The benefits of olives

Lately, there has been a heavy shift toward naturality in the beauty care industry, and this has led to some companies and brands to focus on one, particularly small, source. Olives. One of the most well-known celebrities to stress the benefits of olive-derived ingredients is Jennifer Lopez, which is emphasized in her skincare line JLO Beauty. When asked how she was able to maintain her flawless skin, she credited her mother’s centuries-old beauty go-to – olive oil [1].

What’s so astounding about this beauty go-to is olive trees can actually live thousands of years - 3000 years to date to be exact! And with something that lives for thousands of years there must some type of secret - right? Well, when it comes to olives and olive trees it’s not really a secret!

Olives are filled with molecules that offer a huge variety of benefits:

  • Anti-aging
  • Moisturization
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Hydration
  • Hair growth stimulation
  • Barrier function restoration
  • Skin firmness
  • Skin elasticity
  • Nourishment

With so many benefits, companies have begun to source directly from olives in order to provide ingredients that nourish, protect and rejuvenate the skin.
