Short Description:

Avocado oil has been used in African skin treatments for centuries. This highly therapeutic oil is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B5 (Panthothenic acid), Vitamin D, E, minerals, protein, lecithin and fatty acids. It is a useful, penetrating nutrient for dry skin and eczema. Avocado oil is said to have healing and regenerating qualities. It may be used in massage oils as well as creams, lotions, balms, body butters, hair oils and lip balms. It also has a high percentage of unsaponifiables, making it excellent oil for use in soaps. Although it can be used as a major portion of oils for a sensitive skin bar, it is relatively expensive. Shelf life 1 year.
