Olive Oil (Olea Europaea) - Organic
Produced by a small dedicated family co-operative in southern Spain, our superb extra virgin oil comes from the first cold-pressing of the fruit, conserving all its full antioxidant vitamin E and other vital constituents like squalene (a natural skin component). In ancient Greece, athletes ritually rubbed this “liquid gold” all over their body in the firm belief it conferred strength and youthfulness. More recent research has shown that olive oil has an excellent moisturising effect on the skin and leaves a breathable protective film that holds in moisture. It is used widely in our skincare and to make our mild long-lasting Castile cleansing bars suitable for the most sensitive skin.
