In cosmetology, in extract form, the olive leaf is anti-oxidising and anti-free radical. It has healing, antibacterial, toning, detoxifying and protective properties. 18% of the phytochemical composition of an olive leaf is made up of oleuropein. This is a powerful polyphenol anti-oxidant, with up to 400 times more anti-oxidising action than vitamin C, and is able to absorb oxygenated free radicals. Just like the olive itself, the olive leaf is known for its incredible health benefits and plays an important role in protecting health and preventing ageing. It provides the skin with an optimum and long-lasting level of hydration. A true natural anti-ageing “beauty ally” when it comes to the free radicals that are responsible for cell alteration and skin ageing.
