Although most people are aware of olive oil as an essential food supplement with many nutritional benefits, very few know that its first usage was as a cosmetic extraction.
It is a widely spread view that ancient man discovered olive oil after stepping with wounded bare feet on olives, which had been dropped on the soil. The olive oil that was coming out of the fruit was a refreshing reliever for his tired legs. Archaeological evidence comes to prove this, with olive oil amphorae since early Minoan time appearing to contain herbs for medical purposes.
It was also Hippocrates, probably the most outstanding figure in the history on medicine, that in the 5th century B.C. recommends olive oil for certain ailments, as well as for healing abrasions, muscles invigoration and skin soothing from dry climate effects.
Olive oil contains gallic acid tannins, iridoids, flavonoids and sugars that have intensive cell stimulating, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, astringent and moisturizing action on the human skin.
Thus, olive oil has proven to be an effective multipurpose agent for the creation of high quality cosmetic products.
