I believe that many people who are keen on skincare ingredients should have heard of this ingredient - olive leaf extract.
The olive tree is a very special tree that can survive for a long time without any care, insecticide, or fertilization, because of the high content of protective molecules in all parts of the tree. Like many plants, the active ingredients of olive leaf extract are not single, it is rich in biopolyphenols, flavonoids and other active molecules, the main active components in olive leaf extract are oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol.
The main effects of olive leaf extract:
Olive leaf extract has anti-inflammatory properties. It can stimulate the activity of macrophages, promote the inflammatory response in the early stage of inflammation, and kill bacteria and phagocytose.
Olive Leaf Extract - Oleuropein 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.
And another ingredient, hydroxytyrosol, is considered to be one of the most powerful antioxidants, has a potent antioxidant effect, can effectively enhance skin elasticity, and has a good anti-aging effect.
