OLEOVA is natural premium egg (Ovum) oil extracted from chicken eggs using modern technology. OLEOVA contains a mixture of triglycerides, cholesterol, phospholipids, biotin, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidant xanthophylls like Lutein and Zeaxanthin. It is widely used in skincare and haircare applications.
Recommended dosage: 8-10%
OLEOVA influences the production and sequestering of free radicals or reactive oxygen species (ROS). In a scientific study done on human skin cells, it was found that after 24 hrs, Egg Oil-treated cells produced less ROS. OLEOVA increases the production of catalase which acts as a scavenger of free radicals. OLEOVA also stimulates breathing of cells and re-epithelization. In an experiment, skin cells were grown to confluence and a rim was left free of cells. On incubating with OLEOVA for two days, this previously cell-free area was covered by growing cells and speeding up of cell growth was observed. Thus, OLEOVA is a potent anti ageing active.
Recommended dosage: 10%
Since OLEOVA has natural anti-microbial properties due to the presence of immunoglobulins, OLEOVA makes an effective anti-acne active ingredient.
Recommended dosage: 15%
OLEOVA speeds up the process of cell growth and stimulates re-epithelization due to the presence of Omega-3 fats & biotin.
Cholesterol is an essential membrane lipid. It is naturally found in the human skin. It acts as a natural protection against outside influences such as dehydration and also regulates the transdermal transport of molecules.
Cholesterol maintains stability and structural integrity of liposomes.
Cholesterol acts as a humectant, permeation enhancer and conditioning agent.
