We started Olive + M because we’re passionate about sharing the powerful benefits of plant-based oils. Mother Nature gave us amazing, natural ingredients to heal, feed and protect our skin, that’s why nothing in our formulas was made in a lab.
When you use harsh cleansers or products to dry your skin out, you’re stripping your skin of its natural oils — aka sebum — which is there for a reason, because it’s 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 skin’s natural sebum, so when you put it on your skin, it recognizes it and is easily absorbed. Our oil-based 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 you’re putting on your skin too! No unknown ingredients, crazy hard-to-pronounce chemicals or toxins. All of our small batch 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 don’t use though? Water. That means you’re getting 100% pure oil blends in every product. Water promotes bacteria growth, and since Olive + M doesn’t use water in our oil-based skin care formulas, we don’t have to use any chemical-based preservatives. Instead, the high levels of antioxidants in our oils act as natural preservatives.
