Well, Did You Know. . . .
The oleic acid in certified organic extra virgin olive oil is 1% higher than regular olive oil and is in its purest state and does not go through a synthetic process like regular olive oil. By having a higher count of oleic acid when combining it with other ingredients we are achieving higher benefits. High quality olive oil, such as certified organic extra virgin, is full of linoleic acids, oleic acids, palmitic acids and polyphenols. These acids actually work by trapping water into your skin, ensuring that your skin is hydrated. T
Polyphenols are very beneficial to our skin for a variety of reasons. One reason is that they are antioxidants which means that when absorbed into our skin, they will combat the free radicals, preventing them from doing damage. Two other benefits of polyphenol is that it offers protection against ultraviolet rays and will also encourage new cell growth, so that new cells are made to replace any damaged skin cells. Thus, reversing signs of aging like sun spots, fine lines, and wrinkles making it a staple for anti-aging products.
When you use certified organic extra virgin olive oil, you are minimizing the impurities that you are putting into your skin and maximizing the healthy and essential elements for skin care.
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! That’s why we love certified organic extra virgin olive oil and use it in all of YASOU skin care’s beautiful creams.
