Olive Extra Virgin Oil, Cold Pressed Organic (Food Grade). As you may know Olive oil is not only a nutritious oil for dressing your salads but also great for nourishing your skin. Mediterenean folk have been applying it directly to their skin for decades to deliver the appropriate moisture to their sun tanned skins. It works superbly as an ingredient in your formulation or on its own, although this oil does leave the skin a little greasy when applied on its own, so we recommend adding it into a formulation. Despite its wealthy fatty acid profile, Olive oil contains three major antioxidants; vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols, all of which aid in maintaining skin & hair strength & smoothness. 

Further to this it contains a compound called Hydroxytyrosol, which helps prevent free radical damage to the skin. This particular grade is unrefined (virgin) and food grade. Very simple to use, a dark green olive colour with a spicy, olive aroma.A rich fatty acid profile. It contains three major antioxidants; vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols. Unrefined/Virgin so full of goodness. Contains the compound Hydroxytyrosol, which helps prevent free radical damage.
