Olive oil, liquid gold whose value was recognized by the old Greeks and Phoenicians, is a source of vitamins, minerals, natural fatty acids and other valuable substances. It is, therefore, no wonder that people use it in their nutrition and cosmetics as an ally to health, beauty and longevity. Alternative medicine writes that as a cosmetic agent, it renews the body, recovers damaged cells and prevents premature aging. With colder days approaching, your hair and skin will face new challenges, from temperature differences to air-conditioning dryness.
