Very rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (specially Omega 9), our organic avocado oil contains Omega 6 essential fatty acid, significant quantities of Palmitoleic acid (natural constituent of human’s skin), natural Vitamin E, phytosterols and squalene. The high amount of Omega 9 (Oleic fatty acid) gives this oil a deep skin penetration and enhances the absorption of other nutrients, making avocado oil a very good moisturiser and hydrating oil. The presence of Palmitoleic acid provides regenerative effect - for being “familiar” to our body, Palmitoleic acid is absorbed into and provides nourishment to skin’s lower layers - and the phytosterols stimulate cell production. Studies have also found that avocado oil significantly increases the amount of collagen in the skin, which tends to decrease as we age. Therefore avocado oil is ideal for mature skins which tend to be thinner with much lower collagen and cellular regeneration rates. This oil is also beneficial for treating sun and weather damaged skin that is dehydrated and undernourished. Our organic avocado oil is a thick oil, with slow drying time, which also makes it a good oil for massage blends. All in all, an excellent addition to skincare products and routines!
