cosmetic properties of the raw materials
Extra virgin olive oil is one of the main foods of the Mediterranean diet, and is synonymous the world over
with health and well-being. It is a real treasure of our tradition, especially when this precious liquid comes
from such pristine land. Its cosmetic properties were already well known among the ancient peoples.
Egyptians used it to soften their skin and polish their hair. The Greeks, who considered the olive tree a
sacred tree, used its oil for massages, to toughen and warm up muscles. The Etruscans used it as a medicine
and an ointment.
Since ancient times, extra virgin olive oil has not only been making us feel good – it has also been making us
more beautiful. Today, the Isola Pura line continues this tradition.
