Unlocking the Power of Bioactive Ingredients in Waterless Skincare

Unlocking the Power of Bioactive Ingredients in Waterless Skincare

In the pursuit of radiant and healthy skin, the choices we make regarding skincare ingredients play a pivotal role. You may not know this, but most conventional skincare brands – including ones that claim to be clean, organic, and are often up to $500 per cream – use 70% water and up to 25% refined oils in their emulsions, totaling up to 95% filler.

At OLIVE TREE PEOPLE, our uniqueness stems from our ingredients. Every product we sell is made of 70% Hydroxytyrosol and 25% Bioactive Arbequina Oil – a stark and interesting difference from conventional brands, which we will explain later in this blog post.

Join us as we dive deeper into the differences between bioactive and refined oils and shed light on the exceptional benefits that bioactive ingredients offer for your skin.

Bioactive vs. Refined Oils: Understanding the Contrast

To really grasp the difference between bioactive and refined oils, it's essential to first understand their production processes and composition.

Refined oils undergo extensive processing, involving high heat, chemical solvents, and refining agents. These procedures strip away many of the natural compounds present in the oil, including vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acid. As a result, refined oils often lack the nourishing properties found in their unrefined counterparts.

Before we go on, you may be wondering: Why do so many conventional skincare brands use refined oils if they don't provide any nourishment for your skin? The answer is because refined oils maintain color and a neutral odor, allowing products a longer shelf-life. While it may seem like your cream or serum is still fresh after a year, the truth is it looks nice, but it is essentially doing nothing for your skin. 

On the other hand, bioactive oils are minimally processed and retain a higher concentration of beneficial compounds. Extracted through methods such as cold-pressing or maceration, bioactive oils preserve the integrity of their natural elements, including vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. This ensures that bioactive oils deliver potent skincare benefits, ranging from hydration and nourishment to antioxidant protection and skin regeneration.

The Skin Benefits of Bioactive Ingredients

Now that you understand the key differences between bioactive and refined oils, let's explore why bioactive ingredients prevail when it comes to skincare:

Enhanced Nutrient Content: Bioactive oils are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, which are crucial for maintaining skin health. These nutrients nourish the skin, promote cellular regeneration, and combat oxidative stress, resulting in a radiant and youthful complexion.

Improved Absorption: Unlike refined oils, which may contain residues of refining agents that hinder absorption, bioactive oils are readily absorbed by the skin. Take our F78 Arbequina Cleansing Oil, for example. The precious ingredients of hydroxytyrosol, vitamin E, french lavender, argan and oleuropein penetrate deeply into the skin's layers for the perfect cell protection and greatest overall vitality.

Gentle and Non-Irritating: Bioactive oils are often free from synthetic additives, fragrances, and preservatives, making them suitable for sensitive skin types. Their natural composition minimizes the risk of irritation or allergic reactions, making them an ideal choice for individuals seeking gentle yet effective skincare solutions.

At Olive Tree People, if any fragrance is used, it is only a composition of essential oils. In principle, OLIVEDA avoids all kinds of synthetic fragrances. 

Versatility and Customization: Bioactive oils offer versatility in skincare formulations, allowing for customization based on individual skin concerns and preferences. Whether you're targeting dryness, aging, acne, or inflammation, there's a bioactive oil suited to address your specific needs. 

In our F72 Corrective Cleansing Oil, the unique combination of Bioactive Arbequina Oil, Hydroxytyrosol and French Lavender serves as a silky makeup remover and moisturizing facial cleanser at the same time. It counteracts clogged pores while freeing the skin from excess sebum or residues of sunscreen, for every day. The non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic bioactive oil also cleanses the skin deep into the pores without compromising its natural protective barrier and without leaving a shiny residue. It’s the perfect solution for all skin types.

Sustainable and Environmentally-Friendly: Many bioactive oils are derived from sustainable and eco-friendly sources, promoting ethical practices and environmental conservation.

At OLIVE TREE PEOPLE, we protect overgrown, hundred-year-old mountain olive trees by buying large areas of land, cultivating it, and having the trees eco-certifiedThese 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 extra virgin olive oil, the trees 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. We are considered the most important conservationist in the Arroyomolinos de León region of Spain, and our trees do incredible things every year, as proven in our ecological balance sheet.

By opting for bioactive skincare products, consumers can support responsible sourcing and contribute to a more sustainable beauty industry. As part of OLIVE TREE PEOPLE, you too can actively contribute.
