Avocado Oil is obtained from cold pressing the oily flesh (not seed) of the avocado fruit. It is an intensive, rich, restorative and softening oil, indicated for eczema, psoriasis, and diaper rash. It is typically used as an additive to other base oils up to 30%, and may also be helpful for softening and protecting the skin while promoting cell regeneration.
Avocado oil is excellent for mature, undernourished, dry or fragile skin that have been altered from the effects of sun damage. When used in massage blends it helps to increase hydration in the upper layers of the skin and improves elasticity. It has a high sterol (10%) content that has value for arthritic pain and possibly beneficial for post-menopausal skin prone to aging.
