We started Olive + M because weíre passionate about sharing the powerful benefits of plant-based oils. Mother Nature gave us amazing, natural ingredients to heal, feed and protect our skin, thatís why nothing in our formulas was made in a lab.
When you use harsh cleansers or products to dry your skin out, youíre stripping your skin of its natural oils ó aka sebum ó which is there for a reason, because itís a protective barrier for our skin. When you take that oil away, you skin freaks out and makes more. It starts to overcompensate. Olive oil mimics your skinís natural sebum, so when you put it on your skin, it recognizes it and is easily absorbed. Our gluten free skin care products are also packed with skin boosting antioxidants, omegas and vitamins.
Each and every one of our ingredients has a purpose when it comes to benefiting your skin. Not only that, but you know exactly what youíre putting on your skin too! No unknown ingredients, crazy hard-to-pronounce chemicals or toxins. All of our non-GMO skin care product formulas start with a base of olive oil, and combined with other plant based oils and natural ingredients to nourish your skin with only the best Mother Nature has to offer.
An ingredient that we donít use though? Water. That means youíre getting 100% pure oil blends in every product. Water promotes bacteria growth, and since Olive + M doesnít use water in our non-GMO skin care formulas, we donít have to use any chemical-based preservatives. Instead, the high levels of antioxidants in our oils act as natural preservatives.
