Derived from pressing an entire olive fruit, olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids: loaded in antioxidants adn emoliants. Olive oil is wonderful for all skin types. It’s unlikely to clog pores, feel excessively oily when applied. It moisturizes gently and can help calm irritations such as over-washing, over-exfoliation, and irritation from aggressive actives. The antioxidants help fend off pollutants in the air (free radicals). These microparticles can weigh down, dry out, and prematurely age skin.
