Ingredient Knowledge: Organic Olive Oil, our offering to nourish your skin
Posted by Brigit True Organics on
Brigit True uses certified organic olive oil as the major ingredient in all of our skin care. Olive oil not only has a far superior shelf life compared to other oils, but incorporates the most advanced anti-aging and healing properties, helping us avoid preservatives and synthetic anti-aging particles.
Discovered more than five thousand years ago, olive oil has been revered as an ancient European beauty treatment. The external application of this prized oil creates soft, supple skin which appears to defy the rules of time. When used on the hair and cuticles, brittleness and coarse irregularities become silken and smooth.
However, the science behind olive oils’ heavenly qualities extends far beyond the aesthetic. It is saturated in antioxidant vitamins A and E and polyphenol compounds that love nothing more than to scavenge and eliminate the free radicals that break down our cell membranes (free radical damage results in aging and cellular mutations that are potentially cancerous). If gobbling up nasty free radicals weren’t enough, olive oil also happens to be rich in chlorophyll, an organically occurring substance that fights aging by naturally stimulating cell renewal. Acting as a humectant, the squalene particles harbored in every drop pull moisture out of the air and bind it to the skin, reversing the evaporation and drying process. It is mildly antibacterial as well and gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin.
Indulging in Brigit True Organics olive oil based skin care products will not only renew your vitality, it will make you feel good in your own skin; something everyone deserves!
