Olive Oil: The Long-Lasting Moisturizer for Eczema

The use of olive oil as a moisturizer goes all the way back to the Ancient Egyptians over 4,000 years ago. During the time of the Pharaohs, Egyptians used a blend of olive oil and beeswax as a cleanser, moisturizer, and antibacterial agent. Supposedly, olive oil was even a staple of Cleopatra’s skincare routine. 

Olive oil comes from olive trees native to Asia Minor. Today, olive trees are grown around the globe, making olives one of the most extensively grown crops in the world. 

Olive oil is used for cooking, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and moisturizers. We use it as an effective delivery system to help the skin absorb all of the wonderful nutrients in Eczema Care Cream. 

When applied topically, olive oil penetrates deep into the skin and produces long-lasting benefits. It provides a protective barrier and also delivers its own vitamins A and E to repair cells and prevent further cell damage.  

Organic cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil contains the highest level of antioxidants and nutrients. This is the type of olive oil we use to make our Eczema Care Cream.
