The Scientific Research

Olive oil, health and beauty from time immemorial

From 2004 to 2006 the Facos Innovation, with the collaboration of scientists and dermatologists, researched the properties of the Olive Oil produced in Olevano Sul Tusciano, where the company is placed, verifying that the Olevanese Extra-virgin Olive Oil has many important cosmetological properties.

From the Egyptians to the Greeks, the Phoenicians to the Romans, many people attributed its origin to the intervention of the Gods, and have taken advantage of its incredible nutritious, medicinal and cosmetic properties. 
Today, thanks to progress in scientific research, we are able to give names to the beneficial substances that olive oil contains: squalene, tocopherols and phytosterols, all precious elements for the beauty and protection of skin and hair. 
Highly compatible with the natural acidity of our skin, olive oil is rich in precious substances, which soothe, protect and moisturize. Moreover, a substance extracted from the leaves (olive leaf extract) is rich in Iridoid Glycosides (Oleuropein, Oleoside) and Flavonoids. 
Thanks to its powerful antioxidant activity, olive leaf extract is an active substance known to protect our skin from free radicals, which are the main causes of ageing of organs and tissues.
