Avocados yield a rich and extremely deep penetrating oil that penetrates the skin deeper than any other plant oil, increasing the ability to transport active substances through the outer epidermis of the skin and into the dermis for increased effectiveness, together with its wonderful natural emollient properties it is ideal for dry or mature skins.
Avocado oil is rich in Vitamin A, D & E, the youth mineral - 'potassium' and also high in 'sterolins', which are reputed to reduce age spots. Vitamin E is known to be a powerful antioxidant 'mopping up' free radicals and helping to decelerate the signs of ageing.
Renowned for its natural healing, anti-bacterial and anti-wrinkle properties, avocado oil also stimulates the collagen metabolism, increasing the proportion of soluble collagen in the dermis, retarding the visible signs of ageing.
Avocado oil is an excellent base for ointments used for treating lacerations, dermatitis, acne, psoriasis, eczema and similar skin conditions. Natural skin care products use the natural ability of avocado oil to regenerate connective tissue and to inhibit bacterial growth, which makes it useful when treating sun or climate damaged skin that is dehydrated and undernourished.
