Carolïna Gramm, with her regal look, a product of her lost Aristocratic lineage, was discovered by Gianni Versace on a beach in Italy. The House of Chanel no doubt saw this in her when they casted her as the “Chanel N°5 Chanel Girl,” early in her modeling career. This early career launch also influenced her personal style.
Carolïna grew up in Italy and became an expert in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. She couldn't find any luxury skincare products made with certified olive oil that lived up to her impeccable standards. So she started Extra Virgin Skin to make them for herself, 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 not only make your skin beautiful and healthy but also set higher standards for how we treat our natural world. That is extremely rewarding.
To make skin cream and lotions you need two basic ingredients, water and oil, mixed together 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 amazing qualities.*
