Olverum Firming Body Oil

A ground-breaking addition to the OLVERUM range, OLVERUM Firming Body Oil is an intensive body sculpting treatment oil, exactingly formulated to improve skin’s elasticity making it appear tighter and more toned.

Applying OLVERUM’s nine decades of expertise with essential oils, we have created a unique and efficacious formulation of active botanical oils and extracts which have been shown to tone skin, enhance collagen levels, and help protect against future loss of elasticity.  

Massaged well into target areas, specialised contouring botanicals Grapefruit and Black Pepper, which are known to stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, rapidly provide a more sculpted appearance. Meanwhile, gently exfoliating Papaya Enzyme removes dull, dry areas to reveal smoothed, dewy skin for instant toning benefits.

OLVERUM Firming Body Oil is designed to slow down the loss of firmness caused by the aging process, and the body’s gradual decline in its production. Paracress Extract, proven to slow collagen degradation, works synergistically with collagen-boosting Alaria Esculenta extract for amplified effects in maintaining the skin’s natural plumpness. Finally, an antioxidant-abundant combination of Clary Sage, Thyme, Rosemary, and Patchouli oils prevents the formation of free radicals.

Suitable for all skin types, its non-greasy formula absorbs rapidly, providing a smooth, cushioned texture for massage, while its lightly energising scent also gives a lift to your mood. I have been using the Olverum Firming Body Oil as part of my fitness journey and have seen a remarkable improvement.

OLVERUM Firming Body Oil provides an instant sensation of rejuvenation making skin visibly firmer, healthier, and revitalised.

Many B vitamins are interdependent, so it is best to take them in combination, for example in a B-complex or a multivitamin containing a B-complex. B vitamins are essential nutrients required by the body. They help our bodies convert food into energy, allowing us to stay energised throughout the day, as well as supporting our mental performance.

B vitamins are water soluble nutrients that are necessary to maintain energy and general vitality, but they are also used by a number of other important functions within the body including immune, nervous system and psychological functions.
