    Avocado Oil Description:

    Avocado oil is an emollient similar to other non-fragrant plant oils. It is a good source of fatty acids which have skin replenishing qualities such as restoring the skin's hydrolipidic film and softening dry skin. The fatty acids in avocado oil are also a great benefit for hair by hydrating the cuticle and hair shaft. Avocado oil has antioxidant properties due to its high vitamin A and E content which helps fight against the harmful effects of free radicals such as environmental pollution and UV exposure which can cause skin damage and brittle hair. Avocado oil has the ability to penetrate the core of the hair which softens dry hair which lacks nutrition and nourishes it to restore the hair which makes it smooth and shiny.
