What does this mean?

INCI: Persea Gratissima Oil

An intensely nourishing oil that softens, protects and strengthens the skin and hair. Use it in body butters, body lotions and more to lock in moisture.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Avocado oil is a yellow-green, almost clear oil with a typical aroma obtained by pressing the flesh of the avocado pear.

Our organic avocado oil is an excellent all-round ingredient for skincare, hair conditioning treatments, aromatherapy and massage. Avocado oil penetrates deeply into the skin and provides hydration, making it particularly suitable for dry or mature skin types.

Cosmetic Functions:

According to the Cosmetic Ingredient Database (CosIng), the function of avocado oil is “skin conditioning”.

HOW TO USE IT

  • Use 1% to 100%. For most purposes, 10% is more than adequate.
  • Oil-soluble, so avocado oil cannot be used in water-only products. However, it can be used in small amounts in water-based gels that hold it in suspension.
  • Heat stable, so it can be used in stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.

Avocado oil can thicken and start to solidify at cold temperatures. If this happens, gently bring it up to room temperature, and it will again be pourable.

Organic Avocado Oil in Skin Care

  • An excellent oil for when the skin is dehydrated, dry and dull.
  • Nourishing emollient with vitamins A, B1, B2, D and E.
  • Rich in antioxidants and soothes dry and itchy skin.
  • Helps active ingredients better penetrate the skin.
  • Contains good nutritional properties with vitamin K and potassium content.
  • Replaces and enhances natural levels of palmitoleic acid, which decrease as we age.
  • Rich in vitamin D, making it valuable for use in anti-ageing serums or on sensitive skin.
  • Fantastic when making soaps for dry or mature skin, with unsaponifiable fractions that enrich the finished product.
  • Organic avocado oil spreads well on the skin and provides a healthy sheen — great for massage blends.
  • Use in night creams, rich body lotions, body butters, facial serums, eye creams, balms, aftershave creams and nappy rash ointments.

Organic Avocado Oil in Hair Care

  • Nourishes and improves scalp health.
  • Soothing to a dry and itchy scalp.
  • Untangles curls and provides shine.
  • Softens the hair and locks in moisture without feeling sticky.
  • Keeps the hair pliable and helps to prevent split ends.
  • Use in hair packs and conditioners.

We Love It Because

Organic avocado oil blends well with organic macadamia nut oil to make a rich and hydrating combination for dry, crepey or mature skin. To make it even richer, combine with avocado butter.

If you want to enjoy the benefits of organic avocado oil with a lighter skin feel, blend with EcoSilk or use drier oils such as chia seed oil or rosehip seed oil.
