4 Benefits of Exfoliating With Olive Oil

In the realm of skin health, exfoliation is a celebrated ritual — almost a rite of passage for those embarking on their skincare journeys. But navigating the world of exfoliants can be nuanced, and determining which ingredients will exfoliate your skin while leaving it feeling nourished and hydrated rather than tight and dry can be a difficult hurdle to jump.

Until now, that is. Our Triple Active Exfoliator is infused with a range of nourishing ingredients, but the real star of its formulation is olive oil. Why do you want to exfoliate with olive oil? Let’s delve deeper into this topic.

What Are the Benefits of Exfoliating With Olive Oil?

While exfoliation can help reveal a fresh and glowing complexion, it can also contribute to dryness and irritation if you use harsh ingredients. Here are some benefits that can come with using olive oil in your exfoliant.

1. Soothes Redness

Olive oil is often celebrated for its innate soothing properties. 

Renowned for its abundance of squalane and other fatty acids, it mirrors the natural sebum our skin produces. When incorporated into an exfoliant, the magic of olive oil unfolds by calming the skin and significantly reducing redness, which can sometimes be a natural byproduct of exfoliation.

Choosing an exfoliant enriched with olive oil can be transformative, especially for individuals with sensitive skin or those battling visible blemishes. It can encourage the gentle removal of dead skin cells and also act as a therapeutic, calming embrace for irritated skin.

2. Moisturizes Skin

In the world of skincare, the dilemma often lies in finding an exfoliant that reveals fresh skin without compromising on hydration. Olive oil helps our exfoliant strike this delicate balance. 

Unlike many exfoliants that ruthlessly strip the skin of its cherished natural oils, olive oil can help provide deep and lasting moisture. It envelopes the skin, ensuring it appears quenched and plump after exfoliation. 

3. Supports the Skin Barrier

At the forefront of skin's defense is the skin barrier, a shield that stands guard against potential pathogens while also preserving essential moisture. 

The peril of regular exfoliation, especially with abrasive products, is the inadvertent weakening of this protective shield, ushering in problems like dehydration, sensitivity, and flare-ups. Enter olive oil. 

Brimming with beneficial lipids and nutrients, olive oil works diligently to support this barrier. It weaves a protective mantle, ensuring that even after rigorous exfoliation, the skin stays looking radiant, lush, and clear.

4. Rich in Antioxidants

Olive oil’s acclaim in skincare isn't just because of its hydrating prowess but also its rich antioxidant profile. Teeming with vitamin E, polyphenols, and several other compounds, it stands as a robust shield against the onslaught of free radicals, which are notorious for hastening the aging process. 

Environmental stressors like pollution and toxins constantly challenge our skin. However, olive oil ensures that the newly revealed skin is nurtured and primed to combat these external aggressors.

What Is the Triple Active Exfoliator?

In the realm of skincare, our Triple Active Exfoliator is a remarkable game-changer. Designed to resurface your skin with an extraordinary blend of ingredients, our formula employs the whole-plant nutrition of olive oil, olive leaf water, and crushed olive pits for a balanced, bright, and buffed complexion. 

Papaya and pineapple enzymes help to further enrich this blend, breaking down the bonds holding dead skin cells together to help decongest pores and refine the skin’s surface. Complementing this enzymatic action, finely-crushed olive pit powder lifts away dead skin cells and debris that can make the skin appear dull. 

Our formula also adds another layer of exfoliation through plant-based PHAs from sugar beet and AHAs from fruits like bilberry, sugar cane, orange, lemon, and sugar maple. These acids work in harmony on a deeper level to renew the skin, encouraging radiance from within.

The outcome is a remarkable reduction in the appearance of pores, wrinkles, and lines. This comprehensive, multi-layered approach makes our Triple Active Exfoliator a unique addition to any skincare routine, marrying effective exfoliation with nourishing elements. 

How Can You Prepare Your Skin for Exfoliation?
