Did you know that the European Union produces more than 2.5 million tons of waste every year?
An Italian natural skin care brand has decided to invest in reducing the waste and giving it back to the earth.
Olivella uses a particular process to produce its Olive Oil Soap Flakes (it is the only olive oil soap flakes producer in Italy), the production process is linked directly to an olive oil refining company, this allows the company to reduce its water waste (rich in antioxidants) while Olivella creates high quality skin care products.
The whole industrial process is covered by a patent (intellectual property right for a technical invention), but the idea is very simple: the olive oil production and refining process will get to absolute 0 waste the more bar soaps Olivella sells.
Easy right? But there is so much more to say about Olivella.
Everything from packaging to ingredients selection is thought and researched to create products that are safe for your skin and our planet.
One thing is using sustainable packaging and lowering the CO2 emissions, but Olivella’s sustainable process starts from within. The brand understands the importance of transparency so the list of their ingredients is available on their website alongside their benefits for the skin.
The main ingredient of Olivella’s products is 100% virgin olive oil, and they are investing directly in this noble oil.
Olivella is one of the major investors in the project “Terre Del Papa“, the largest organic olive grove in Italy – planting 500 000 trees, lowering CO2 emissions and committing to a sustainable way of doing agriculture. Find out more about the project here: terredelpapa.com
