What are the benefits of olive water?


I am making my own shampoo and having read a high end olive oil shampoo label I see that it contains "olive water".. what is it, what benefits does it hold to the quality of the shampoo and where do you get it??

Olive Oil News

We sell olive presses; we call what's left after crushing the olive and removing the oil and solids "olive water". It is the juice of the olive and is high in antioxidants such as polyphenols. I think the main benefit it adds to the shampoo is a marketing gimmick. Olive ingredients seem to be the fad in cosmetics and personal care items this season.
