Olive Oil Benefits for your skin from past to today.
We produce olive oil from olives. This type is considered one of the healthiest oils in the world. It has always been one of the most essential vegetable oils. One can find many different levels of quality, with the highest quality being the very famous “Extra Virgin Olive Oil made by cold pressing.
In this way, the oil is produced at a temperature not exceeding 35 degrees Celsius. Hot pressing produces more olive oil, but the heat heats the oil and damages its quality. This is also the difference between the soaps made by using the cold method or the hot method.
In ancient times, people used olive oil as a basic food product in the Mediterranean kitchen, and even in cosmetics in order to take care of the skin and hair.

It is also beneficial against aging and cancer. It was also found that consumption of olive oil in a significant amount alongside vegetables and legumes protects against sun damage.
