Objectives and scope of the Award
Basic scope of the award is to widen the knowledge and communication about the very many and magnificent gifts the olive tree has given to humanity all along its history.
Since the oldest time olive plants and fruits have been highly considered and have played an important economic role. They have been used as food, medicines or basic ingredients to prepare precious cosmetic essences and infusions. Every single part of the plant was employed for a specific use: leaves, bark, roots and fruits.
The EVO&EVA International Award is aimed at strengthening the understanding of manufacturers of natural and organic cosmetics of the outstanding cosmetic properties of the olive tree well known to ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, and to boost its use to give excellence to the natural and organic cosmetic products we can find today on the market.
The great passion and expertise of the promoters within the world of organic extra-virgin olive oil (EVO) has been the driver inspiring this first edition of the EVO&EVA International Award, aimed at giving importance to the best cosmetic products present on the market.
