General: Native to central Mexico, the avocado tree has a long history of culivation in Inca, Maya, and Aztec cultures, likely dating back to 5000 B.C. The huge seed enables seedlings to grow up above dark, dank rainforest vegetation without needing to rely on external nutrients. All the nutrients it needs to get started are packed inside.
Skin Benefits: Avocado oil is exceptionally rich in texture and feel. High in essential omega fatty acids and proteins, vitamins A, B1, B2, D and E. Strengthens and soothes irritated, sensitive skin and deeply moisturizes chronically dry skin. For examples of its applications see our Honey Avocado Hydrating Recovery Mask or our Nourishing Herbal Night or Day Cream.
Method of Extraction: Oil is cold-pressed from the seeds. Unrefined, virgin.
