Facts about olive oil
Olive oil has been used for many thousands of years. It is known as "the liquid gold" or "the holy oil". The olive is also the symbol of peace and its fruit in particular is surrounded by rituals, myths and legends. This is not without reason as the very valuable olive oil is extracted from this fruit - an ancient panacea against various physical diseases, internal as well as external. Olive oil is very nurturing and healing and harmonises optimally with our skin, which is why it is an important ingredient in many ALKYMEA products.
Olive oil is optimal as massage oil as it has good gliding qualities and is absorbed by the skin without hindering its natural respiration. It also gives the skin an invaluable and natural care which no cream can provide.
