Is Olive Oil Good for Your Skin?

April 12, 2022

We’re here to settle the debate once and for all: yes, olive oil is great for your skin! It is an incredible moisturizer, and features lots of the “good stuff” that your skin craves.

But, there is a catch – applying olive oil straight onto your face from the bottle in your kitchen cabinet is not ideal. Instead, reach for a medical-grade skincare product that contains just the right concentration of olive oil and that has been clinically proven to be effective.

Here are a few reasons we love using olive oil in our medical-grade formulations:

It’s a Great Source of Monounsaturated Fats

Monounsaturated fats are barrier-boosting healthy fats that help your skin retain moisture. They are especially effective when applied over freshly moisturized skin, and help create an extra layer of protection against moisture loss and dryness throughout the day.

It Contains Antioxidants 

Olive oil is an excellent source of antioxidants like Vitamin E, oleuropein, and squalane that your skin loves. When used in a skincare product, it adds an extra boost of antioxidants to your routine.

It Helps Reduce Visible Signs of Aging

These key nutrients all work together to help reduce visible signs of aging. Olive oil can help reduce the appearance of redness, and can also help prevent skin deterioration. For you, that means healthier, more youthful-looking skin.

So, What Epionce Products Contain Olive Oil? 

Olive oil can be found in many of our formulations! If you’re interested in adding it to your routine, here are a few duos to try:

For dry or sensitive skin, try: Lite Lytic Tx + Renewal Facial Cream

For normal skin, try: Lytic Tx + Renewal Facial Lotion

For combination, oily, or blemish prone skin, try: Lytic Plus Tx + Renewal Lite Facial Lotion
