Olive oil closely resembles the chemical composition of your skin’s natural oil (sebum), which gives it a strong affinity to human skin, allowing it to penetrate into the skin quickly and easily.

Olive oil has the added advantage of providing strong antioxidants, like Vitamins A and E, that help repair and renew skin that has been damaged from overexposure to sun, air pollution, and other modern-day environmental hazards. These antioxidants have the natural ability to stimulate cells and return skin to a firmer, smoother, and healthier state.
