What Hydroxytyrosol Is:
Hydroxytyrosol is an antioxidative natural product found in olives. It is a phytochemical belonging to the family of polyphenols. Olive oil application has a rich and extensive history in the Western hemisphere. A popular form of olive oil application is the Mediterranean diet. This diet was ranked the number one diet by the U.S. News and World Report. It is partially so beneficial because of the hydroxytyrosol content found in the olives. Application of this antioxidant was approved by both the USA and the European Union. The European Commission Database for Cosmetic Substances and Ingredients concluded that use of hydroxytyrosol is safe under the proposed uses and use levels.
Benefits of Hydroxytyrosol:
- Hydroxytyrosol is currently the most powerful natural antioxidant ingredient. Studies show that hydroxystyrosol’s antioxidant capacity is 2 times greater than resveratrol and 20 times greater than vitamin C.
- Hydroxytyrosol protects skin from UV radiation. Hydroxytyrosol prevents UV radiation damage that may cause melanoma and other skin cancers. This is because hydroxytyrosol reduces the breakdown of DNA strands caused by UVB radiation.

Hydroxytyrosol also restores skin damage and allows for the regeneration of new skin.
