Avocado Oil, Persea gratissima, expeller pressed from the pulp of the avocado fruit, is loaded with micronutrients. Unrefined avocado oil is a thick, green, moisturizing oil, rich in rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, B, C D, and E, as well as minerals such as iron, magnesium, copper, and potassium.
Unrefined avocado oil has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and emollient properties. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, avocado oil may help ease symptoms of irritated skin conditions like eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, or psoriasis. It may even be helpful for those with acne-prone skin. The antioxidants found in avocados, like vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids, also help ease dry skin and irritated skin conditions.
Avocado oil, a wonderfully hydrating oil, acts as a humectant that draws water molecules to the skin to help retain and preserve the moisture in your skin. It is a very penetrating oil due to its high oleic acid content. The outermost layer of the skin easily absorbs the phytosterols and other valuable nutrients in the oil help prevent loss of moisture and keep the skin hydrated.
In hair care, avocado oil provides essential nutrients to the scalp and hair shafts. It restores luster, hydrates dry and damaged ends, helps moisturize dry scalp, helps seal hair cuticle cells, and may help prevent hair breakage and improve a dry, flaking scalp.
We use virgin, unrefined, organic avocado oil. Unrefined oils have not gone through a refining, bleaching, or deodorization process and retain their natural color, characteristic scent, and nutritional benefits.
