Olive Oil and Olive Leaf Extract in Skincare

Ingredient Watch: Olive Oil and Olive Leaf Extract

Olive oil and olive leaf extract are known to be ultra nourishing as they are both rich in glycerides, which soften the skin. They better equip the skin’s ability to absorb moisture so skin takes on a more radiant, less lacklustre appearance.

Olive oil is more widely known for its food uses, but is frequently used in both skin- and haircare, to treat dandruff in the latter. As well as being a great moisturiser, olive oil is also known for its antioxidant qualities.

Olive leaf extract is again a powerful antioxidant, blowing vitamin C and green tea out of the water in terms of its power. Both ingredients work wonders on dry skin to really boost moisture levels and rid you of that dry, flaky appearance.
