Liquid gold, in addition to promoting hydration, is also a natural sunscreen
Madrid, August 11, 2016.
Olive oil, the basis of the famous Mediterranean Diet, is already a more than confirmed ally of health. However, in addition to taking care of ourselves inside, the olive juice has valuable properties that help us to do it from the outside as well. In summer, when the sun’s rays do not let our skin rest, adding this product to our menu and including it in our beauty routine can lead us to look more beautiful, tanned and, above all, healthy and cared for.
Sunlight is one of the most important causes of skin aging. In addition to accelerating the process significantly, it causes dryness and dehydration.
It is for this reason that during the summer period one of our biggest concerns is to take care of our body and face of the attacks of the sun king. Of course, without dispensing with that tanned tone that makes us look better. Faced with this dilemma, we spend three months debating between what protects and what tans, without knowing that there are products that help both the first and the second, as is the case of olive oil.
The famous food is being increasingly used for skin care thanks to its abundance of antioxidants (vitamins A and E, as well as some polyphenols), agents that prevent the damage of free radicals in the body and that allow us to Keep it hydrated and away from dryness.
But its qualities do not stop there, since it also helps us to prevent the damage of UV radiation. The olive oil has a sun protection factor (SPF) 7, totally natural. In this sense, according to Fátima Solé, author of La Botica Escondida, «it is important to use pure virgin oil, 100% natural, better if it is cold extracted and ecological, since the more processed it is, the less protective it will have, since it will have lost a good part of its active principles and properties «.
INNOLIVA, as a leading company in the production of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, defends the use of this product in all its facets. Once again, its ‘premium’ oil may be the most appropriate choice, given that thanks to the dedication it offers throughout the year to its olive trees and fruits, it manages to harvest a healthy olive and in an optimum state of maturity that, through cold processing, results in an EVOO with excellent sensory and healthy qualities.
The company, which has its head office in Pamplona (Spain), owns more than 5,000 hectares of irrigated olive groves, located in Spain and Portugal, where the Mediterranean climate gives the olive tree the ideal environment for the development and maturation of the fruit; and it favors the obtaining of Extra Virgin Olive Oils with excellent sensory qualities.
With its production system, they guarantee the integral traceability of the entire process: from the olive tree to the final customer.
They make their Extra Virgin Olive Oil cold in the shortest time possible from the entrance of the olive in the oil mill. And they take care of the oil already produced to maintain their excellent sensory and healthy qualities as long as possible.
