Unsaponifiable Fraction of Olive Oil

The Unsaponifiable fraction of olive oil  is a part of virgin olive oil (about 2%) that does not turn into soap as it is chemically composed of fatty molecules that do not react with a basic substance.

It is a mix of chemical molecules such as sterols (beta-sitosterol, avenasterol, campesterol, stigmasterol), waxes, squalene which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and it hydrates the skin very well.
