Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Crete of Greece has millenniums of history in cultivating olive trees and using olive oil in food and cosmetics. According t the International Olive Council, medical studies have found many antioxidants (vitamin E and polyphenols), vitamins and minerals in olive oil. The organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a multitude of beneficial properties for the health, the development and the maintenance of the skin. Olive oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that it can bring relief to inflamed skin. This thus makes it a good aid in specific therapies to treat skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis and seborrheic eczemas.
Extra virgin olive oil is one of the best beauty secrets. It has the added advantage of containing strong antioxidants, making it a natural anti-aging ingredient. These antioxidants help fight off free radicals which attack cells and speed up the aging process.
Aging leads to steady structural and functional skin damage. During the aging process, some main changes will occur. They include the thinning of the inner and outer layers of the skin, loss of elasticity, lessening of cushion in the area between the 2 layers of skin, fibrosis and the reduction of tissue’s ability to fight against and repair damage.
External factors, like the sun rays and pollution, expedite aging by generating free radicals. The use of inhibitors could reduce the cell damage. One perfect example of natural inhibitor is extra virgin olive oil, whose lipid profile is very similar to that of human skin. On top of polyphenols, extra virgin olive oil is rich in vitamins A, D, K and E, the main source of protection against the free radicals that produce cell oxidation, i.e. anti-aging.
Crete, Greece, is 8 times of area as Hong Kong. There you can find as many as 30 millions olive trees with a lot over a hundred years old. Many are cultivated organically. BIOselect® choose only certified organic extra virgin olive oil as the active ingredient of all their products. Watch the video below to learn more about the production of organic olive oil in Crete.
There is an aromatic plant that can be found in Crete since the ancient time. People tried to cultivate it outside Crete but all in vain. This plant’s scientific name is called Diktamnus origan (Origanum Dictamnus) or called Dittany.
Since the old days, Dittany has served as a panacea to various diseases and as a healing of wounds. Due to its physicochemical properties and particularly of the active element of carvacrol, Dittany has antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial properties. It can nourish and hydrate dehydrated skin. The plant’s healing properties are also certain because of the quantities of thymol found in its aboveground parts. Thus it is a good natural remedy to skin problems, like eczema, acne.
