Radical catcher, remedy and supplier of moisture in one
The olive grows as a stone fruit on an olive tree, and has been admired as a healing plant for a long time. Since the olive tree plant flourishes best in the Mediterranean, the fruits and the oil are also an integral part of Mediterranean cuisine. But it also has a long tradition of use in cosmetic applications. Even Cleopatra knew about its caring, beautifying effect and rubbed her body with olive oil regularly.
Moisture for a delicate skin feeling
Since olive oil is made from very small molecules, it can be particularly easily spread over skin and is quickly absorbed. The fatty acids contained in the oil support the body’s own skin protection layer, because they are very similar to the fatty acids in our skin fat. In addition, it penetrates deep into the skin to bind the moisture in this location. Your skin therefore remains wonderfully delicate and supple. The unsaturated oil acids of the olive also have a positive effect on cell development. They therefore combat free radicals and can smooth out small wrinkles.

Vitamins for a firm skin appearance
Olive oil includes, amongst other things, the secondary plant material Vitamin E, which is an effective radical catcher and increases the collagen content of the skin. Skin therefore looks firmer, fresher and younger. Skin damage can heal quicker since the cells are renewed more quickly. Scar formation can therefore also be reduced. Additionally, Vitamin E also helps to protect your skin from damaging solar rays.
Minerals for good skin tolerability
Olive oil is rich in many valuable minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium or phosphor and contains important trace elements, for example iron. In addition, numerous vitamins as well as secondary plant materials are included (for example oleoncanthal). All of these ingredients ensure an antiseptic effect. This means that oil disinfects your skin and encourages healing of wounds at the same time. It is also well tolerated and is therefore perfectly suitable for skin affected by neurodermatitis.
