IT’S PRECIOUS BECAUSE it’s a rich source of antioxidants, containing high levels of both vitamin A and vitamin E, which help to protect, restore and replenish the skin. It contains a high dose of polyphenols which are powerful antioxidants that help to neutralise free radicals fighting any oxidative damage that can lead to skin ageing. A high content of omega-9 actively ensures that skin is deeply nourished and protected from any environmental aggressors. It’s this property that makes olive oil a good choice for sensitive or irritated skin.
IT’S SOURCED FROM Spain, where olive flesh is crushed into a paste and then pressed to extract the oil.
