The first cultivation and hand harvesting of olive trees began in Crete, around 3500BC during the Minoan civilization. Crete’s olive trees are amongst the oldest in the world. In Minoan times, olive oil was used as food and in cosmetics. Olive oil from ancient times was famous for its numerous healing properties. The antioxidant substances that it contains and chlorophyll make it one of the most active oils used for skin, nails and hair but also for the entire body. Scientific searches have shown that olive oil:
1. Contains antioxidant ingredients, such as polyphenols, vitamin E, vitamin A, D3 and K, which provide skin cell’s elements with an effective protection against oxidation damages.
2. Contains the necessary fatty acids, like vitamin F, key ingredients to the composition of the skin’s layers.
3. Offers a good protection against free radicals and helps to prevent cell ageing process.
