There has been big talk recently about ozonated oils. in 2017, natural organic products have never been hotter and there has never been a larger demand. So what is ozonated oil? More epecifically, what is ozonated olive oil and what makes it different than regular extra virgin olive oil. Ozonated olive oil is an effective, natural remedy that serves many health purposes. That is especially true for skin, where ozonated olive oil has become most popular. The leader in ozonated skin care just released a new ozonated olive oil and the product is drawing rave reviews.

Ozonated olive oil is made with superior quality, organic, extra virgin cold pressed olive oil. From there the olive oil is sent through the ozone injection process. First lets cover what "ozone injection" means. Ozone injection is when the oil is put through a process of bubbling ozone (o3) into the liquid for an extended period of time. What this does is that it purifies the oil at a level that standard extra virgin olive oils do not.

Most companies that claim to be "ozone" actually use a corona discharge ozone generator which can lead to contaminated or less pure products. In order to ensure purity, it is necessary that you use a high-quality cold plasma generator. Ozone is a reactive gas which makes it difficult to stabilize. By passing it through the oil, contained within an ozone resistant container, the ozone gas begins to interact and stabilize within the oil. This process begins to turn the liquid into a paste form that can be used for skincare.
