Avocado Oil, a precious liquid gold from Mother Nature, pampers hair and body beautifully. Used morning and evening, the oil spreads easily, melting into your skin providing a protective veil of velvety softness. Delicately fragranced with Tiare flowers, this universal face, body and hair oil works wonders on mature skin, and is especially effective at preventing stretch marks.
Native to Mexico, the avocado tree (Persea gratissima) is cultivated in tropical and subtropical zones, particularly in the West Indies. It benefits from the sunny climate and ripens under the influence of the multitude Caribbean fragrances that are carried in with the trade winds.
The first cold press of the fruit flesh preserves the vitamins A, D and E in the oil. Also rich in lecithin and potassium, a true youth-promoting mineral, it also contains proteins, beta-carotene and more than 20% of essential unsaturated fatty acids (such as palmitic, palmitoleic, stearic, oleic, linoleic and linolenic acids). The sterols in the oil boost its nourishing virtues. Due to containing certain lipids, vitamins and nutrients that occur naturally in the skin, the absorption of avocado oil by the epidermis is effortless. With anti-ageing properties, it significantly increases the amount of collagen in the skin. Its nutritional, regenerative and protective virtues bring elasticity and comfort back to all skin types, especially dry and/or mature skin. Details about the main characteristics and traditional uses have been provided as information here above.
Avocado Oil contains a natural plant dye from tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum fruit extract), which fades within a few weeks if left in direct sunlight for a certain amount of time. An opaque deposit may also form at the bottom of the bottle of Avocado Oil. This is liquid wax, which reinforces the nutritional qualities of the avocado oil.
