High-quality extra virgin olive oil producer Bellucci Premium responds to an article from Lifehacker that explains the benefits of shaving with olive oil in place of traditional shaving cream.
In an article published by Lifehacker on December 26th titled “Shave with Olive Oil to Save Money and Get Smoother Skin,” the benefits of shaving with olive oil instead of traditional shaving cream are discussed, including both cost and health benefits. The article suggests rubbing in only a few drops of olive oil into the skin as shaving preparation. “You’re paying far less for a huge bottle of olive oil than if you were to buy the little shaving oil bottles which can cost between $5 and $10 each,” according to the article. Aside from the cost benefits, shaving with olive oil also provides many health and beauty benefits.
The article sites Jeanne Calment, the oldest person ever documented, and her claim that rubbing olive oil into her skin was what contributed to her longevity and relatively youthful appearance. Olive oil shaves can aid in avoiding skin irritation from razors and is less oily than other mineral oils.
Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Bellucci Premium, a high-quality Tuscan olive oil producer, says, “Olive oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, oleic acid, and vitamin E, all antioxidants that nourish and hydrate the skin without making it greasy. Using olive oil in place of shaving cream can even help clear up acne and help in diminishing the appearances of scars. For an even more natural approach to shaving, opt for organic olive oil.”
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
