Avocado Oil, Persea americana (6665)
Avocado Oil is suitable for all skin types, but is particularly nourishing for dry and dehydrated skin. It has a high content of the unusual fatty acid palmitoleic acid and an array of vitamins, amino acids and proteins all of which help to support the skin's structure and aid collagen production. With anti-inflammatory and regenerating properties, Avocado oil is excellent as an addition to anti-ageing skincare formulations.
Avocado oil has quite a thick texture so is best added to other base oils in a 10% dilution. It should be stored in the fridge once opened. Organic Avocado Oil is also available.
This is a pure natural therapeutic quality carrier oil from Kenya. Many carrier oils have significant benefit for maintaining a healthy and youthful skin. See also About Carrier Oils.
