The Start of Olive Reign
Did you know that when you use our Olive Virgin Oil, you are moisturizing your skin with one of the most prestigious grades of organic olive oil available in the market? Back in the ’70s, our founder discovered the highest grade of olive oil, called Flor de Aceite, which translates to Flower of the Oil, while he was traveling through the lush, green groves of southern Spain. There, he met an olive farmer whose family has been growing the caviar of olive oil for more than 200 years. That precious olive oil inspired our founder to create a line of skincare products harnassing the powerhouse properties of this Flor de Aceite. The first product DHC created was the Flor de Aceite in its pure form, lightly refined to better absorb into the skin: Olive Virgin Oil.
What makes it so powerful?
Olive Virgin Oil gets its powerful properties from an antioxidant-rich fatty acid called oleic acid. The oleic acid found in olive oil is similar to the one found in skin’s natural oil, which makes it the perfect moisturizer because it hydrates without irritating your skin or clogging your pores.
In addition, Olive Virgin Oil, and olives, in general, are high in antioxidants. For your skin, that means they help banish free radicals that cause aging and protect skin from environmental stressors. If those aren’t reasons enough for you, then consider the fact that olive oil has been used for hundreds of years in the Mediterranean for its health and beauty benefits. It has stood the test of time.
The Reign Continues
Olive Virgin Oil welcomes in two new products to continue its legacy of providing glowing skin: Olive Virgin Oil Crystal Skin Essence and Olive Virgin Oil Essential Cream.
Olive Virgin Oil Crystal Skin Essence
A hydrating serum infused with organic olive oil
When you first see Olive Virgin Oil Crystal Essence, you’ll notice it has a sparkling shimmer, almost as if bits of gold are floating within the formula. The gold flecks of glow suspended within the hydrating serum are actually specks of Olive Virgin Oil — yup, when we say infused, we mean it! This serum is brilliant in that it nourishes the skin, adds a boost of hydration and absorbs quickly. Use as a pre-moisturizing booster to multiply the benefits of your skincare routine.
Olive Virgin Oil Essential Cream
Luxe moisturizer infused with organic olive oil
This luxurious cream has a light and airy feel but packs moisturizing power. Perfect for the colder months ahead, Olive Virgin Oil Cream conditions the skin while promoting the appearance of elasticity and the organic olive oil provides antioxidant protection! Your skin will be left looking soft and feeling radiant. Massage the cream onto skin after using our Olive Virgin Oil Crystal Essence. If your skin is on the drier side, mix in or layer with Olive Virgin Oil.
