Harvesting our own farm-grown olives is just the first step of our truly unique production process. Our small-batch production ensures that our skincare is always fresh and always effective, rather than producing a large supply that sits in a warehouse. Our skincare is meticulously formulated to provide just the right amount of potent, plant-based materials for our skin.
We never refine our extra virgin olive oil and we make it a point to use non-refined oils in our skincare. Because our extra virgin olive oil isn’t filtered, it’s richer in antioxidants like tocopherol (vitamin E) and polyphenols, as well as oleic acid, linoleic acid, and omega 6 & omega 9 fatty acids – as it should be!
We use every part of the olive in our skincare – not just the oil. From the leaves to the pits, our R&D team researched and developed our proprietary olive fruit extract from the olive “black water,” and olive leaf extract. These antioxidant-rich extracts aren’t only effective at reducing inflammation and preventing the signs of aging, they also sustainably utilize what is normally discarded in the olive industry.
We are proudly fully natural and we never use ingredients that are harmful for our skin or for the environment. We make it our priority to source our non-olive derived ingredients from farms around the world, in pursuit of unique botanicals that deliver unparalleled freshness and potency. Knowing the source of our key components means that we can vouch for the quality of our skincare and its contents. That means that our skincare is free of artificial scents and colors, SLS/SLES, parabens, phthalates, and mineral oils, among many other known irritants and problematic additives. As part of our holistic vision, we are cruelty-free and never test on our animal friends.
Developing fully natural olive oil skincare is not easy. There’s a reason why traditional cosmetics companies use harsh preservatives, synthetic scents, and other non-natural materials; they are cheaper and easier to produce, and they have a longer shelf life. But we know that these synthetics aren’t actually healthy for our skin or for the environment – and can even be cancerous. We choose to develop skincare the right way.
We could not have accomplished all of this without keeping our focus on R&D. We have built and now operate our own research labs with our own dedicated specialists to keep improving and delivering the best truly natural skincare products to our customers.
Through our research, we now uniquely and exclusively use every part of the olive and never dispose the residue. Fresh olives contain approximately 30% husk (the olive flesh itself), 20% olive oil and 50% “black water,” which has a very high density of antioxidants that cannot be absorbed and harmfully builds up over time in the soil and groundwater. Rather than dumping this material, as most olive mills do, we developed a groundbreaking, patented proprietary process to ferment the black water so that it is no longer environmentally detrimental. This means it’s safe for many uses as a fully natural active ingredient. We use this key ingredient in our skincare and in our Eco Olea line of household cleaning products, turning what was considered waste into a purifying, antioxidant-rich resource.
Our lab is responsible for developing our unique formulations and maintaining the highest standard of quality control. We test each batch before shipment, to ensure that our customers get only the best quality skincare.
