Aromatic Description: Olive Oil has an appealing odour, but an odour that can influence essential oils if in a blend.
100% pure, unrefined, cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil. High in monounsaturated fatty acids, Oleic Acid and Palmitoleic Acid, polyphenols, Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C and E. It is normally a yellow to green liquid with a mild characteristic aroma. It is cloudy in appearance as minute particles of the fruit are present in the oil. Excellent emollient. Suitable for all skin types including those with mature skin. Ideal for use in make your own lotions, creams, balms, soaps and haircare products.
It contains a high amount, around 70%, of the essential fatty acid Oleic Acid, an Omega 9 acid which makes this oil super moisturising, ideal for those with very dry skin. The oil penetrates deeply into the skin and is known to provide a shield against the elements. It absorbs at a fairly slow rate so is ideal for those requiring intensive moisturisation.
It also contains a significant amount of the Omega 7 fatty acid Palmitoleic Acid, which is present in younger skin but diminishes with age. Olive Extra Virgin Oil is high in natural antioxidants and vitamins which makes it an excellent choice for skincare, particularly beneficial for those with mature skin. Antioxidants help fight damage causing free radicals in the skin that causes premature aging.
