Historical researchers claim that man's first use of olive oil was, in all probability, cosmetic. Its astonishing dietary qualities were discovered much later. The knowledge of the exceptional cosmetic properties of olive oil was accumulated over the passage of centuries and in our age has been transformed into scientific fact.
Olive oil contains gallic acid tanning, irridoids, flavonoids, sugars and polyphenols that have an intensive antioxidant, anti-ageing, emollient, hydrating, firming and anti-inflammatory effect on the human skin. Thus, olive oil has proven to be an effective multipurpose agent for the creation of high quality cosmetic products.
