Our Olive Oil is extra virgin, cold pressed and organic from a Community Project
Olive Oil is rich in oleic acid, which is easily and deeply absorbed nourishing the outer skin layer (epidermis), to the dermis below (where collagen, elastin and blood vessels are) giving longer-lasting more intense moisturising.
It is also rich in a range of anti-oxidants, the most notable of which are:
- Vitamin A which helps to keep cells healthy, plump and moist which helps to improve resistance to cell damage from sun, bacteria and viruses. It is absorbed with the lipids into the dermis ( where the collagen, elastin and blood vessels are) where it can normalise blood flow to the skin surface, helping with wound healing, a brighter complexion and reduce symptoms of rosacea. Studies have shown vitamin A can also reduce the sensitivity of the sebaceous glands to androgen hormones and normalise the production of sebum. This helps reduce acne and improve skin tone.
- Vitamin E can restore skin elasticity, resilience and suppleness by reducing the effects of free radical damage. It also helps to reduce the appearance of age spots (it helps to decrease the clustering of melanin granules causing pigmentation), wrinkles, stretchmarks and lines. A study published in a 2007 issue of "The Journal of Pathology" found that vitamin E was successful in fighting free radicals and uv damage to maintain younger looking skin.

- Virgin, cold pressed Olive Oil contains the polyphenol hydroxytyrosol, one of the most potent free radical scavenging antioxidants, which has been shown in studies to prevent the oxidation of the protein keratin - an important structural component for skin, which helps to hold skin together and prevent sagging. Keratin is also associated with smoother, brighter skin.

Organic Beeswax also helps the skin to keep free of infections with anti inflammatory, bacterial and anti-viral properties.
It also contains vitamin A and has some emollient (softening) properties.
A 2003 study, published in the German Journal der Deutschen Dermatologischen Gesellschaft, concluded using beeswax for skin conditions or protection might have more success than several popular alternatives. Study participants rated a moisturizer with beeswax 98 percent effective, compared to 67 percent or less for popular commercial barrier creams.
