The Benefits of Avocado Oil

Avocado oil (Persea gratissima) is a yellowish, green oil. It is pressed from the fleshy pulp that surrounds the avocado pit. It is a thick but very penetrating oil which is easily absorbed into the skin. Avocado oil is rich in vitamins A, B, and D. The green color is due to large amounts of chlorophyll and carotenoids. This makes the oil highly prone to oxidative effects when exposed to sunlight and thus must be stored in dark bottles.

Avocado oils is great for dry, aging or sun damaged skin, eczema and psoriasis. The antioxidants in avocado oil can fight the signs of aging and increase the rate of cell turnover and the Vitamin E can assist in reducing dry, itchy and inflamed skin.

Avocado oil also contains sterolins, which studies have shown to decrease the appearance of sun/age spots. Avocado oil is also reported to help stimulate the production of collagen, which is a key component of the skin’s support system. Skin with plenty of collagen is plump, firm and shows fewer wrinkles.

Avocado oil is used in soap and cosmetic products along with hair care treatments.
