Natural skincare is becoming increasingly popular as more people seek gentle yet effective solutions for their skin.

But does natural skincare actually work?

The answer is… absolutely!

Which is why here at Everything Olive, we’re dedicated to using scientifically-backed, natural ingredients that offer real benefits.

So let's explore the major active ingredients in our natural, all-Australian made skincare range, and how they can boost not only your skin’s health, but it’s appearance (and your confidence!) too.

But first - what is natural skincare?

Put simply, natural skincare refers to any skincare products made from ingredients found in nature.

Unlike traditional skincare, which may contain synthetic chemicals, natural skincare focuses on plant-based, mineral-based and other naturally derived ingredients.

This often means fewer potential irritants and harsh chemicals - which is especially great news for those with sensitive skin.

But of course, the biggest concern many people have is whether or not natural skincare is effective.

Thankfully, the resounding answer is yes.

Many natural ingredients have been used in skincare for centuries, and are supported by modern science.

Gentle on the skin, they can reduce the risk of negative reactions.

Plus, they’re often more sustainable, making them a better choice for the environment too.


Key natural ingredients in the Everything Olive Range

Here at Everything Olive, we believe that nature holds the key to achieving healthy, radiant skin.

And that's why we’re meticulous when choosing the ingredients for our natural skincare range.

We only select those known for their exceptional - and proven - benefits, ensuring your skin receives the genuine care it deserves.

So let’s take a closer look at our main active ingredients, and explain why each of them is a superstar in its own right.

Extra virgin olive oil

There’s good reason we chose humble olive oil as our hero ingredient – when it comes to skincare, it punches well above its weight!

Prized for centuries thanks to its rich antioxidant content, hypoallergenic and moisturising properties, today, Australian extra virgin olive oil is a staple right across Everything Olive’s natural skincare range.

It not only helps protect the skin from damage, it also moisturises deeply, reduces inflammation and helps prevent premature ageing. With regular use your skin will be softer, smoother and positively radiant.

Hyaluronic acid

Despite its somewhat scientific-sounding name, we can assure you that hyaluronic acid is as natural as it gets!

A serious powerhouse when it comes to hydration, hyaluronic acid actually attracts moisture to your skin. This makes it perfect for reducing the appearance of fine lines and giving your skin a youthful, dewy glow, keeping it vibrant and fresh throughout all day long.

A seriously effective natural alternative to its synthetic rival retinol, bakuchiol (pronounced ba-koo-heel) helps reduce fine lines and improve overall skin tone.

Scientifically proven to offer the same results without the irritation often associated with its chemical counterpart, its job is to make your skin look refreshed and radiant so you can enjoy all the anti-ageing benefits of retinol without the risk of dryness or redness.

Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide is a natural inflammation calmer.

Responsible for improving skin’s texture and controlling oil production, it’s suitable for all skin types - so it’ll help reduce redness and blotchiness while keeping your skin balanced and clear.

Famous for its moisturising and soothing properties, panthenol - aka vitamin B5 - strengthens the skin’s natural barrier, keeping it hydrated and healthy.

It’s also incredible when it comes to helping your skin recover from damage, helping improve its resilience against environmental stressors.

Derived from sugar beets, betaine is an excellent hydrator.

Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it gives your skin the boost it needs to stay smooth and firm - even in harsh weather conditions.


Vitamin E

This powerful antioxidant protects your skin from free radicals and helps with moisture retention.

If it’s smooth, healthy skin you crave, Vitamin E plays an important role by preventing and healing skin damage, whilst protecting it from harmful UV rays and pollution.


Coenzyme Q10

Essential for energising skin cells, coenzyme Q10 is your go-to when you want to give your skin cells a boost.

Allowing your skin to become firmer and more elastic over time, it helps reduce visible signs of ageing and minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The result? A more glowing, youthful look.

Sea buckthorn CO2 extract

Rich in vitamins and minerals, sea buckthorn CO2 extract promotes skin regeneration, reduces inflammation and improves your overall complexion.

Its superpowers are soothing, healing and rejuvenation, making it ideal for damaged or sensitive skin.

Olive squalene

Mimicking the skin’s natural oils, olive squalene is a pro at providing deep hydration to improve your skin’s elasticity, absorbing quickly and penetrating deeply to leave it feeling soft, supple and more resilient than ever.

Naturally anti-inflammatory too, olive squalene is perfect for helping improve all skin types including those with dry, sensitive and reactive skin.

For many, the idea of switching to a natural skincare routine comes with some doubts.

And in a world where big unsubstantiated claims are made on a daily basis, it’s understandable that you might be sceptical about whether natural ingredients truly can deliver a good result.

So it’s important to highlight that there are so many high-quality natural ingredients - like olive oil, hyaluronic acid and bakuchiol - that are actually backed by science too.

What’s more? They often provide the same results, if not better, without relying on the harsh chemicals often found in traditional products, and are often shown to hydrate, protect and rejuvenate your skin just as effectively - making them a smart choice for anyone looking for a gentle yet effective solution for their skin.

So why not give a natural skincare routine a go? You might be pleasantly surprised!
