As we age, our skin deteriorates and its inner and outer layers (dermis and epidermis) grow much thinner. The stress and strains of ageing also affect the skin causing the loss of its elasticity, which soon becomes noticeable as wrinkles. External factors, such as the sun rays can also speed up ageing. The constituent substances of olive oil are antioxidant and moisturising and not only do they take care and nourish the skin but they also act as a shield against ageing.
The Greek olive oil with its 4,000 years history of production is internationally acknowledged for its purity and exceptional taste. More than 80% of the Greek olive oil production is extra virgin, which is at the top of the global ranking quality. This figure establishes Greece as the world’s largest producer of extra virgin olive oil.

Aristotle considered the cultivation of olives as a science and Plato taught under its shade. Hippocrates based more than 60 pharmaceutical uses on the olive (burns, gynecological and heart conditions, wound healing, fever and infection treatment).
The olive oil was the prestigious prize for the winners of the Panathenea Games, which were held in honor of the Goddess Athena and were considered part of the most important feast of ancient Athens. An olive wreath was put on the winner’s head. The "Treasurers of the Acropolis" guarded the oil of the sacred olives (olive molecules originated from the sacred olive tree of the Acropolis) to distribute it at the Panathenea to the athletes to anoint their bodies for beauty and protection. The olive oil was burnt in the sacred lamps of ancient temples and it was considered to be the "sacred flame" of the Olympic Games. The winners of the Games were crowned with olive leaves, a symbol of peace and victory. The symbolism of peace survives until today in the Greek language with the phrase "I offer an olive tree branch".
