Olive oil is already well-known for its excellent health benefits and often preferred for its anti-oxidative qualities and combatant effect on many lifestyle related diseases. Olyfberg, situated near Robertson in the Western Cape, has now applied their intricate knowledge of this pitted fruit in producing a new olive oil skin range ensuring a more holistic approach to health and beauty. The range has four products, a face cream, soap bar, body butter and kigelia gel.
Rejuvenating Face Cream – R60
This cream is amazing, not only does it leave your face feeling soft and moisturized, it also primes your face for your daily make up routine. Olyfberg combined the soothing qualities of Kigelia with the natural hydration properties of olive oil and avocado and shea butter to create this product ideal for a more sensitive skin. This rejuvenating cream will soothe tired skin back to its natural glow.
Olyfberg Olive & Kigelia Body Butter – R65
This rich and luxurious, soft olive green coloured body butter is handmade from extra virgin olive oil infused with Kigelia extract – made from the Kigelia africana tree. I’m obsessed with most body butters and this one is at the top of my list this month. It smells amazing, leaves your skin extra smooth and it contains no artificial colourants or other chemicals and is paraben free. Its soothing qualities are recommended for most skin conditions and can be used for sunburn, eczema, psoriasis, insect bites, rashes and even mild burn wounds.
Handmade olive soap – R35
Olive oil acts as natural emollient, leaving skin softer and smoother. Combine this property into beauty soap and you will have a product that not only cleanses and nourishes the skin, but also prevents further drying and flaking by locking in natural skin oils. As added benefit, it also acts as anti-oxidant, protecting the skin against ageing, limiting the outbreak of acne and reducing the appearance of unwanted blotching.
Kigelia Gel – R50
Kigelia gel contains pure Kigelia extract and is specially formulated to calm more serious skin afflictions such as eczema and psoriasis. Pop this little guy into your fridge so it’s extra cool when you use it. Use three times daily, to help sooth sunburn and help sun-damaged skin heal faster. This is a natural healant.
