Olive oil is liquid gold! Obtained from olives by pressing whole olives together to extract the oil, it is commonly used in cooking.

But, did you know …

As one of the ‘healthiest’ oils available, olive oil holds enormous health benefits as well as being excellent for one’s skin.

Olive oil has been used for centuries to successfully reduce and relieve everyday ailments (such as stretch marks). Clinical trials have also found that olive oil contains anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-aging properties as it is packed with antioxidants and vitamins (A, D and E). These vitamins hydrate the skin by building the skin’s moisture barrier to prevent loss of moisture.

Further benefits include the reduction of stretch marks and the maintaining of skin tightness (which gets loosened due to expansion during pregnancy). Massaging olive oil into the skin also improves blood circulation, further known to reduce stretch marks to a great extent.

It is for these exact reasons why olive oil is a key ingredient across the Happy Event range of products for more than 50 years!

All Happy Event products are paraben free and contain olive oil of the highest quality – sourced from the very finest olive oil orchards in Spain. Its special formula works to rebuild your skin’s moisture barrier, improving its elasticity and allowing it to expand safely during pregnancy. It leaves your skin deliciously soft, helps to reduce the appearance of stretch marks to a great extent and also works to prevent the formulation of new ones.

Some additional other benefits of olive oil, across a wide range of health areas, include:

  • Rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, some of which are known to reduce inflammation and are possibly even of benefit on genes linked to cancer.
  • Contains large amounts of antioxidants that can reduce your risk of chronic diseases.
  • Strong anti-inflammatory properties – severe inflammation is considered to be a leading cause of diseases such as cancer, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, obesity, amongst other.
