Olive trees are hardy, long lasting trees that can thrive in hot, dry climates. The oil that is extracted from the olive fruit has a sweet smell and light consistency. It contains squalenes which are also present in our own skin and so the oil is readily absorbed and used to strengthen then skin. Phytosterols are plant based cholesterols that are present in olive oil and that prevent the slow down of collagen production and encourage a smooth texture, making this ingredient good for anti-ageing.
Olive oil is a triglyceride which is an emollient that helps replenish the skin and prevent moisture loss.
