Olive leaves boast antioxidant benefits, brought by flavonoids and simple phenols (hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol), which are ideal for anti-aging skincare and sun protection products. One of these flavonoids, oleuropein, reduces inflammation and delivers a skin-soothing effect. Its activity is reinforced by phytosterols, which also maintain the skin's moisture levels thanks to their filmogenic properties. Astringency in olives comes from tannins, which fulfill a sebum-regulating function.
