Who doesn’t love Olive Oil?!
At Olivella, we love olive oil so much that we make all our products with our very own 100% Virgin Olive Oil. And the bath and body benefits are almost endless.
But what about innovative ways of incorporating olive oil into our beauty routine?
Our staff came up with the following 4 new ways to use olive oil. Check them out and comment below if you have other new uses to share with us 😊
1. Olive Oil as a pre-shampoo treatment
Yes, you read that right; using olive oil before you apply shampoo can be beneficial and won’t make your hair greasy. It’s an old Egyptian technique, slightly warm up your olive oil on the stove for few brief minutes and apply generous to the ends of your hair and massage into your scalp. Leave it in for about 10-20 minutes and cover with a shower cap. Then simply shampoo. By applying olive oil before shampoo, it nourishes and strengthens the hair particles. If applying straight olive oil to your hair is too much work, use Olivella’s Shampoo to get the strength your hair needs without the mess of olive oil.
2. Olive Oil can be a great makeup remover
I know what you are thinking, wouldn’t applying olive oil to my face clog my pores and make them even worse? In reality, olive oil grabs onto other oil-based products, making it a good cleanser before using your face wash and warm water. Don’t believe us that olive oil works well for removing makeup?

3. Olive Oil is a good DIY eczema remedy
Aside from eating, one of the most popular uses of olive oil is as an intense moisturizer. Olive Oil is perfect for sensitive, dry skin and for applying all over the body. Since olive oil is all-natural, it is ideal for those with eczema and other skin conditions to use. Use Olivella’s Body Lotion to moisturize and hydrate dry skin for your entire body.
4. Olive Oil Can be used for shaving
Running out of shaving cream and don’t have time to run to the store? Use Olive Oil! Lather your legs or your faces gentlemen 😊with olive oil before you start shaving. By doing so, you’ll avoid razor burns and bumps with this natural product, which is full of moisturizing benefits. Don’t believe us?
