YASOU natural skin care takes great pride in using certified organic extra virgin olive oil in all of our products. Why? Extra Virgin Olive Oil is LOADED with nutrients and antioxidants like Vitamin A and E, It penetrates deep into the skin, repairing sun damage while promoting elasticity to your skin. The same qualities and benefits you receive when ingesting extra virgin olive oil, you receive, when used in your skin care regime.
Using extra virgin olive oil on your face, when used correctly, will NOT contribute to oily skin. It can actually help it. In order to understand why olive oil will not make your skin oily, you’ll need to understand why skin becomes oily in the first place. This may be another blog post topic to come in the near future.
We use Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil in all of our products because the oleic acid is 1% higher than regular olive oil. It remains in it’s purest state not going through a synthetic process like regular olive oil. A higher count of oleic acid combined with other ingredients allows our products to achieve a higher level of benefits to the skin. In addition to oleic acid, high quality certified organic extra virgin olive oil is full of linoleic acids, palmitic acids and polyphenols. The acids trap water into your skin, ensuring that your skin is hydrated.
Polyphenols are very beneficial to our skin because they are antioxidants. When absorbed into our skin, they combat free radicals, preventing them from doing damage. Polyphenol also offers protection against ultraviolet rays and encourages new cell growth.
We use certified organic extra virgin olive oil, to minimize impurities in our skincare line and to maximize essential elements for healthy skin.
Fact: Olive oil – sometimes referred to as “liquid gold” – is closer in chemical structure to the skin’s natural oil than any other naturally occurring oil! It penetrates and hydrates efficiently and naturally!
