Carolïna grew up in Italy and became an Extra Virgin Olive Oil expert. She couldn't find luxury skincare products made with certified olive oil that lived up to her standards. So she started Extra Virgin Skin to make them for herself and her clients at her Ojai Olive Oil Tasting Room, and for women like her who refuse to risk their planet's health, or their own, for beauty. If she doesn't feel that a product is right on many different levels, we won't launch it.
"I love making beautiful skincare that works. I feel very joyful creating products that make your skin beautiful and healthy and set higher standards for how we treat our natural world. That is extremely rewarding. To make skin cream and lotions, you need two essential ingredients, water, and oil, mixed with an emulsifier. For me, the best possible skincare oil is organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil grown in California.* It is a trusted source with exceptional qualities." Carolïna.
