  • Ingredients under the microscope: Avocado Oil

At Au Natural Skinfood, we are passionately using sustainably sourced, natural ingredients in our products instead of harsh synthetic alternatives. Lets explore Avocado Oil, a key ingredient, under the microscope so that you find out what it is, why we use it, and just what makes it so beneficial for your skin.

 

While avocados have exploded in popularity over recent years, becoming an essential ingredient to the perfect weekend brunch, their many and varied health benefits have been recognised for decades.

 

As a source of nutrition, the avocado is known to be high in mono-unsaturated fat, which means that while it is a good source of natural fibre and a healthy alternative to foods that contain saturated fat, it should always be eaten in moderation, and as part of a balanced diet.

 

The avocado’s high levels of mono-unsaturated fats can also have beneficial effects for the skin, as extracting their omega-rich fatty acids and naturally-occurring vitamins in the form of an oil means that they can be incorporated into nourishing skincare products. Unlike many other plant-based oils, the oil is not extracted from the seed or pit of the avocado, but rather by gently cold-pressing the pulp of sun-ripened avocados, which is then mixed over a low temperature to draw out the most beneficial parts of the oil.

 

Because the oil extracted is naturally rich in fatty acids, and vitamins A, D and E, it is a highly effective natural moisturiser, retaining and boosting hydration beneath the skin’s surface. Its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties also make New Zealand avocado oil a good match for skin that is prone to irritations or particular conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. In fact it forms a natural protective barrier to promote healing, whilst soothing existing problem areas and aiding in the production of new, healthy skin cells, while protecting and fortifying existing ones.

 

Au Natural Skinfood utilize New Zealand avocado oil’s healing and preventative qualities by incorporating it as a key ingredient in a number of our products, including our gentle cleanser, which works to improve the health of your skin at a cellular level while also cleansing it of irritants, unclogging pores, and removing makeup naturally.
