The composition of extra virgin olive oil

Olive oil comes from the fruits of the Olea europaea trees. It consists primarily of oleic acid, with smaller amounts of other fatty acids such as linoleic acid and palmitic acid. More than 200 different chemical compounds have been found in olive oil, including sterols, carotenoids, triterpene alcohols, and phenolic compounds. Hydrophilic phenols are the most common antioxidants in olive oil. The content of phenols has antioxidant properties higher than those of vitamin E.


How does it receive?

Extra virgin olive oil - it is obtained from the first cold pressing. This species is of the highest quality and healthiest because it retains all the useful properties and it is the first oil extracted from olives. Its acidity is low between 0.8% and 1%.

The benefits of extra virgin oil  

antioxidant content

Olive oil can help prevent premature signs of skin aging.

Olive oil acts as an antioxidant, which is a substance that prevents oxidation. Oxidation is a process that can produce free radicals, which are chemicals that can potentially damage cells and contribute to cancer.

When applied to the skin, antioxidants can prevent premature aging. Also, some studies have shown that applying olive oil to the skin after sun exposure can fight cancer cells.

vitamin content

Olive oil contains fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Some of these vitamins can be good for the skin. For example, people have used vitamin E oil topically throughout history to treat a variety of skin conditions, including psoriasis and eczema.

antibacterial effects

Olive oil has been shown to have antibacterial properties. However, there is very little research on the ability of olive oil to control bacteria on the skin.

One study looked at the effects of the use of olive oil and coconut oil on Staphylococcus aureus bacteria on the skin. The results found that both oils exhibit antibacterial properties, eliminating bacteria. Olive oil can also improve healing in people with leg ulcers caused by type 2 diabetes.

Moisturizing effect

Olive oil is a popular natural moisturizer that is often used to soften both skin and hair. 

Allergies to extra virgin olive oil

As with any substance, olive oil can cause an allergic reaction in some people.
