Since olive oil has been reported to be a potent antioxidant, we examined its effects on Swiss albino mice. Olive oil was applied topically before repeated exposure of the mice to UVB. Histological data indicated that penetration of the olive oil into the skin of the mice was direct correlated with the time of exposure to UVB radiation. Additional experiments will be required to demonstrate the ability of olive oil to inhibit DNA damage induced by UVB.
