We are passionate about natural skincare. And we rely on mother nature to create the natural ingredients which best clean and nourish the body. We combine these elements thanks to our laboratories and the Istituto Acidi Grassi in Milan.
Olivella® products are all dermatologically tested in accredited 3rd party labs. Our chemists in the lab strictly adopt ISO standards, to ensure all formulas are pH balanced and natural, by checking every batch is free of contamination.
We perceive marketing as a tool to educate and make our consumer aware. Our product line is the perfect example of how a food industry can use EVERY part of an edible product to make something new and beneficial for the human body.
OLIVELLA® IS EXCLUSIVELY MADE WITH “BY PRODUCTS” DERIVED FROM REFINED OLIVE OIL
This is why we use extra-filtered and recycled water in our products which comes from the same refinery production. This process drastically reduces the use of external natural resources. Further this explains why we manufacture all of our soaps and oils internally so we can control and insure that all ISO Standards are complied. We use partially recycled plastic and glass in order to have the lowest impact on the environment and we make our product’s formula 100% biodegradable.
WHY IS OLIVELLA DIFFERENT?
THE ANSWER IS 100% VIRGIN OLIVE OIL.
OLIVELLA® PRESERVES THE NATURAL ANTI-AGING PROPERTIES AND ANTIOXIDANTS (POLYPHENOLS) IN OLIVE OIL BY RETAINING THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF THE NATURAL NUTRIENTS.
WHY OLIVE OIL IS NOT EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS?
We think of our clients as our best brand ambassadors and that's why we want you to know everything about us. Because when you choose Olivella® rest assured that you are choosing the best. We want you to know exactly what is in our products therefore we disclose all of the ingredients.
If there is even a slight chance that an ingredient isn’t safe, we don’t use it, period.
3RD PARTY EVALUATION
Olivella®’s ingredients are always stringently overviewed and evaluated by an independent material research agency for all health and environmental concerns.
Olivella fragrances are pleasant to your nose, perfect for the planet. A sense of smell is one of the most important, which is why Olivella invests careful attention into creating pleasant, natural fragrances for our products. In addition, we ensure that the development of our scents will not harm clients, animals or the planet. The ingredients for Olivella® fragrances are assessed closely and tested for irritation and allergies. We believe in ensuring that all the natural elements from nature such as lemons, oranges, vanilla, verbena and violets, enrich and enliven our senses. So that’s what we use - essential oils and fragrances naturally extracted from flowers, herbs and plants.

Every ingredient used in an Olivella® product is evaluated by an independent research institute, PETA. As a result of this testing process, we can be completely certain of the cruelty free, the health and environmental safety of all Olivella® products.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 3 million members and supporters. PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry.
We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds, and other "pests" as well as cruelty to domesticated animals. PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns. More info at www.peta.org
WE USE MATERIALS THAT DON’T HARSHLY IMPACT OUR PLANET.
AT OLIVELLA® WE KNOW THAT OUR PRODUCTS COME FROM NATURE AND THAT WE HAVE TO PROTECT AND RESPECT IT AS MUCH AS WE CAN.
THE RESULT OF OUR CONCERN IS THE USE OF RECYCLED AND RECYCLABLE MATERIAL IN EVERY ITEM, IN ORDER TO HAVE THE MINIMUM POSSIBLE IMPACT ON OUR PLANET.
In order to minimize waste and reduce resource consumption, we recycle plastic from other bottles or industrial waste which therefore saves them from being placed in a landfill, PCR – Post Consumer Resin. This type of plastic comes from materials after their use by consumers (for example soda bottles).
Our teams work diligently to reduce the use of non-renewable materials for our entire product line, from bottling to formulations. Proudly we can share that we make our core bottles from 100% recycled plastic. Also the majority of our formulations contain 95-99% renewable ingredients.
OUR PACKING PROCESS
Each bottle, jar and box goes through a thorough process which ensures the top level of sustainability. Our green standards ensure the consideration of carbon emissions, energy efficiency and also use of materials. The Olivella packaging team not only uses recycled materials but also pays close attention to create compact product designs, guaranteeing little waste and the highest level of efficiency.
