Did you know that the oil from the super delicious and nutritious Avocado fruit is widely used in cosmetic formulation because of its incredible healing and moisturizing properties?

Avocado oil is extracted through the cold pressing of Persea Americana (also called Persea Gratissima) and has an intense green color due to the high content of chlorophyll in it. Rich in nutrients, it has a significant value in skincare products. Although mistaken for a vegetable, avocado is a fruit of the berry family! It contains many easily digestible fats (glycerides of essential fatty acids and palmitoleic acid), vitamins (A, E, and D), macro - and microelements, and other biologically active components in its composition. Also, Persea Gratissima oil includes an enormous amount of vitamin E and squalene and contains phytosterols as constituents of the unsaponifiable matter. With its complex texture, avocado oil increases the elasticity of the epidermis and softens and moisturizes dry and chapped skin.

Avocado oil is suitable for all skin types. It will help improve blood circulation in the skin by enriching its tissues with the much-needed oxygen. Thanks to its deep penetration into the skin, Persea Gratissima oil stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, which are responsible for the elasticity and firmness of the skin. 

On the other hand, Persea Gratissima oil contains many proteins and unsaturated fatty acids that restore the skin's protective lipid barrier, adding a healthy glow and improving elasticity and firmness. It can regenerate all damaged cells of the face's skin and eliminate various irritations and rashes, rashes, wrinkles, peeling, and dryness. The oil is also ideal for the thin skin around the eyes, as it can make it soft, well-groomed, and moisturized, eliminating fine wrinkles and sagging. In addition, avocado oil moisturizes, soothes, and repairs dry skin.

It relaxes and supplies skin with lipids, makes skin feel pleasant, calms, and soothes. So, no wonder Avocado oil is included in many products for protective care of dry, aging, and sun-damaged skin.

Production process

Avocados are first sliced and dried before extracting the oil under pressure. The procedure for extracting the oil has been defined and controlled for growers in the producing countries.

A winterization follows the steps of neutralization, decoloring, and deodorizing. Persea Gratissima oil is maintained in the cold for several days and is clarified by filtering high melting point glycerides. This additional step furnishes an oil that remains clear after 2 hours at-5°C.

Avocado oil's rheological and solubilizing properties make it an ideal excipient for cosmetic formulation. The balanced composition of Persea Gratissima oil (fatty acids, essential fatty acids, unsaponifiables) makes it an ingredient of choice for sensitive or atonic skin care. Its affinity for the skin and its excellent acceptability make it an ideal component for formulating products destined for lipid-depleted, dehydrated, and lusterless skin.

What are the benefits of avocado oil?

The oil is rich in vitamins A, D, E, lecithin, and potassium – all known to be essential for the excellent appearance of your skin. Not only do they nourish and soothe, but vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant) also neutralizes potentially harmful free radicals, thus protecting your skin from aggressive external factors that can cause premature aging.

It’s not just your face that can benefit from Avocado oil. Persea Gratissima oil soothes and nourishes the hair when applied to the scalp. Easy and quick at-home treatment for healthy, beautiful locks. Dry, itchy scalp – Avocado oil is here to help!

One of the best properties of avocado oil, which makes it an excellent carrier of active ingredients, is its ability to penetrate easily into the deeper layers of the skin (compared to the penetrative power of other widely used oils), delivering a rich cocktail of nutrients.
