The avocado, also called Persea Americana, is the fruit from a tree native to Mexico and Central America, classified in the flowering plant family Lauraceae. The oil obtained from avocados is rich in healthy fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants, which is why it is an important ingredient in our Skin Brightening Exfoliator and Cream Cleanser.
Avocados are rich in essential fatty acid Omega 3 and anti-oxidants, which can help to protect the skin from harmful UV damage and also repair the skin too. Omega 3 has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to soothe skin conditions such as dry skin and psoriasis.
Sterolin is abundant in avocado oil, which helps to soften the skin and reduce the signs of ageing, such as age spots. Avocado oil is full of vitamins too – mainly vitamins A, D and E, which nourish and hydrate dry, ageing skin.
