Avocado - Persea gratissima

View Products

Click to expand benefits information

  • Contains a high content of Vitamin D…something we all need and often lack here in Wales!
  • Avocado oil contains a high amount of proteins and unsaturated fats, both of which are strong skin agents. Avocado oil actually contains omega-3 fatty acids – those very same fatty acids as found in fish oil. Thus, not only can this oil be used as a beneficial lotion, but also as healthy cooking oil!
  • Avocado oil is high in a substance called sterolin, which studies have shown to facilitate the softening of the skin and to reduce the incidence of age spots;
  • Rich in antioxidants, making it useful for healing sun-damaged skin. Antioxidants like vitamins A, D and E in avocado cause the skin to be suppler, and are thus particularly good for dry or aged skin.
  • Contains lecithin and potassium, which are all highly beneficial for the skin as well as the hair;
  • Increases the production of collagen, which helps keep the skin plump and decreases the effects of aging.
  • Avocado oil is one of the more deeply penetrating oils. It gets down into the deeper epidermis layers and helps to fix moisture into the skin. This makes it great for plumping out fine lines and dealing with dehydrated skin (even oily skin can be dehydrated!), as well as softening rough skin.

  • Consistency is dry to very dry and blueberry seed oil is a very good anti-wrinkle oil
  • Helps boost the elasticity of the skin
  • High antioxidant levels: One of the main reasons the skin ages is because of assault by free radicals from UV rays, pollution, other environmental elements, diet, and more. Antioxidants neutralize this damage, helping the skin to weather all sorts of stress and still retain its elasticity and glow. Put simply, these antioxidants help delay the aging process.
  • Vitamin E: also an antioxidant and has been found in recent studies to be particularly important when it comes to slowing down aging in the skin. Certain types of vitamin E, called “tocotrienols” (which are plentiful in blueberry seed oil), have been found to be more potent than vitamin E itself in protecting against free radical attack.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids: These “healthy fats” are skin care powerhouses that not only reduce sun sensitivity, but help diminish inflammation associated with acne. When we don’t get enough fatty acids for the skin, we get problems like inflammation, dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne. Applying omega-3s to the skin, on the other hand, helps diminish the appearance of wrinkles, and helps prevent “thinning” of the skin.
