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.
A few ways to incorporate it into your routine include:
- Moisturizing face cream: Mix equal parts high phenolic EVOO with a light, unscented lotion to create a nourishing moisturizer.
- Exfoliating body scrub: Mix equal parts high phenolic EVOO and sugar to create a gentle exfoliating scrub for the body.
- Hair treatment: Massage a small amount of high phenolic EVOO into the ends of damp hair to hydrate and protect from split ends.
Note: Always patch test before using on larger areas and remember a little goes a long way!
