You can taste the difference in Pompeian olive oil, but did you know that nature’s most authentic
superfood offers real health benefits, and can even be a key ingredient in your wellness routine?
We wholeheartedly believe that your products should be as healthy as the rest of your lifestyle.
The oldest known record of olive oil's existence was found on Crete, inscribed on earthenware tables that date back to 2500 B.C., during the reign of King Minos. Over the years, we’ve come to learn more about the genuine, long-lasting health benefits of olive oil.
A RICH AND ROBUST HISTORY.
Thousands of years before Pompeian brought olive oil to American tables, olives played a vital role in Mediterranean lives, both for its dietary benefits and for its positive effects on the skin.
A MEDITERRANEAN STAPLE.
Because olive trees were so revered in the Mediterranean culture, the mighty olive branch became a long-lasting symbol of peace, a symbol that endures to this day.
SYMBOL OF PEACE.
While an olive tree’s greatest period of fruit-bearing productivity is when the tree is between 35 and 150 years old, these ancient trees have provided the health benefits of olives to nearly 40 generations.
TIMING IS EVERYTHING.
When used as part of a healthful lifestyle, such as following the Mediterranean Diet, Keto or even Whole 30, olive oil can help protect against heart disease and lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
EVOO contains polyphenols, antioxidants that can fight inflammation, a leading cause of cancer, and may also prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
As nature’s first skin moisturizer, EVOO penetrates the skin deeply. Today we know this works because of the presence of squalene; a natural hydrocarbon compound. And since EVOO contains anti-inflammatory properties, it can reduce oxidative stress, which keeps skin feeling—and looking—young and healthy, even accelerating the healing process of stretch marks! What's more, the squalene in olive oil also helps soften the skin, aiding in restoring healthy-looking suppleness and flexibility. And the antioxidants in EVOO also protect against and repair the damaging effects of the sun. So long sunburn!
EVOO: THE ULTIMATE SKIN SOLUTION.
Try adding EVOO to your lotion for extra moisture. Plus, since EVOO absorbs deeply into skin and provides a cleansing effect, you can use it as a natural makeup remover.
Give your hair a little TLC by mixing EVOO with your favorite essential oils for an at home deep conditioning treatment.
