Organic Virgin Avocado Oil is pressed from the flesh of the avocado, a fruit that grows on trees native to the Americas and the Caribbean. Also known as the alligator pear, the fruit has been cultivated since at least 900 A.D. This nutritive oil has been used for centuries in the beauty and skin care regimens of indigenous Central and North American populations.
The emolliency and impressive nutritional profile of our Organic Virgin Avocado Oil makes it an ideal ingredient for inclusion in skin care formulations intended to soothe dry, dehydrated, damaged and mature skin. Its notable content of unsaturated fatty and essential fatty acids also makes it ideal for inclusion in nourishing, moisturizing hair care formulations.
Our Organic Virgin Avocado Oil is cold pressed from organic avocados. It is then carefully sourced and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this remarkably nutritive oil.
As with all of our premium quality organic ingredients, our Organic Virgin Avocado Oil is non-GMO. It is certified organic by CCOF, a USDA-accredited organic certifying agency, and it fully meets USDA organic regulations.
