Our Story


In 2000, our family imported a variety of olive trees from Umbria. We propagated and planted the 'Mother Trees'  in the rich soil of the Australian Riverina and today have five different species of olives, with 110,000 trees at our farm in Hillston, Central New South Wales.

Our farm is still family owned and operated and we  produce Extra Virgin Olive Oil of such exceptional quality, we even export back to Italy. 

In 2011,we established links with a local soap manufacturer to produce hard bar olive oil soap using our  oil.  From this beginning we formed the Olive Oil Skincare Company in 2012.

We are passionate about the health benefits of Extra Virgin Oil for the body - both inside and out -  and now produce a full range of skincare, hair care,  beauty and lifestyle products, all using our 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil as a base.

Olive oil has a proven and recorded legacy of being used for skin and hair care over the centuries - even dating back to the days of Cleopatra.  

We are constantly evolving our range and have found our journey has taken us “back to the future” - blending timeless rituals such as the traditional cold-pressed method of making soap, with modern knowledge and cross-cultural collaboration. 

Our Aboriginal Series is a fusion of two traditional cultural practices: the ancient Mediterranean tradition of applying olive oil to the skin and hair, with the wisdom of Aboriginal Australians, who over millennia have harnessed native flora to treat skin ailments.

 

From our original handmade, hard bar soap, our range of products has grown to encompass balms, body oils, body washes, a number of unscented and naturally scented soaps.  We also produce shampoo and conditioner, an aboriginal range, a gentle baby range and most recently have developed a complete skincare range including a serum, cleanser, toner, moisturiser and hand cream.

Our products are exported around the world, including to the US, Japan, China, Singapore and Taiwan. 

We are proud to be 100% Australian owned, and remain committed to making our all-natural, 100% Australian products with ethically sound practices.
