Virgin Olive Oil
Virgin olive oil is what results after the second pressing of olives. It is made through chemical refining, which means high temperatures. These high temperatures decrease the quality of the olive oil. It is usually cheaper, as it contains less of the nutrients.
Feel like a goddess.
The oil is produced by pressing whole olives, and extracting the oil.
Olive oil is obtained from an olive. It's a traditional tree crop of Spain and also the Mediterranean Basin covering portions of Italy, Greece, Europe, Asia and Africa.
Olive oil is used in beauty products throughout the world, and is also in Ogleby soaps, scrubs and beauty oil.
Polyphenols are found in olive oil as well. Polyphenols are compounds which also act as antioxidants. They help to regulate blood and oxygen to the skin, making it feel cleaner and smoother. They also help repair damaged skin cells.
According to legend, the city of Athens obtained its name from the greek goddess of wisdom and war, Athena. She offered the Athenians an olive tree, while Poseidon offered them a spring of salt water gushing out of a cliff. The olive tree proved to be the better gift. Olive oil was used by athletes and warriors before battle to protect their skin.
It was also used for healing.
Olive oil contains major antioxidants.
Among these are both Vitamin A and Vitamin E.
Vitamin A helps the skin to stay soft, smooth, firm.
Vitamin E is well known for its anti-aging properties, reducing cellular damage. These antioxidants sink deep into your skin without clogging pores, leaving you feeling moisturized, clean, rich, and relaxed.
Olive Oil has a long history of being used for skincare.

The olive branch is a symbol of peace, and was historically worn by brides.
Olive oil also contains squalene, a natural organic compound that is often used as a moisturizer. Squalene regulates oil in the skin, which forms a coating that acts like a barrier against the many pollutants we are faced with everyday.
