INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT: AVOCADO

Posted on 25 July 2018

Do you carry an avocado in your purse - a ready lunch at a moment's notice? Is your Giphy history full of dancing avocados? Do your friends affectionately tag you in every avocado meme they come across?

If you're avocado-obsessed like us, chances are you'll stop at nothing short of bathing in a vat of guacamole to get more of the green super fruit in your life. But fear not, bathing in avocados may be more realistic than you think! Avocado is actually used in a host of beauty products to protect and heal the skin from UV damage, prevent wrinkles, and increase the skin's elasticity.

WHY AVOCADO OIL?


It contains high concentrations of carotenoids and lutein, both of which combat UV radiation through photo-protective properties. Most products make use of the oil, which comes from pressing the flesh of the fruit then running it through a centrifuge to separate the oil from the solids. The result is a beautiful green-tinged oil, rich in oleic acid that is a powerhouse antioxidant.1

So what are you waiting for?
Try these beautiful and effective skincare and makeup offerings, jam-packed with your favorite green fruit.
