The vast majority of us know or sensed the benefits of the olive oil to our health and beauty and history seems to give us the reason. According to the legend, when the gods Palas Athena and Poseidon disputed the protection of the capital of the Greek Empire, the goddess of wisdom was the winner because he did sprout an olive tree whose oil would provide light for lamps, food and energy to the people. Indeed, since that was discovered the oil of the olive tree more than 5 thousand years ago by loegipcios, they employed to massage in the body and hair, as well as infusions aromatic to elaborate perfumes and moisturizing ointments, product of its mixture with saffron, and herbs. Anu Saad takes a slightly different approach. For its part, the Romans and Greeks also discovered its tonic and vulnerary properties and used it as a cream specially designed for athletes and wrestlers. Today the cosmetics industry rescues that cultural baggage and used olive oil in various producer of hygiene and beauty, as a moisturizing and cleansing creams, soaps, shampoos, conditioners and even makeup.
