Skin and Hair Suitability of Organic Avocado Oil
This ultra rich Avocado treasure is especially useful in cosmetic blends where the final formulation is going to be quite thick, for example a body butter or Shea & Cocoa based balm. It is also especially useful in conditioners for hair care, where the rich fatty like oil provides last nutrition for the hair.
This ultra rich oil is a delightful treasure containing high amounts of Vitamin A, B1, B2, D, and E and also contains amino acids, sterols, pantothenic acid, lecithin, and other essential fatty acids.
Throughout history avocado oil has been renowned to have healing and regenerating properties. It is very useful when treating sun, climate or chemical damaged skin that is dehydrated and undernourished. It is reported to help regenerate and rejuvenate the skin as well as soften the skin tissue. Avocado oil is well known as a nutrient for penetrating dry skin and resolving other skin problems.
When using Cold Pressed Avocado directly on the skin, we recommend combining with Fractionated Coconut (Caprylic / capric triglyceride) (30% Avocado, 70% Fractionated Coconut), where the lighter, penetrating nature of the Fractionated Coconut will help the skin absorb the nutritious and rich properties of the Avocado.

Organic Avocado Oil is especially useful in hair conditioners
Unrefined Avocado Oil has a sweet intense scent
The Avocado Oil is extracted from the fleshy pulp surrounding the avocado pit.
Our Organic Oil is completely coldpressed and unrefined, this means it maintains the original scent, which is Sweet and very strong.
When used in blends with other carrier oils and in cosmetic product formulation (where it is best used), this oil will add colour to your final product. The scent is also reduced when using in blends, especially where heat is applied, such as in the production of hair conditioner or skin creams.
Please see our refined Avocado Oil for a lighter oil that has the scent removed and more suited to direct skin use.
Precuations when using Organic Avocado Oil
No precautions recorded and as with all carrier oils (except St John’s Wort) it safe to use during pregnancy.
Always check for any allergies.
