Ozonated olive oil is by far the most well-known and popular ozone oil in the world. For many years it was one of the only oils available with ozone and is still considered the gold standard for most people. What makes it so desirable? There are several reasons, and we’ll go over them now.
The right strength for the most users
Olive is considered a medium-strength oil, right in the middle of the Potential Ozonide Index. POI is measured by a formula that takes into account the amount of Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids in the oil. The more fatty acids, the more ozone can be infused. Olive’s POI is 92, making it a great option for nearly any skin type. You can find out more about POI in our ozone strength video.
A wide variety of use
Ozonated olive oil dates back to inventor Nikola Tesla in the early 1900s. Within a few years it was being sold as Glycozone, mentioned in medical texts like Charles Marchland's "The Medical Uses of Hydrozone and Glycozone."
Since then, a great deal of work has been done to show the potential benefits of ozone oils. Olive in particular possesses properties known to be effective for skin lesions, with the ability to reduce the activity of viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and fungi. It may also have some effect on stimulating tissue growth and revitalizing epithelial tissue. Other beneficial results include a decrease in inflammation, increased collagen production, smoother skin, and increased oxygen tension in wounds.
We have heard from customers who use ozonated olive oil to relieve sunburns, ringworm, wrinkles, skin infections, insect bites, hemorrhoids, carbuncles, dermatitis, tinea versicolor, cuts, sore muscles, wrinkles, and more. Its use as part of an oral care routine is rapidly growing in popularity as well.
That's why it has long been known as "The Everything Oil." If you're looking for a versatile option that is usable on all but the most sensitive skin types, ozonated olive oil may be everything you're looking for.
