Avocado Oil: A Treat for Dry Skin

Avocado oil is an amazingly effective oil when it comes to nourishing and moisturising dry skin. But let's start from the beginning:

Avocados originate in the tropical rainforests of Mexico and Central America. They have been cultivated there for thousands of years. It was the Spanish who spread this food across the Caribbean, to Chile and as far as Europe. Avocados have been grown In the Mediterranean since the beginning of the 20th century. Today, there are over 400 different varieties, the best known of which are the dark Hass and the green Fuerte avocados.

Avocados provide your body with valuable fatty acids, many vitamins, high-quality protein, secondary plant substances and also some micronutrients, such as magnesium or zinc.

The oil from avocados is particularly popular with people who follow a vegan diet:
It consists of almost 70% unsaturated fatty acids plus 15% polyunsaturated fatty acids. These include oleic acid, linoleic acid, and palmitoleic acid. Avocado oil also contains vitamins A, D, and E.

How avocado oil affects the skin:

  • It has an antioxidant effect, making it ideal for counteracting signs of skin ageing
  • Stimulates cell renewal
  • Stimulates collagen formation
  • Stimulates the formation of connective tissue & promotes the elasticity of the skin
  • Acts against impurities & improves your complexion
  • Smoothes the skin & helps against wrinkles
  • Provides the skin with moisture

Skincare products with avocado oil are great if you have dry, flaky or sensitive skin, as they have a powerful hydrating effect and ensure that the skin is well moisturised.

The phytosterols content ensures that the oil spreads well and is absorbed quickly. The oleic acid helps to make sure that active ingredients penetrate quickly into the deep layers of the skin.

The palmitic and palmitoleic acids in avocados protect the skin barrier and make your skin supple.

Avocado oil can even improve symptoms of problems such as neurodermatitis, psoriasis, or sunburn. Avocado is a true all-rounder for all types of skin!

We use avocado oil primarily in our moisturising body care products:

But you'll also find avocado oil in our Organic Avocado - Lime Lip Balm, together with a few other nourishing oils and waxes.

Try giving your skin an intensive care session with avocado oil for dry, rough, flaky, or sensitive skin! These skincare products are especially good after a day at the beach - we like to treat ourselves to an extra large dab of the body lotion ;)
