Our commitment to the most nutrient abundant products is the hallmark of our business. It is this value that drove our choice to provide a custom-made skin-care line, Ah love All Over. Extra-virgin olive oil is one of nature's greatest miracles and a perfect beauty aid. It is a nutrient rich, superb hypoallergenic moisturizer and contains powerful antioxidants including vitamins A and E that repair and renew skin that is dry or damaged from environmental hazards such as air pollution, overexposure to sun, and nutrient deficient foods. These antioxidants deeply nourish skin cells to repair and prevent damage and return skin to a smoother, firmer, healthier state.
Our products are rich with premium fresh extra-virgin olive oil. Most skin care lines that boast olive oil use virgin or second pressed oil, which does not provide the level of nutrients that extra-virgin does. The texture of extra-virgin (fresh and first extraction) is slightly thicker and more dense adding a creamy consistency to our creams and oils.
Because extra-virgin olive oil is a natural unprocessed harvest, it has a shelf-life, therefore, we work directly with a producer to make our products only when we order them ensuring a fresh product for you that is good for nine-twelve months from the time of your purchase. We only order what we know we can sell in a short amount of time. These products do not contain shelf-stabilizers or preservatives, many of which are suspected carcinogens. In addition, there are no thickeners. Many commercial skin-care lotions and creams used gluten-based thickeners.
Our skin care line is Gluten-free; non-GMO; chemical and additive free.
