nourishment for our health. Olive leaves have the highest antioxidant concentration of all
parts of the olive tree, thanks to the combined power of flavonoids, phenols and oleuropein.

therefore we must rely on our dietary intake of vitamin C rich foods and drinks.

the skin’s barriers (4). In addition, Vitamin C plays a role in collagen production, a vital
protein that helps with skin structure.
Also known as Vitamin H, Biotin is a B complex vitamin that assists with converting food into
energy. Enzymes rely on Biotin to function, therefore it is so important for energy
production and helps the formation of fatty acids that may contribute to our skin health and
Evidence has shown that CBD may be beneficial for skin health and treating a variety of
skin conditions. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD may help with conditions such
