Avocados, a treasury of vitamins, minerals, and natural oils, were once used as an aphrodisiac. Although we make no guarantees on that account, the oils do have an ancient history of use in cosmetics. Ancient Aztec, Mayan, and Inca women believed that the avocado fed the skin from without as well as within.
Today avocado pulp is used to make moisturizing complexion masks. Avocados are high in beta-carotene, lecithin, fatty acids, potassium, and protein, not usually found in fruit. They are high in vitamins A and D and contain more vitamin E than any other fruit. Avocado pulp is rich, nourishing, and moisturizing leaving skin feeling soft and smooth.
