Avocado oil is derived from the avocado fruit and consists of components like Vitamin E, potassium, lecithin and fatty acids. The antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents in the oil help skin stay smooth, strong and elastic. It can be used in skin care to help calm itchy skin, to hydrate or moisturise the skin, and assist in shielding the skin from UV radiation. The beta carotene, protein, lecithin, fatty acids and Vitamins A, D, & E found in the oil can also assist in the production of collagen. Avocado oil can be incorporated into a skin care routine in a variety of ways, such as in a lotion, as an oil moisturiser, in creams, and even in face masks.
