The extra virgin olive oil must be protected from light because it easily alters its colour and taste. For this reason it should be stored in opaque containers and dark, cool places, away from aromatic contamination.

The best extra virgin olive oil is the one produced with olives harvested at the beginning of maturation because they are rich in antioxidant properties. Do you know that to produce 1 kg of oil you need about 5 kg of olives?

The extra virgin olive oil keeps you young because it slows down brain aging, included in many cosmetic formulas for its properties. We can therefore find it in: moisturizing creams for hands, face and body, bath and massage oils, lip balms and body cleansing products.
