I use olive oil in my beauty regimen almost daily – it’s works great as a makeup remover and base for DIY scrubs and moisturizers. Since I’m already a big fan of EVOO, I was super stoked to try some bath goodies from Olivita, a company that is socially conscious, vegan, and cruelty-free.
Olivita makes hand-crafted skin and haircare products using EVOO from evergreen olive trees in the Mediterranean and other yummy, natural ingredients. Here are two of my fave Olivita bath goodies:
Virgin Olive Oil Beauty Bar ($6.99): This gentle and nourishing bar of soap contains olive oil, antioxidant-rich vitamin E, Beta Carotene, Vitamin A and Squalane. It’s perfect fo’ ladies and dudes alike – it’s unisexy. And what’s über cool is that their soaps are all handcrafted by women who are given the opportunity to pursue their education in evening schools.
Virgin Olive Oil Pure Aegean Bath & Body Gel ($15.99): This nurturing body wash is designed to improve your skin’s natural oil balance. Boy oh boy, does this leave my skin feeling insanely soft! It also has a gorgeous scent – in fact, it’s infused with “essence of pure Aegean” revitalizing natural essential oils “that will take you to a bright Aegean morning in the Mediterranean.” Um, yes please! Until I get my vegan boo-tay to the Mediterranean, this will have to do.
Do you have any favorite olive oil-based beauty products?
