Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is the highest quality olive oil and is made from pure, cold-pressed olives. High polyphenolic EVOO contains a higher level of polyphenols, antioxidants found in olive oil, compared to regular EVOO. The higher polyphenolic content results in a more robust, fruity flavor and provides added health benefits.
High phenolic extra virgin olive oil can be used in natural cosmetic products such as face and body creams, scrubs, and hair treatments. Its antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamins nourish and hydrate the skin, while its anti-inflammatory properties help to soothe and reduce redness.
