol. We can distinguish a high content of oleic acid (monounsaturated acid) and palmitic, stearic and linoleic acids (polyunsaturated acids). Oleic acid has unique emollient properties which is protecting the skin from moisture loss.  Linoleic acid, on the other hand, contributes to strengthening the stratum corneum of the skin. Olive oil also contains polyphenols and tocopherols, as well as potassium, phosphorus, iron and vitamins A, B, D, C and E. This precious ingredient protects against cold and wind, as it creates a protective layer on the skin.

 

Olive oil uses in cosmetics

Olive oil is used as a valuable ingredient in creams, shampoos and hair preparations as well as other body care cosmetics. Preparations with olive oil are dedicated to people with dry skin. It softens, lubricates and soothes irritations. It is worth mentioning that the squalane contained in olive oil protects the skin against moisture loss and strengthens the natural hydrolipid barrier of the epidermis. Olive oil also has an antioxidant effect and protects the skin against the appearance of wrinkles.

Olive oil cosmetics are intended for direct use on the face and various parts of the body. In addition to using this ingredient in the production of shampoos and creams, it is also used in the production of cold-method soaps, scrubs and bath salts.

Hair care couldn’t be done without olive oil. Since ancient times, this ingredient has been an important component of hair care products. Olive oil protects against the negative effects of external factors, such as UV radiation and gives hair shine.

Olive oil is also used in preparations for children and infants due to its moisturizing and slightly lubricating properties. It is also often an ingre of anti-wrinkle cosmetics, due to the phenolic compounds contained in olive oil and vitamin E, which delay the formation of wrinkles. Cosmetics with olive oil can be used for normal, dry, sensitive and atopic skin.

Olive oil is a remedy for dry hands and feet in form of body scrub. To prepare a homemade scrub, simply mix sea salt or cane sugar with olive oil along with an essential oil (such as orange). The homemade scrub exfoliates the skin, moisturizes and lubricates the body. Olive oil can be a great oil for removing make-up.
