Green Tailors was launched in 2019 by three friends - Fernando, Francisco and Nuno - with a common goal. From our headquarters in Portugal, we started slowly but stubbornly committed to having an active voice in raising awareness and shaping the discussion around the negative impacts of climate change. We were appalled by what was going on in the world. How this affected the environment and resources, and the negative impact that It had on our people, on our communities. More than talking about the issue, we had the urge to have a direct contribution in shaping a more conscious, aware, healthy and empathic world. A place where humans and nature can coexist in a balanced way. Where people can have a more grounded and healthy lifestyle. We had a strong call to act. And Green Tailors came to life.

Green Tailors is more than a sustainable personal products brand. It is a movement of mindful human beings that aim to empower people to save our planet by introducing simple minor changes to everyday habits. We aim to be part of the solution to the challenges our planet currently faces. How? By raising awareness and by offering sustainable, high quality, affordable, everyday alternatives to "mainstream" personal care products. We offer true, honest and green alternatives that are accessible to everyone. Solutions that are available anytime and anywhere. Delivered to your doorstep. We are the "go-to" brand where people and businesses can find every day sustainable essentials without effort. We are part of a growing collective of people that know that we don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions doing it imperfectly.

Olive oil, or liquid gold, has proven to be a great addition to one’s diet, not only by taste but because of its health benefits. What about its use in skincare?

 

Olive oil does not need an introduction. It is widely known as the liquid goal, praised by its antioxidant qualities and properties, by its taste and by being a healthy fat that integrates the just-as-healthy Mediterranean diet.

However, you may not know thatthe origins ofOlive Oil date back to the year 6000 BC, to the region formerly known as Galilee! Yes, 8 thousand years ago, humans had already discovered that pressing olives would produce a delicious oil,olive oil.

The techniques refined andolive oil was passed from generation to generation, from culture to culture. The Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East were then the hotspots forolive oil, but it quickly spread to other civilizations, like Ancient Egypt. The Roman and Greek Empires were responsible for further spreadingolive oil to all of Europe.

Since then,olive oil has a strong route in Southern European history and culture. And you can easily verify that by eating a traditional Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, or Italian dish. Furthermore,olive oil and olive trees are and will always be connected to the Greek mythology – Athena gifted an olive tree to the city of Athens – and is universally had as a symbol of peace between notions –extend an olive branch, does that ring a bell?

 

Where our Olive Oil is sourced

Olive oil is a big part of our soap bars and shampoo bars, and as such, we look for only the best. Our extra virginolive oil is sourced in the beautiful Portuguese southern plains, from local artisan producers. We use only extra-virginolive oil which is derived by cold mechanical extraction without the use of any solvents or refining methods.

 

Cosmetic and skincare: the benefits ofolive oil

Thehealth benefits of includingolive oil in one’s diet are well known. But there are also many benefits of usingolive oil in skincare. Diverse studies have tested and investigated the action ofolive oil inskin protection. And, sure enough, many studies show thatolive oil – specifically phenolic compounds in it – display antioxidant andanti-inflammatory properties, as well as antibacterial and antimicrobial and that it has a lot of potential in promoting wound healing as well asanti-carcinogenic properties.

Although not many studies have focused on this aspect, olive oil is also very moisturising and hydrating. As a beauty secret passed on from mothers to daughters, it is said that applying olive oil in your hair can help soften and hydrate it. For this reason, along with the antibacterial properties, olive oil is present on a range of skin and hair care products. Examples are our zero-waste Soap and Shampoo Bars.
