The many reasons why Avocado Oil is good for your skin…
and the whole family.
We live in a society where our skin and overall appearance are some of the factors which hold great significance. People are often judged by the way they look and carry themselves. Therefore, almost every individual out there wants to have clean, smooth and glowing skin.
Avocado oil is a luscious and thick oil that you can obtain from the flesh of avocados. The oil of avocados can be used in cooking and is considered as a miracle fruit with outstanding goodness beneficial to your body, both inside and out. Avocado oil has extensive benefits such as anti-inflammatory, healing, moisturising, antioxidant and nourishing properties.
When used for the skin, Avocado Oil (Persea Americana) is "cold pressed". Cold pressing refers to oils obtained through pressing fruit or seeds with a modern steel press. Cold pressed oils retain all their flavour, aroma, and nutritional value, making these oils great for cooking and skin care requirements.
Avocado oil was originally, and still is, extracted for cosmetic use because of its very high skin penetration and rapid absorption. And naturally it contains vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E, and Beta carotene. Avocado oil is typically yellow green to green brown in colour, and can go cloudy in low temperatures. Because of the costs, commonly very small amounts of avocado oil is added to other carrier oils in order to enrich protein and vitamin content. It is used predominantly by manufacturers in soaps, lotions and creams and by massage therapists.

Post Sun Applications
Post sun exposure, skin can be damaged and dehydrated, so just as we apply a rich sunscreen prior to sun exposure, it is important to nourish the skin post sun exposure. Avocado oil is a great choice for post sun support to aid in the repair of sun damaged skin. Avocado oil helps skin to regenerate and heal, making avocado oil useful for maintaining the health and softness of your skin. According to a 2013 study published in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The Brazilian researchers found that avocado oil is rich in oleic acid and contains essential fatty acids.
"When used in pharmaceutical formulations for topical use, avocado oil can promote increased collagen synthesis and decreased numbers of inflammatory cells during the wound-healing process and may thus be considered a new option for treating skin wounds," the researchers wrote.
The antioxidants found in avocado oil can help soothe sunburned skin. Antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E flavonoids, and phenolic acids help to fight free radicals.
