Many skin care brands turn to synthetic petrochemicals in their pursuit of skin hydration. We believe nature did a better job when it created avocados.
Avocado oil (Persea Gratissima) is a fantastic natural ingredient that provides a huge benefit when formulated into active skin care and anti aging products. The avocado (actually a fruit) is rich in proteins and fats, sterolin, anti-oxidants, lecithin and potassium. Studies have also shown avocado oil to actually increase collagen*, decrease wrinkles, and repair the effects of sun damage. Avocado oil penetrates deeply into the skin for fantastic hydration and relief of certain skin sensitivities.
In a well formulated cream it's non-occlusive, meaning it won't clog pores or encourage break outs...unlike coconut oil.
