Olive Oil Environmental Working Group Ingredient

Scientific Name: {Olea europaea}
Common Name: {Olive fruit oil}

Though the concept of “oil” is often something that we combat in the skincare community, olive oil is packed with nutrients and when applied topically, can have some serious benefits. Unlike other oils that may clog pores and cause acne, olive oil functions as a moisturizer and as a delivery system. This helps to lock in hydration. It also helps the absorption other nutrients that it needs. Now is the time to change our thinking about olive oil, which is vastly different from the oil that our skin naturally secrets and from the oils that can clog pores or wreak havoc on our health. What are some of the most beneficial properties of olive oil?

  1. Olive oil is an anti-inflammatory. Like ibuprofen, olive oil is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. This means that if you have inflamed or irritated skin, a topical application of olive oil may be just what you need to wipe away that redness. How does it work? Olive oil contains a little miracle ingredient called oleocanthal. It actively fights the causes of inflammation. If you have dry, itchy, or irritated skin, using olive oil is a great way to soothe those patches naturally.
  1. Olive oil may be an effective sun screen. Olives are naturally high in antioxidants, making them great for people whose skin is damaged by sun exposure. Antioxidants protect the skin from damage and give it time to heal, fighting off the mutations that could eventually become cancer if allowed to grow unchecked. This also means that olive oil is great for collagen production, which is easily broken down by sun exposure.
  1. Olive oil is great for lips! If you have chronically chapped lips, it may be time to start a daily routine of applying olive oil to that kisser. While some lip balms are effective, olive oil can help restore a natural balance to the thin skin of lips. Even if you can’t find a lip balm that contains this oil, you can just apply it with a finger.
  1. Olive oil is beneficial for blemished faces. Olive oil is a natural antibiotic property. It moisturizes so the face is balanced. Not only will it help keep your face clean and moisturized, but it will wash away the bacteria that interacts with the oils of your face to clog pores. This is great for women who have both irritated skin and acne and want to fight both with one product!
