Olive oil is a natural oil that's extracted from olives, the fruit of the olive tree. It has been used for centuries in various cultures for both culinary and medicinal purposes. In skincare, olive oil is commonly used in creams and lotions and as well as natural and organic formulas. It's valued for its ability to hydrate and soothe irritated skin and improve overall skin texture. Olive oil is used in facial cleansers and makeup removers because of its ability to dissolve makeup and impurities without stripping skin of its natural oils.

Olive oil contains antioxidants including vitamin E and polyphenols that help protect skin from free radical damage that can cause fine lines and wrinkles.

Smoothes and Calms Skin

Olive oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe and calm irritated skin seen with skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

Contains UV Protection

While not a replacement for sunscreen, olive oil can offer some natural protection against UV rays because of its antioxidants..

Controls Acne Control

Olive oil has antibacterial properties that can help combat acne-causing bacteria. It can also help balance oil production on skin, which makes it suitable for some individuals with acne-prone skin.

Reduces Scars and Stretch Marks

The vitamin E in olive oil can help heal scars and reduce the appearance of stretch marks over time.

Removes Makeup

Olive oil can be used as a natural makeup remover since it can effectively break down makeup and impurities to gently cleanse skin.

Exfoliates Skin
