Olive oil is excellent for the skin. It works on all skin types, and is also soothing to the skin. It helps with healing, the relief of itching, and it is excellent for the hair as well. At Nature Certified, we use only the purest form of olive oil, which is  "extra virgin" and the lightest color compared to other forms. Our olive oil is top grade quality. It is high in monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants including vitamin E. Olive oil also absorbs UV radiation.

The botanical name of olive oil is Olea Europaea. The olive tree is a small evergreen which is generally about 50 feet in height. However, it is typically kept at 20 feet with regular pruning. The olive tree is native to the Mediterranean region, to tropical and central Asia, and to various parts of Africa.

Olive oil has been also been used for centuries. It is not clear who first domesticated olive trees. However, one version is that the Egyptians discovered it more than five thousand years ago and used it for body and hair massage. Several other cultures then found additional uses for it. It is extracted from the fruit of the olive tree. The fruit is about three quarters inches long, oval, and somewhat pointy, and the fleshy part is filled with oil.  The fruit contains a single seed. Olive oil extraction does not require chemical solvents, and can be extracted by physical means alone.
