Bertolli Olive Oil
Olive oil is actually fruit juice! Olives are stone fruits, like peaches and cherries.
Olive oil is one of the only oils obtained by pressing fruit, rather than seeds.
It takes an entire olive tree to produce 3.5 litres of olive oil.
There are hundreds of different varieties of olives, which make thousands of different kinds of oils, very similar to the abundance of grape varieties and types of wine.
Olive trees can live for up to 800 years and even longer!
Olive oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, in particular oleic acid, which helps keep the cardio circulatory system in good health. Unsaturated fats help maintain the body’s arterial elasticity and positively affect the “good” cholesterol (HDH). Olive oil is also rich in phenolic compounds which act as natural anti-oxidants, not present in any other oil and is also a significant source of Vitamin E.
Olive oil is 77% unsaturated fat and is naturally cholesterol-free.
Olive oil contains no salt.
Olive oil is rich in anti-oxidants that are said to provide many health benefits, including prevention of heart disease and cancer. Anti-oxidants are also said to protect us from free radicals, thus helping to fight the cell aging process.
One serving, 2tsp of Bertolli extra virgin olive oil, provides 12% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin E.
If you hair seems a bit dry and conditioners aren’t cutting it or you just need something a little extra, use olive oil to do a hair treatment.

Olive oil is a great way to remove grease from any surface, including your hands. You can clean up after working on the car without using harsh chemicals.
Exfoliate and moisturize.
Add some salt to your olive oil for a great exfoliant that moisturizes at the same time. This works well on your face as well as other areas of your body.
Bertolli Olive oil quickly removes makeup and moisturizes your skin at the same time. It even works on mascara, though you want to be sure to give your lashes a good rinse before opening your eyes.
Just like olive oil can moisturize your skin, it can moisturize other skin as well, like leather belts or baseball mitts. Simply work the oil into the leather for a softer, shinier, more flexible leather that will last longer.
Whether you have paint in your hair, on the table, or in a paint brush, use olive oil to quickly and safely remove it without harshly scrubbing the area.
For shiny coat and fewer hairballs, add a bit of olive oil to your pets water. You’ll notice a difference almost immediately.
Olive oil makes a great replacement for shaving cream. You might even get a closer shave than you would with soap or shaving cream and your skin gets moisturized at the same time.
