Botanical Name: Persea Americana
Extraction Method: Cold pressed from the pulp of the avocado fruit
Description: Avocado oil is produced from the fruit of the avocado tree. It is native to the Western Hemisphere from South Mexico to Andean regions. This oil is pressed from the fleshy pulp surrounding the avocado pit. It is full of healthy fats, including oleic acid and essential fatty acids.
It is ideal for use in the manufacturing of soaps for its emollience as well as its lathering and cleansing properties. It is also commonly used in cosmetics, due to its fast penetration rate and absorption, its high vitamin content, its subtle aroma that can easily be masked, and its excellent preservative qualities. It is less greasy than other oils, and its emulsifying properties produce finer blends and thus is an excellent ingredient in moisturisers.
Moisturises and Nourishes: It works as a regenerating, rehydrating treatment for skin that soothes and enhances texture.
Reduces signs of aging: It smooths the look of wrinkles, tightens skin, and diminishes the appearance of scars, age spots, and other unwanted blemishes. It can be used on dry, rough, aging, sensitive, or irritated skin such as skin afflicted with psoriasis.
Prevents acne: When left on for short periods of time and rinsed off with warm water, avocado oil can keep skin hydrated without leaving an oily residue. This may reduce the risk of acne. The anti-inflammatory properties of this oil helps to reduce redness
Relieves pain: When used in massages, it is known to naturally treat insomnia and inflammation, reduces muscular stiffness, joint pain, and tension, and boosts circulation.
Hair care: It straightens and softens strands while nourishing, hydrating, and strengthening them. By stimulating circulation to the hair follicles, it promotes new, healthier growth and prevents hair loss. It also protects hair against damage caused by environmental stressors and helps purge clogged hair follicles.
