Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra virgin olive oil is made by crushing olives and extracting the juice. It is simply fresh, healthy olives and contains the beneficial nutrients that olive oil is famous for.
Extra virgin is the highest quality olive oil classification. It must be produced entirely by mechanical means without the use of any solvents, and under temperatures that will not degrade the oil.
Cold-pressed olive oil is packed with antioxidants which helps minimise environmental skin damage and works as an excellent skin firmer and moisturiser. It is an age old beauty secret due to it's ability to help replenish and restore the skin’s balance, elasticity, and hydration, as well as prevent premature ageing.
Our olive oil is sourced from the Douro region of Portugal where some of the best olive oils in the world are made.
When applied to the skin, beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental damage, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, however, beeswax doesn’t “suffocate” the skin, and won’t clog pores.
Beeswax is high in vitamin A, which encourages healthy skin cell production and works as a natural humectant, to help your skin stay hydrated over time.
Our beeswax is certified organic and locally sourced.
