Nurture Your Skin From the Ground Up: The symbiosis between soil and skin

There’s a lot you might not know about skincare, so get ready because we’re here to unearth a whole new level of beauty brilliance. While it might seem like an unconventional ingredient, soil plays a pivotal role in skincare formulas that truly nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Beyond supporting plant life, soil possesses a wealth of minerals, microbes, and organic matter that directly influence the health and vitality of our skin, shaping everything from complexion to resilience against environmental stressors.

Join us as we dive deep into the earthy realm of soil and discover its profound influence on OLIVE TREE PEOPLE and skin health.

The Benefits of Soil 

One of the key players that makes soil so effective on skin health is its mineral content. Minerals like magnesium, zinc, and silica are essential for maintaining skin elasticity, regulating oil production, and promoting cell regeneration. When absorbed through topical treatments, like our F05 Antioxidant Face Cream for example, or foods grown in healthy soil, like our collection of ingestibles, these minerals work wonders for achieving a clear, radiant complexion.

But it's not just about what soil contains—it's also about what it cultivates. Beneath its surface, soil is filled with a diverse ecosystem of beneficial microbes. These tiny organisms play a crucial role in maintaining the skin's microbiome, the delicate balance of bacteria that supports its barrier function and immune response. By nurturing soil health, we indirectly support the health of our skin microbiota, leading to fewer breakouts, reduced inflammation, and overall improved skin resilience.

Furthermore, soil influences the quality of the plants it nurtures, which, in turn, affects the skincare products derived from them. At OLIVE TREE PEOPLE, our ancient mountain olive trees are grown in nutrient-rich soil, which carries higher levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and phytonutrients—essential for combating free radicals, promoting collagen production, and warding off signs of aging.

The Efficacy of Soil

Unfortunately, not all soil is created equal. Modern agricultural practices, pollution, and erosion have depleted many soils of their nutrients and microbial diversity, posing a threat to our skincare regimen.

To reap the full benefits of soil on skin health, OLIVE TREE PEOPLE practices and supports sustainable farming, we produce beauty products only from nutrient-rich soil, and we encourage everyone to reconnect with their own nature. Whether it’s going outside to hug a tree, or listening to the sounds of our meditating mountain olive trees, we believe it is extremely important for your mental health and skin health to connect daily with nature.

The Symbiosis Between Soil and Skin

The impact of soil on skin health is profound and multifaceted. We at OLIVE TREE PEOPLE are redefining holistic beauty – or as we say: From Tree to Beauty – which means for us to start with the roots. Therefore, we protect overgrown, hundred-year-old mountain olive trees by buying large areas in order to cultivate the land and its trees and have them eco-certified. Fly over our grove!

These mountain olive trees not only provide oxygen for hundreds of thousands of people, they also protect the soil from erosion and make a sustainable contribution to biodiversity. In addition to our world-award-winning bioactive extra virgin arbequina oil, they also provide us with the autochthonous and globally unique beauty molecule Hydroxytyrosol, which perfectly protects human cells and allows trees to live up to 4,000 years.

To date, OLIVE TREE PEOPLE has rescued 30,985 centenarian and wild mountain olive trees, and the number is growing every year. As part of OLIVE TREE PEOPLE, you too can actively contribute.

So, the next time you reach for your skincare routine, remember to thank the earth beneath your feet — it may just hold the secret to unlocking your skin's true potential!
