I believe many skin care ingredients party should have heard of this ingredient - oil olive leaf extract. However, they have not understood more about its excellent effects, so today we will talk about this ingredient in depth analysis.

Origin of the ingredient

As a symbol of peace, stability and abundance, the olive tree has provided food and shelter for humans since the beginning of human history. It is believed to have originated on the Mediterranean coast more than 5,000 years ago and was first brought to the United States in the 15th century. 

There are indications that drinking tea made from olive leaves has been traditionally used for centuries in the Middle East to treat discomforts such as coughs, sore throats, bladder infections and fevers. In addition, olive leaf ointment was used to treat boils, rashes, warts and other skin conditions. 

It was not until the early 18th century that the olive leaf began to attract the attention of the medical establishment. The olive tree is a long-lived tree: it can survive for thousands of years without any care, insecticide or fertilizer, due to the high content of protective molecules in all parts of the plant. 

In the olive leaf, there are hundreds of active molecules that work together like musical instruments in an orchestra, demonstrating an outstanding ability to scavenge free radicals. 

Therefore, like many botanicals, oil olive leaf extract is not a single active ingredient, it is rich in biopolyphenols, flavonoids and other active molecules, the main active ingredients in the leaves of oil olive are oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol.

Recent studies have identified several groups of active molecules in olive leaves.

- Cleaved cyclic enol ether terpene derivatives (olive bitter glucoside and mullein)

- Flavonoids (lignan, apigenin, lignan and geranylin)

- Flavonols (brassinosteroids)

- Flavanones (catechol)

- Substituted phenols (tyrosol, vanillin, vanillic acid, caffeic acid)

- Glycosides (lignan)

- Enzymes (lipase, peroxidase)

- Other molecules such as oleuropein, N-tridecanoic acid, oleanolic acid, malic acid, lactic acid, tartaric acid, cacodylic acid, tannic acid, glucose, sucrose, mannitol and essential oils.

Main effects of ingredients

In view of the diverse composition of olive leaf extract and its wide range of effects, the main effects are described here:

1. anti-inflammatory

Olive leaf extract has anti-inflammatory effect. Can stimulate macrophage activity, on the one hand in the early inflammation to promote the inflammatory response, kill bacteria and phagocytosis, inhibit the release of histamine, reduce the mRNA expression of inflammatory factors TNF-α and IL-1β, with anti-inflammatory effect, on the other hand in the late inflammation to inhibit the inflammatory response, promote cell proliferation, collagen deposition, improve the inflammation caused by red blood, stimulate peeling, inflammatory acne, post-inflammatory pigmentation hyperpigmentation.

2. Antioxidant

Olea europaea leaf extract has antioxidant effect. Olive bitter glucoside can help enhance SOD, GSH-PX, heme oxygenase-1 activity, help enhance the skin's own ability to remove oxygen free radicals. It protects skin cells from UV damage, prevents the breakdown of skin membrane lipids by UV rays, promotes the production of collagen by fibroblasts, reduces the secretion of fibroblast collagenase, and prevents the anti-glycan reaction of cell membranes, thus highly protecting fibroblasts, naturally resisting the destruction of skin caused by oxidation, and moreover from UV damage, effectively maintaining skin suppleness and elasticity, and achieving the effect of skin support and rejuvenation. Hydroxytyrosol is considered to be one of the most powerful antioxidants, with an oxidative radical absorption capacity of 40,000umolTE/g, 10 times higher than green tea and 2 times higher than coenzyme Q10. It has a safe and excellent antioxidant effect and can effectively enhance skin elasticity and moisturization, with wrinkle and anti-aging effects.

3. Anti-bacterial

Oil olive leaf extract is effective in protecting the skin and also has an inhibitory effect on acne-causing bacteria, and can be used as an acne control ingredient.

4. Anti-aging

Hawthorn acid: increase skin elasticity and hardness, treatment of skin elasticity and sagging; get rid of skin blemishes and wrinkles, inhibit melanin, skin whitening; stimulate the synthesis of lipids in keratin-forming cells, skin protection barrier.

Oleanolic acid: has significant anti-aging and antioxidant effects, improves and enhances dermal collagen, increases skin elasticity, improves the appearance of wrinkles and spots, anti-aging.
