GOING GREEN SINCE 1945
Olivella was created to help clients realize their most healthy and beautiful selves. The company is innovative in every aspect, from production to formulation, as it was created to optimize the olive oil production process.
The CEO Giorgiomaria Del Papa launched the beauty line while working at his family's company, which is one of the largest olive oil refineries in Europe.
He determined that top brands in the cosmetic industry were buying olive oil by-products from his family, such as Fatty Acids and Oleins, but using only a small fraction of the olive oil-derived ingredients in their products. Therefore he decided to invest in a specialized team to create products generated directly from the olive oil refining process. Olivella changes the food production process of olive oil in a way that is extremely ingenious and creates products that use large amounts of exceptional active ingredients at reasonable prices.
Sustainability should not be a luxury. Olivella agrees and in this way became the pioneer of the Mediterranean Diet for Your Skin as well as the first skincare line produced directly from food experts.
After a lengthy period of consideration and research, Giorgiomaria determined that other beneficial uses for olive oil could create a line of head to toe products. Then he and his team decided to start Olivella, an incredible way to share this “green gold” (Olive Oil) through the skin. Olivella represents the Mediterranean Diet for the Skin. By taking a look back in history, Olivella rediscovers what the Greeks, Romans and other cultures knew all along, olive oil is ideal for healthy skincare.
