Avocado Oil

A Natural Wonder for Skin and Hair

Avocado oil is a versatile and nutrient-rich oil that has been used for centuries to improve the health and appearance of skin and hair. Avocado oil is rich in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids, making it an ideal choice for nourishing and protecting the skin and hair. It is also non-comedogenic, meaning it does not clog pores.

Botany and History of avocado

The avocado tree is a member of the Lauraceae family, which also includes other popular fruits such as cinnamon and bay leaves. Avocado trees can grow up to 60 feet tall and produce fruit for over 30 years. 

Avocados have been cultivated in Central America and Mexico for thousands of years. The ancient Aztecs and Mayans used avocados to make food, medicine, and cosmetics. 

Today, avocado oil is still used for its many health and beauty benefits. It is a popular ingredient in natural skincare and hair care products.

The unrefined & organic avocado oil we use is produced from rejected avocados from a Kenyan farmer. This way, avocados get a second chance and together with Keyan farmers we work with against waste and towards a circular economy.

The oil is extracted by a cold pressing process from the pulp. Not from the pit, as many people think. This method leaves even more of the vitamins, minerals and healthy fatty acids originally present intact.

3 biggest skin benefits of avocado oil

Moisturizes and hydrates skin and hair

Avocado oil is a natural humectant, which means it attracts water to the skin and hair. This makes it ideal for keeping the hair hydrated and plump. Avocado oil is also rich in fatty acids, which help to strengthen the skin’s barrier and hair shaft.

Adds shine and luster to hair

Avocado oil can add shine and luster to the hair by coating the hair shaft and reflecting light. It also contains fatty acids that help to hydrate and nourish the hair, which can also contribute to its appearance. That is why we added a healthy dose of avocado oil to our conditioner bar.

Promotes hair growth

Avocado oil contains biotin, which is a B vitamin that is essential for hair growth. Biotin helps to produce keratin, which is the protein that makes up the hair shaft. Plus avocado oil contains oleic acid, which is a fatty acid that can help to improve blood circulation to the scalp. This is important because blood circulation brings oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles, which are essential for hair growth.

Conclusion

Avocado oil is a safe and effective natural remedy for a variety of skin and hair conditions. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids, which make it ideal for nourishing, protecting, and hydrating the skin and hair.
