Persea americana

Persea americana


A native of Central America, the Avocado is rich in vitamins A, B5 (Pantothenic Acid), D and E, as well as minerals, protein, lecithin and fatty acids. The deeply moisturizing oil of avocado was the traditional beauty oil of Mexican and African tribeswomen.

Avocado Oil is a plant derived emollient that mimics the lipid content of the skin. It helps stabilize and maintain the structure of the skin's inter-cellular matrix, preventing moisture loss and cell damage and promoting skin's soft, smooth, healthy appearance.
