Avocado oil is made from cold-pressing the flesh of the avocado fruit and can have an immediate effect on the texture and appearance of skin. It is rapidly absorbed and able to penetrate more deeply than most other oils, reaching past the epidermis and into the dermis. Due to its humectant nature, Avocado oil attracts and binds to moisture, prolonging its protection against dehydration. It has been proven to stimulate collagen synthesis and to decrease the number of inflammatory cells in wound healing.When used topically, over time Avocado oil has been proven to reduce the appearance of scars. It is one of the richest sources of beneficial monounsaturated fatty acids such as oleic acid and is full of vitamins (C and E) and powerful antioxidants like lecithin, potassium, beta-carotene and lycopene, as well as flavonoids and phenolic acids — all of which play integral roles in halting the effects of free-radicals created by sun damage, environmental toxins, stress and injury.
