olive oil and skin

The Greeks and Romans used olive oil for skincare. Egyptian women mixed olive oil with milk, wax, cypress berries and finely chopped frankincense grains to make facial masks.

Modern beauty care has rediscovered olive oil, which combines the benefits of the substances squalene (an unsaturated compound that plays a major part in human metabolism), phytosterols (sometimes has a lowering effect on the overall cholesterol level), and tocopherol, known as vitamin E. Olive oil promotes a high level of skin protection. It keeps the skin both moist and soft and prevents it from drying out.

Olive oil also has benefits on hair – it regenerates it and makes it softer and stronger, protecting it from the environment, from wind and excessive sun.

Combining our family’s experience and today’s knowledge, Frantoio di Sant `Agata d`Oneglia has created the superb DI NATURA range of products.
