The Story Behind Our Sandy Oaks Skincare Products
For centuries olive oil has been used for the skin as well as the table. Indeed, the oil was used for the skin centuries before it was used for the table. The Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans used olive oil as a moisturizer, antibacterial agent, and cleanser. Many cultures have used it to moisturize the skin of babies and to massage them to soothe sore muscles.
In keeping with the long tradition of using olive oil for the skin, Sandy Oaks has developed a line of skincare products that not only use extra virgin olive oil, but an innovation in that practice: We infuse extra virgin olive oil with the leaves of the olive tree and use this infusion as the foundation of all of our skincare products. The result is a product loaded with antioxidants, Vitamins K and E from the oil, and from the leaves, twice the antioxidants as green tea and 400% Vitamin C than other sources of Vitamin C. This infusion of antioxidants, Vitamins K, E, and C promote collagen production, elasticity, cellular restoration and inhibit the production of free radicals.
Sandy Oaks skincare products are not only superior for their beneficial and soothing properties, but they are pleasant to use. They do not leave an oily residue and the mild fragrance evokes the aroma of a meadow full of wild flowers. The fragrance is derived from a combination of herbs and oil, each of which provides additional benefits for the skin.
Sandy Oaks Skincare products are paraben-free, sustainably grown in environmentally friendly settings, do not contain chemical preservatives, are never tested on animals, are vegan, and contain only non-GMO herbs. Our products are made at the orchard. This insures that we can maintain the quality that is so essential to the philosophy held at Sandy Oaks, Hecho a mano con amor.
