Born in Asia minor, it is growing in the Mediterranean area since more than 20 000 years and can live more than 1000 years, thanks to shoots and a taking root with a big ramification. It grows very slowly and likes stoned soils better. It can be found in many myths and legends in Ancient Greece, it has now become the symbol of peace and immortality all over the world, but also the symbol of success in Japan. As a useful plant, its oil and its wood are very much appreciated for several domestic uses.
Because skin needs dense and regenerated tissues, it is necessary to maintain their «making» at a sufficient level. To get a skin firmer, more elastic, more resistant.
Contributes to densify the dermis. Helps to improve or restore the dermis functions, skin resistance.
Increases epidermis cell regeneration and reinforces the protective skin barrier.
Restores higher levels of the synthesis of fiber and glycoproteins in the extra cellular matrix.
Contributes to restore the original suppleness of skin.

All Fiber Booster Olive tree acts on the formation of tissues that changes with ageing: this change means a skin with sagged and thinner. Indeed, natural skin ageing is translated by a slowing down of creation of the very material of skin, that happens especially because cells slow down their activities. Then, at the dermis level, the active plant cells will stimulate the synthesis of fibers in the extra cellular matrix: collagens, elastin and proteoglycans. In the same time, they help to balance regeneration of epidermis in terms of production of keratinocyts and specification of cells, a process that decreases with ageing. And to complete its anti-ageing effect, it protects epidermis skin cells against free radicals made both through skin biochemical reactions and environment (especially UVB).
Thanks to those actions, the two skin layers can be more densified and globally balanced.
