Our organic, cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil is rich in antioxidants, including vitamins A and E, polyphenols, phytosterols and avenasterol which help to neutralise free radicals and repair cell membranes. It is also a rich source of squalene – a natural substance that is produced by humans, animals and plants. Squalene is a popular ingredient within cosmetics as it has excellent moisturising properties and can help regulate the production of sebum. Olive Oil also contains chlorophyll which assists in the healing of skin conditions and reduces the visible signs of ageing. It is the ideal carrier oil for severely dehydrated skin and for general massage, although some types are a little too viscous. Unlike cooking, where virgin olive oil is the best, the first or second presses are the best to use for massage as they are lighter and do not have the characteristic peppery aroma associated with the culinary variety.
