THE ORIGINS AND BENEFITS OF ORGANIC TOSCANO PGI EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Since time immemorial, in Tuscany, once the vintage is over, the long ladders are prepared in order to manually collect (“brucare”) the olives, which are then put down in proper wicker baskets and carried to the oil-press in a few hours’ time.
Here, using exclusively mechanical systems, the good Organic TOSCANO PGI Extra Virgin Olive Oil originates:
* Green colour and fruited taste (aromas of artichoke, fennel, “rucoletta” and green leaf)
* Low acidity
* Rich in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, easily digestible for the human metabolism
* Rich in polyphenols and Vitamin E, that, thanks to their antioxidant action, oppose the cellular and skin ageing
A TRADITION PASSED DOWN SINCE ANCIENT TIMES
The use of olive oil dates back to the beginning of time and it wasn’t only used for nutrition but especially for cosmetic purposes. From the ancient Egyptians to the Greeks, from the Etruscans to the Romans, up to the capable Florentine business-men, the exclusively Mediterranean tradition of the use of olive oil in the cosmetic sector has been passed down until the present day and since then it’s considered a synonym of quality.
THE CONSORTIUM FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE ORIGINAL TUSCAN OIL

THE TUSCAN QUALITY ON YOUR SKIN
Difficult to imagine, even for a moment the Tuscan landscape without our olive trees. The Oil always manages to tell the unique heritage of wisdom, smells and tastes of the most authentic Tuscan tradition. A such healthy tradition that already well before its virtues were scientifically acclaimed, made extensive use of Organic Toscano PGI Extra Virgin Olive Oil in its most characteristic and famous gastronomic specialities, in remedies widely used in popular medicine, and in beauty treatments.
From these ancient traditions and from the selection of the best natural and organic ingredients, first of all the Organic TOSCANO PGI Extra Virgin Olive Oil, originates Prima Spremitura BIO.
