The Olive, Olea europaea, in the family Oleaceae, is a long-lived, evergreen, sub-tropical tree and has been cultivated for at least 40 centuries for its edible fruit, its valuable oil and for its wood. Unripe olives are green, dark bluish when ripe and are the source of the oil. The leaves are glabrous and grayish-green above and whitish with dense scales below. It is native to the eastern Mediterranean region, where its culture may have been begun as long ago as 3500 BC.

In the popular medicine, topical application of a leaves decoction is recommended to treat wounds and as an antiseptic. Olive Leaf Extract is also used to treat hypertension. The antioxidant effect produced by olive leaf extract is higher due to the synergy of flavonoids, phenols and oleuropein. A synergistic scavenging action has been observed for olive phenolics when combined, as occurs naturally in the olive leaf as well as in the leaf extract.

Olive Leaf Extract is highly recommendable to formulate cosmetic products for skin and hair protection against oxidative processes, cosmetic products with anti-irritant activity and cosmetic products with purifying and antiseptic activity. It can also be used to formulate cosmetic products with relaxing activity such as cosmetics for tired legs. Possible cosmetic effects include tonic, stimulant, astringent and calming with a maximum recommended concentration up to 10% for creams and lotions. Other possible effects are anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antioxidant.
