Natural oils such as avocado are extremely high sources of powerful nutrients serving as effective emollients for the use in skin care products.  Avocado oil contains healthy concoction of vitamins and minerals which all contribute to the rejuvenation of the skin.  These include vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and E along with potassium and beta-carotene.

Avocado oil deems more effective than alternative oils due to the fact it can penetrate more deeply into the skin, allowing ease of transportation for vital nutrients through all layers of the skin.  Avocado oil has proven to be suitable on all skin types and is especially gentle on sensitive, mature, and problem skin.

Healing Agent

Avocado oil works wonders on blemished or sun-damaged skin.  It contains a compound called sterolin whose function is to absorb fat and in the process improve the body’s immune system.  By improving the immune system it speeds healing process and this helps to relieve the effects of sunburn, heal wounds, and minimize blemishes.  This powerful compound is also responsible for regenerating connective tissue as well as preventing the growth of bacteria and is therefore a beneficial element for skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.

Anti-Aging

Vitamin E is the number one vitamin required to protect our bodies from sun damage and risks of cancer by eliminating free radicals, as are omega-3s.  Avocados are known to be the more rich in vitamin E than most other fruits.  These powerful antioxidants help to protect white blood cells while also acting as a protective UV barrier

Collagen is the single most important factor in keeping the skin looking and feeling younger. It forms a natural shield against wrinkles along with other signs of aging including age spots.  Avocado oil contains collagen-producing qualities and for this reason it should be an essential part of your daily skin care regime.

Moisturizer

Avocado oil is a natural moisturizer with hydrating properties that are easily absorbed into the deepest layers of the skin.  It acts as a natural emollient with the ability to retain moisture and water allowing the skin tissue to stay soft and supple. Because of these moisturizing qualities avocado oil proves to be an effective ingredient used for the treatment of dry skin including the scalp.  Essential fatty acids are also prominent in avocado oil, further enhancing its moisturizing ability as well as promoting healthy cell function and growth.

Avocado oil is a common ingredient found in a variety of skin care products and treatments, and why wouldn’t it be with all its beneficial properties?  Of course you are never limited to just what’s available in stores, there are endless recipes and treatments you can make at home just waiting for you to try.

    Avocado oil is great also for hair, especially black hair which is extremely frail but can require alot of moisture. With Avocados being so healthy and delicious you can make sure you are getting maximum effect by eating and by putting it in your hair and skin.
