The Olives of Super Virgin Olive Oil
The olives used to produce Super Virgin Olive Oil come from the Ushimado Farm - the single largest olive plantation in Ushimado, Okayama Prefecture in Japan. Located on the opposite shore of Shodoshima, this sprawling estate of olive trees is also a popular tourist attraction for local and foreign travellers.

Why Super Virgin Olive Oil?
Olive Oil: A Magical Beauty Booster
Traditionally used for beauty treatment since the Ancient Greeks, olive oil remains a popular favourite in many Mediterranean countries for its natural medicinal properties. Thanks to its extremely versatile nutritional values, it is suitable for use both internally and externally.
Olive oil contains three major antioxidants: vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols. These powerful antioxidants help protect the skin from premature aging by restoring skin smoothness and protecting against the damage of UV and free radicals. They are also known to minimise the chances of skin cancer by inhibiting growth of tumour cells.
In contrast with certain commercial moisturisers that can clog pores and aggravate existing skin conditions, olive oil penetrates deeply into the skin while providing a cleansing effect without clogging pores.
Because olive oil has a similar molecular structure to our skin’s natural oils, olive oil cleansers effectively cleanse the skin without stripping away its precious oils, resulting in balanced cleansing for natural protection and hydration.
Having regular olive oil massages will enhance your blood circulation, giving you healthy glowing skin and keeping you youthfully radiant. You can heat olive oil with your favourite essential oil for a few seconds to treat your skin to the pampering it deserves. Take care not to burn the olive oil while heating it.
The regenerative property of olive oil helps stimulate the skin’s healing process. Just apply the oil on affected areas to soothe and heal skin irritations and sunburn. Regular application also helps reduce the appearance of scars over time.
Other unique uses of olive oil as a beauty treatment include nail and cuticle care, eye makeup remover, a substitute for shaving cream, hair massage and deep conditioning – the list goes on and on. Simply running a few drops through your hair will give you softer and more lustrous locks.
