Avocado Oil (Cold Pressed)
is a rich and deeply penetrating oil. It contains beneficial vitamins and minerals including vitamins A,D. and E. It contains high levels of sterolins which are reputed to fade age spots and hyper-pigmentation. Avocado Oil contains high levels of Oleic Acid and so is deeply moisturising. It can help with skin damage, regeneration and cell regeneration (from the Oleic acid). Research has shown that Avocado Oil can help stimulate collagen production. It is ideal for formulations for dry and damaged skin. As it is regarded as fairly comedogenic it perhaps should not be used in products for oily and combination skin.
Oleic Acid enhances penetration of the skin by active ingredients and will enhance their benefits.
Please note: As this is a cold presses oil it will have a notable aroma and green colour which will affect the colour and perhaps the fragrance of a cream or lotion. If this might be an issue then please consider using our Refined Avocado Oil
