The Ideal Natural Ingredient: Avocado
We have mentioned before the unlimited benefits that our skin can gain from using natural ingredients in natural and organic skin care products. From moisturizing to nurturing the skin, these ingredients are the new boom in the natural cosmetic industry. One of these ingredients is avocado oil.
Oil found in avocados is rich, has extremely high penetrating qualities and contains vitamins A, D and E, lecithin, potassium (more than what you can find in a banana, about 60% more), beta-carotene and over 20 essential fatty acids (palmitic, palmitoleic, stearic, oleic, linoleum and linolenic among others).
It’s very beneficial to the skin and considered the ideal ingredient. It is high in sterolins (also known as plant steroids) which help soften the skin and offers a superior moisturizing effect. Avocado oil also helps heal the skin from injuries from sun exposure and scars. Compared to jojoba, coconut, olive, apricot kernel and sesame, avocado has more sunscreen benefits.
The oil in avocados is good in making the skin strong by triggering the production of collagen. This helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and skin tone is enhanced. Collagen is also responsible for the development of new cells and tissues that avoid the viruses and bacteria from entering.
It helps in the regeneration and rejuvenating process of the skin. Because of its emollient properties it is a wonderful ingredient for mature skins. It also aids in relieving the dryness and itchiness caused by psoriasis and eczema.
