Olive leaf extract is a component that people who often have inflammatory and sensitive skin should be familiar with because it has a good anti-inflammatory repair effect.
Similar to other plant extracts, the olive leaf extract is not a single component, which contains various compounds such as oleuropein, luteolin, caffeic acid, apigenin, quercetin, and rutin.

Benefits of olive leaf extract:
Olive oil leaf extract can stimulate macrophage activity. On the one hand, it promotes the inflammatory response in the early stage of inflammation, kills bacteria and phagocytoses, and on the other hand, it inhibits the inflammatory response in the late stage of inflammation, promotes cell proliferation and collagen deposition, thereby improving redness, acne, and post-inflammatory pigmentation caused by inflammation.
Olive leaf extract can help enhance the activity of SOD, GSH-PX, and heme oxygenase-1, and help improve the skin's own ability to scavenge oxygen free radicals.
