Moisturising and protecting
Olive oil moisturises skin and hair, helping to feed it and protect it from pollutants and sun damage. Rich in vitamin E, oleic acid (omega 9 monounsaturated fatty acid), and a substance called squalene that is also found in the oil (sebum) our skin naturally produces, helping to lubricate and waterproof it. Olive oil also contains hydroxytyrosol, which is thought to be one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world.
Our certified Fair Trade oil comes from the women-led cooperative Sindyanna of Galilee in the northern region of Israel. Sindyanna takes its name from the palistinian oak tree, which represents endurance, stability and a rootedness to the land and honours the Arab citizensof Israel who remained on their land during the 1948 war. It was founded by Jewish and Palestinian citizens of Israel to provide access to markets for Palestinian farmers, as a demonstration of peaceful cooperation and to empower women.Our organic extra virgin olive oil has been grown without the use of pesticides, chemicals or fertilisers. To make it, olives are hand harvested and gathered in nets, then cold pressed to extract the oil.
