Grecian Oil will hit numerous platforms including the celebrity circuit. Academy Award® Winning Actress, Olympia Dukakis tried Grecian Oil and here’s what she had to say about it: “I Love It!”
Made with premium Grecian extra virgin olive oil that is minimally processed for maximum benefits. Grecian Oil represents pure, natural and high quality products stemming from old traditions known for centuries with the Greeks making the skin smooth and radiant, which is taking women’s beauty and body care to another level. It is made with premium Grecian extra virgin olive oil that is minimally processed for maximum benefits. Extra virgin olive oil is made from the first pressing of olives to achieve the maximum levels of beneficial polyphenol antioxidants.
The olives used when creating Grecian Oil products are carefully selected and hand picked. They are then cleaned with pure water before being kneaded and cold pressed. Oil is extracted from hand-selected olives through the pressure. The basic properties and benefits of the premium olives are retained, resulting in a product that is pure and natural.
Olive oil has been regarded for centuries as beautifying oil. Ancient Greek and Roman civilizations considered it a gift from the gods due to its amazing results achieving and maintaining beautiful, radiant skin. The health benefits of consuming olive oil are substantial. History indicates that the actual initial use of olive oil was for the body. Ancient Greeks regarded olive oil as their beauty oil and bathing in the oil was common. The Greek physician Hippocrates, known as the Father of Medicine, referred to olive oil as the “the Great Therapeutic”.
Olives provide beneficial antioxidants, including vitamins B, A, and E, to repair and renew skin. Vitamin A derivatives are highly regarded as an anti-ager because they exfoliate, increase cell turnover and promote collagen growth. Antioxidants stimulate cells to achieve and maintain softer, smoother, more radiant skin. Squalene, a component of olive oil regarded as an excellent emollient and antioxidant makes Grecian Oil a natural age-defier.
Grecian Oil is beneficial and appropriate for use on all skin types and it is an effective moisturizer. Overall skin care is achieved with daily application and massaging into skin. Dry, rough or cracked skin areas will benefit from more generous and frequent applications. These products have been dermatologically tested and are hypoallergenic making it suitable for all skin types. Using Grecian Oil daily helps maintain elasticity for a radiant appearance, while softening, moisturizing and rejuvenating your skin.
Grecian Oil has already made it's way to celebrity events including product placement in the VIP Gift Bags at the December 12, 2011 fundraising event for Three Candles (working title) - a documentary production by Orama Pictures narrated by Olympia Dukakis.
