Avocado Oil originates from the the Avocado tree ‘Persea Americana’ native to Mexico and South America. The fruit of the plant also called an avocado (or avocado pear/alligator pear) have greenish to yellowish flesh that encases a large seed pip. It takes around 80 Avocado’s to produce 1kg of oil.
HOW IT’S MADE?
Avocado oil is one of the few oils not derived from seed. The process for recovering oil from ripe avocados begins when the skin is removed along with its pip leaving only the flesh of the fruit behind. It is then blended into a smooth paste and churned at a low heat for an hour to aid the extraction of the oil. The Avocado paste is then placed to a centrifuge, which spins the pulp with enough force to separate the oil and the water contained in the pulp.
WHY DO WE USE AVOCADO OIL?
Avocado Oil is extremely rich in vitamins A, B, D, and E, as well as a high level of potassium, phytonutrients, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. In addition to being an exceptional emollient and moisturizer, It’s one of the highest penetrating oils available having the ability to quickly penetrate deep into the skin, helping transport other beneficial nutrients into the skin’s cells. Containing up to 80% omega-9 Oleic acid, this is considered to be most beneficial for dry and aging skin. It gets its superior moisturizing ability from its high sterolin content. This hydrating property helps assists in the rejuvenation and regeneration of skin and replenish lost moisture.
