We could wax poetic about skincare all day — and we have — but olive oil has definitely earned today’s spotlight. This pantry staple moonlights as a skincare hero and has a ton of benefits that’ll leave your skin happy, hydrated, and glowing.
Amy Hart, Chief Innovation Officer at Elevation Labs, says "Olive oil isn’t just great for your skin as is — we are now working with a variety of functional ingredients that use olive oil as the starting base material, such as emulsifiers and surfactants. Not only is this a sustainable option for plant-based functional ingredients, these types of ingredients work synergistically with other oils to deliver natural, plant-based skin benefits."
If you’ve ever looked at that bottle of olive oil sitting on your kitchen counter and wondered how to incorporate it into your skincare routine, congratulations — you’ve come to the right place.
