GUARDIAN : Olive Skincare Series

It has been ages since I stepped into Guardian stores. I spent some time browsing the products available in Guardian today and came across its in-house Olive Skincare Series, made in Korea.

Recently, there was much interest about olive skincare products, especially after Watsons has brought in DHC. Because of its olive content, which caught my attention, on its highly raved DHC cleansing oil and also its Olive virgin oil.

Back to topic;
I am keen on the products and tried googling for more info, which resulted to zero info or reviews. Its a pity! Don't you agree?

***ALERT! Any readers who have used them, would you kindly pls share some reviews about it?***

More about Olive Skincare

Externally, olive oil is an excellent emollient that smoothes and softens the skin. It is non-greasy and penetrates the skin without clogging pores. It provides relief for dry and sensitive skin and helps alleviate itching from dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis.

As we age skin becomes dryer and loses elasticity. Olive oil helps skin stay supple and elastic. It is also an excellent and chemical-free makeup remover, especially for the delicate skin around the eyes. Olive oil can also help minimize stretch marks that form from losing or gaining weight.

Olive oil contains three substances, squalene, squalane, and hydroxytyrosol that are extremely beneficial to skin. Squalene and squalane protect the oils naturally present on skin from oxidizing and potentially causing damage to skin cells. Squalene is present in the oils produced by the sebum glands of the skin.
Hydroxytyrosol is one of the highest-level antioxidants known today and is found only in olive oil. It protects the proteins in skin from being damaged. Studies have shown that olive oil, when applied after sun exposure, reduces the chance of certain skin cancers from developing. Olive oil also has some anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties due to the presence of hydroxytyrosols and may be beneficial for sunburn or other minor burns.


Now that you have mentioned, i am curious to check them out this weekend.
