Cosmetics with Olive Oil: The all natural wellness
As we know EVO oil has many characteristics and the benefits that can be derived from this fruit are really many.
The olive oil obtained through a cold extraction process keeps its organoleptic characteristics and its healthy and antioxidant properties unchanged, including: phenolic compounds, chlorophyll, Vitamin E, phytosterols with repairing and anti-inflammatory action and squalene, one of the main components of the skin surface.
Thanks to its pleasant scent, oil is the main ingredient for a healthy and at the same time moisturizing, soothing and protective cosmetics.
For those with dry skin that tends to redden or crack, the soothing action of EVO oil-based creams is a “panacea”. We recommend the use of cosmetics based on extra virgin olive oil also for the care of lips, hands but above all (and this will especially affect new and expectant mothers) you can also use EVO oil on the skin of babies and during pregnancy.
Some examples of application
The best times of the day to apply an olive oil-based face cream are undoubtedly in the morning. The face cream can be used as a base for makeup for example, or it can also be applied in the evening after cleansing the face, giving a freshness and softness to our skin.
Even EVO oil-based cocoa butter is really practical! In summer it is used to protect us from the sun while in winter we use it to protect us from the cold. It can be applied several times a day without any problem as it does not contain chemicals and is not aggressive for our lips.
How to store EVO oil-based cosmetics
The beauty of EVO oil-based cosmetics is that it needs no special care in terms of preservation. We can keep it in your bag, in the bathroom, in your room, in the office… wherever we want! The important thing is that it is not in direct contact with heat sources.
What can I say? the benefits as you have noticed are truly manifold. The cosmetics based on extra virgin olive oil are available in oil mills or in herbalist shops at a cost accessible to all.
