Bellucci Premium Comments on the Growing Popularity of Olive Oil as a Natural, Protective Moisturizer and Massage Aid

Extra virgin olive oil producer Bellucci Premium responds to an article that expresses how using olive oil as an alternative in massage oil can help rejuvenate skin cells and protect against sun damage

Bohemia, NY / / Bellucci Premium, a high quality extra virgin olive oil producer, comments on an article promoting the use of extra virgin olive oil, such as Tuscan olive oil, in massage practices in order to boost skin cell regeneration.

An article published by Olive Oil Times on February 20th, titled "Gold Medal Massage", discusses the numerous health benefits that olive oil can provide when substituted with massage oils. Previously, olive oil was not commonly considered for massage oil due to the lack of scent and its association with cooking. With more chemicals being added to current massage oils, spa and therapy specialist Jean Shea expresses how "many people have growing problems with allergies and are seeking natural alternatives that have no added chemicals," and "customers in general are calling for natural substances."

In order to make olive oil more appealing for massage practices, many spas are adding chemical free essential oils for extra health benefits. Combinations are tailored to individual preferences such as if one wanted "to energize…add drops of lemon and lime essential oils; to calm geranium and lavender; to cleanse peppermint and patchouli and for stress ylangylang and lemon grass."

Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Bellucci Premium, says, "Extra virgin olive oil, an upcoming trend in massage and skin care, is rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, phytosterols, and avenasterol that help to repair cell membranes and protect against further sun damage. Olive oil also contains chlorophyll, which diminishes signs of ageing and aids in skin healing and regeneration. It is an excellent addition to any beauty regime."
