The Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Ecology Day & Night Cream is grown on a family operated organic olive grove in the Grampians, Victoria.  To ensure maximum quality and preservation of nutrients and antioxidants, the olives are cold pressed immediately after harvest and the resulting olive oil is gravity settled, not filtered.

  • Olive oil is suitable for all skin types.
  • It’s high in Oleic Acid (Omega 9) which is very moisturising, regenerating, softening on the skin.
  • Oleic acid also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps other active components penetrate deep into skin.
  • Olive oil is high in squalene, which helps to regulate oil production and improve cell regeneration.
  • Squalene is critical for vitamin D synthesis in the skin and is found naturally in the oils produced by youthful skin (sebum).
  • The function of sebum is to lubricate, protect and waterproof skin.  A natural anti-microbial, sebum enhances the healthy functioning of skin by helping to moisturise skin and protect it from microbial invasion.
  • Sebum production declines as we get older, reducing moisture in the skin and increasing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and ageing skin.
  • Olive oil is also high in anti-oxidants including vitamin E, polyphenols and phytosterols, which help to neutralise free radicals, preventing skin damage and repairing cell membranes.
