About Our Oils
Olive oil has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for skin care needs and is still very popular today. It is a leading ingredient in a variety of lotions, soaps and other cosmetics.
The most prized is extra virgin (cold pressed) olive oil which is the purest extract available because it comes from the first pressing of the olives. Extra virgin olive oil is most often used to moisturize the skin and has strong antioxidants like Vitamin E and A, as well as phytosterols and polyphenols. Antioxidants stimulate the cells to create a healthier, smoother and firmer state.
When olive oil is infused with activated oxygen (ozone), it takes on a gel-like consistency. Ozonated olive oil is made by bubbling pure, highly concentrated ozone into organic olive oil. Using medical-grade oxygen keeps nitric oxides from forming or entering the oil. The oil’s high quality is maintained during the process of ozonation through the use of only the best cold plasma ozone generators to insure that no heat is produced. The end result is the freshest and purest ozonated organic olive oil available today.
