Olive Oil: Great for Cooking, Even Better for Your Skin

Olive Oil isn’t just a great healthy cooking ingredient but also a healthy skin care ingredient.

History of Olive Oil

This “Liquid Gold” dates back to ancient Greece where it was the Holy Grail of products because of its versatility. Olive oil is very rich in vitamins, minerals and natural fatty acids which are great for both your diet and your skin. Because it’s an all natural ingredient it is perfect for sensitive skin. Our Olive Oil Body Crème and our My Natural Beauty Skin Tone Olive Oil Soap are both made with Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which is a powerful anti-aging ingredient used in skin care products. It is extremely rich in antioxidants preventing skin aging and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines all while nourishing the skin to protect it from further damage.

The Clear Essence Olive Oil Body Crème offers a variety of skin care solutions for all skin types. The special formula is blended with unique lipid structures (oil molecules) that seep into the skin for instant hydration. The Extra Virgin Olive Oil is packed with antioxidants that keep your skin looking beautiful and extremely soft. It’s anti-aging properties help increase skin’s firmness and elasticity. And lastly olive oil is a natural antibacterial that helps form a protective shield against bacteria and viruses.

Soaps tend to strip skin of natural oils when they are cleansing away dirt and “bad” oils. This leaves your skin feeling tight and dry after a shower. It is important that your body soap not only cleanses the skin but also hydrates. Our My Natural Beauty Skin Tone Olive Oil Soap is enriched with natural antioxidants, Aloe Vera, Shea Butter and pure Olive Extra Virgin Oil, transforming dry and dehydrated skin into soft radiant skin. It has been clinically shown to improve and be effective against dry and aging skin, as well as hyper pigmentation (acne scars, sun spots). In combination with any of our Platinum Line skin lightening products, the My Natural Beauty Olive Oil soap works to exfoliate to let our creams, gels or lotions better penetrate the skin and fade dark spots and areas affected by hyper pigmentation.

The best thing about both of our Olive Oil products is that it will never leave your skin feeling greasy or oily, just soft and supple as your skin soaks up the olive oil deep into your skin.

Olive Oil Tips

Here are a few extra tips on how to utilize our products!

  1. Add some sea salt to the body crème and use it on damp skin to exfoliate your legs before hair removal. It scrubs off all the dead skin while leaving behind moisturized healthy skin. You’ll notice a huge difference in how soft your skin feels even after hair removal.
  2. Use a small amount of the body crème underneath your eyes right before bed. It will act as a heavy duty eye crème to help rejuvenate the sensitive skin throughout the night.
  3. You can also use the crème as a light cuticle treatment! The extra virgin oil alleviates dry nails and cuticles. Simply rub a small amount around the cuticle area and around the nail. Cuticles stay plump and moist, and nails respond with a natural shine.
  4. Use both the Soap Bar and Body Crème together! They are the perfect combo to fight dryness and anti-aging signs!

    I have been using Clear Essence fade cream or milk for the last 20 years or so. I noticed that you now have a whole lot or ranges. Please let me know how can I have or get:
    Natural Beauty Olive Oil soap and cream. What is recommended for our firmness and elasticity?

    • Hi Florence,
      Our Platinum Line products are specifically formulated to treat discolorations and dark spots on the skin in order to create a full body even skin tone. Once you have achieved your desired complexion we recommend switching to our My Natural Beauty Line composed of specialized soaps, body creams and sun protection to maintain your skin by keeping it hydrated, cleansed and protected from environmental elements. Our My Natural Beauty Olive Oil soap bar helps to alleviate dry skin and exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells to help your lotion fully penetrate the skin. The Olive Oil Body Cream is a thick body butter to also curb dryness and keep skin supple. This would definitely be a good regimen to help with firmness and elasticity. We would also recommend to check out one of our body oils such as the Specialist Skin Care body oil which is also apart of the My Natural Beauty Line. Use the oil immediately out of the shower on damp skin or add directly to bath water for immediate hydration. The Specialist Oil contains rosemary, chamomile and sunflower extracts along with Vitamins A & E to correct uneven skin tones and add collagen to the skin. We hope this answers your question. Feel free to let us know if you have any questions or concerns!
