Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil*
Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil is the oil obtained from the ripe fruit of Olea europaea. Its most beneficial functions are as emollient, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth. The oil contains several essential fatty acids, including oleic, palmitic, and linoleic acids, which aid in replenishing the skin’s lipid barrier. A strong barrier is important to prevent harmful things like allergens, bacteria, and irritants from entering the skin. In addition to providing protection from environmental factors, the skin’s lipid barrier also functions to prevent excessive water loss. Olive fruit oil is also an excellent ingredient for dry, damaged, or irritated skin.
