Avocado Oil is one of the lesser talked about oils in regards to skin and hair and as you might have guessed it comes from the Avocado fruit. Also known as Persea Gratissima this oil is a fantastic moisturizer and is loaded in antioxidants.
The Aztecs knew about the Avocado fruits amazing oil properties and utilized this oil for many purposes.
This wonder oil absorbs deep into the skin and helps to keep the skin hydrated for very long periods of time. As an anti-aging product Avocado oil is effective by preventing damage by free radicals. It also helps promote Collagen production to give the skin a plump, full, healthy appearance.
Another more recent finding is that Avocado oil decreases the amount of inflammatory cells during the healing process so it is appealing for use on damaged skin.
For hair/ beard care Avocado oil is equally beneficial. Because it is so easily absorbed it is good for moisturizing dry, damaged hair by deep conditioning and strengthening it. Dry, itchy scalp/face can also be relieved by applying Avocado oil.
This is one of my favorite oils for moisturizing and often finds its way into our products.
