Olive oil: A source of life with a history stretching through the centuries
The history of olive oil begins 7,000 years ago when olive trees were brought to the Mediterranean region by Phoenician traders. In addition, fossilized olive tree leaves that are over 50,000 years old have been found on the islands of Santorini and Nisyros.
The ancient Greeks deeply valued beauty and physical virtue. They mastered the secrets of nature so as to live a better and longer life, and olive oil was a key ingredient in their diet and skin care. Especially after bathing, they would anoint their hair with scented oil, as well as their skin to make it smooth and soft.
Thousands of years later, olive oil is still a superior ingredient used for cosmetic, nutritional, and medicinal purposes.
KOHO cosmetics formulas are based on extra virgin olive oil produced in the heart of Monemvasia, Greece, in vast olive groves. The unique antioxidant properties of extra virgin olive oil paired with multiple vitamins and oleic acids nourish and protect the skin while keeping it soft, moisturizing, and soothing it from irritations. And there is also something magical to it: all these elements work miracles against aging! No wonder why olive oil is considered to be the secret to longevity.
Each and every KOHO skincare line has been formulated to make the most of all the benefits of olive oil, so as to meet the needs of all skin types.
