For centuries, olive oil has been ascribed with healing abilities and used in medicinal ointments. In addition, the lore of olive oil as a beauty aid has also endured the test of time. Cleopatra’s iconic beauty and “glow” has been attributed to her use of olive oil on her hair, face, and body. We create body care crafted with our Certified Organic EVOO that’s both nourishing and all-natural, known to be:
At McEvoy Ranch, we grow and mill our olives in the Tuscan tradition, which calls for an early harvest. The autumn frosts in Tuscany prompt farmers to harvest their fruit earlier than other regions. Early harvest olive oil abounds with polyphenols, a type of antioxidant. These polyphenols are good for the body inside and out: they reduce inflammation, fight free radicals that damage the skin, and provide anti-aging benefits.
Our olive oil also contains naturally occurring vitamin E and squalane - a known ingredient that assists with the hydration of the skin by mimicking the skin's natural sebum. The cosmetic industry has long relied on the benefits of squalane but has unsustainably harvested deep-sea sharks to procure it. Olive oil is a sustainable source of squalane, an essential qualification for all our ingredient choices for ODE. We are Leaping Bunny certified and source all ingredients from trusted ethical green beauty suppliers.
Taking inspiration from the Ranch, the ODE Olive Oil Beauty collection pays homage to Northern California’s diverse botanical landscape. We are proud to be part of a green beauty movement and develop natural formulations that are healthy, hydrating, and sustainably packaged.
