Our Virgin Organic Avocado Oil is cold pressed from the fruit of the avocado tree.
As an unrefined oil, virgin organic avocado oil carries a darker green color with a characteristic odor and taste.
The oil is known to be rich in vitamin E and the essential fatty acid Oleic Acid
It is a rich heavy oil, that is deeply penetrating and rich in vitamins A and D, lecithin, potassium as well as vitamin E.
The organic, virgin Avocado oil is green in color as it still contains chlorophyll and is classified as a mono-unsaturated oil.
It is often used for clients with dry or mature skins, or people suffering from eczema or psoriasis, and is very useful when treating sun or climate damaged skin that is dehydrated and undernourished as it is said to help with regenerating the skin and softening the tissue.
Although it can be used pure, it is in most cases mixed with another carrier oil.
