Avocado oil

The avocado is the fruit of the avocado tree (Persea gratissima), which comes from the Lauraceae family and originates in Mexico and Guatemala. Avocado pulp contains 5 to 30% of oils.

Avocado oil has high levels of palmitoleic acid, which penetrates easily while leaving behind a protective layer, making it ideal for delicate skin. It is also rich in oleic acid, which has emollient properties. This oil makes the skin soft and supple and improves its elasticity.

Avocado oil contains large quantities of unsaponifiable compounds (tocopherols, sterols, terpenic alcohol, polyols, hydrocarbons, etc.) with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and healing properties.

Avocado oil moisturizes, fortifies, regenerates, and protects the skin. It also combats skin ageing and activates collagen synthesis. It is of interest to the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries and in soap making. It is used to make products for the hair, nails, face, and body.
