Olive natural skincare officially launches in Australia, with its roots planted on a proud family owned olive estate in the lush Bombay Hills of New Zealand. The natural active and botanical ingredients harness centuries of Mediterranean history combined with modern science to help Australians and New Zealanders alike receive the best in beauty treatment and skincare remedies.
It is the first comprehensive natural skincare range from New Zealand available in Australia that recognises the potential of olive oil in curing common skin problems. The range features products for the face, hair and body, which are all gentle to the user and the environment. The signature ingredients, extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf extract are both produced on the
Simunovich Estate and are naturally loaded with powerful antioxidants and vitamins, delivering moisture and firmness while protecting against the harmful effects of external elements such as sun and water. It is high in anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, while aesthetically improving the elasticity of the skin.
