Avocado oil can offer a range of potential benefits for skincare due to its rich composition. 

Skin softening: The emollient properties of avocado oil are thought to help in softening and smoothening the skin's texture, reducing dryness and roughness.

Nourishment: Avocado oil is said to be rich in vitamins and nutrients that nourish the skin, promoting a healthy complexion.

Enhanced absorption: Avocado oil is considered to be easily absorbed by the skin, without leaving a greasy residue.

Skin barrier support: Avocado oil may help support the skin's natural barrier function, protecting it from external irritants.

Soothing effect: Some reports suggest that avocado oil can have a soothing and calming effect on irritated or sensitive skin.

Suitable for sensitive skin: Avocado oil is generally considered gentle and suitable for various skin types, including sensitive skin.

It's important to remember that individual responses to skincare products can vary, and the use of avocado oil should be done with caution, especially if you have known allergies or skin sensitivities. For specific skin concerns or conditions, consider seeking advice from a dermatologist or skincare professional.


Please note: This product is 100% pure unrefined avocado oil and may require mixing to bring natural separation and fractionation of fatty acids to a homogenous solution. Natural variations in colour and aroma may occur.
