All About Avocado (Skincare)

Let’s think about an avocado. It’s buttery, creamy, fatty (but in the healthy way) and oh-so-delicious. They’re praised as a trendy and tasty way to get your healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals – the same healthy fats and vitamins that can help your skin! The Avocado Skincare Set uses these fats and vitamins to deeply hydrate and nourish dry and mature skin. The Avocado Kit is meant to be used together and includes a moisturizer, a cleanser, and a serum.

Chris Longo, the company’s President and CEO states, “Avocado has long been known for its benefits as a superfood, but its benefits for skincare are less realized. We were inspired by its incredibly hydrating properties to create a full skincare line for our dry-skinned customers. It’s going to be the next big thing in natural beauty!” So, not only is the superfood great for avocado toast and guacamole, it’s also the perfect hydrator for dry and mature skin.

It's full of antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamins that nourish for softer and more youthful-looking skin. Dr. Emmanuel Loucas, M.D. with Lucas Dermatology & Laser Center explained a little bit more about this. "Avocados are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C & E, that help prevent damage to your skin by sun exposure and every day pollutants. This leads to help treat fine wrinkles and improve texture and tone." Avocado oil is high in oleic acid that is rich in Omega-9 fatty acids and is useful for deeply moisturizing the skin. It is also known to be an anti-inflammatory that can be used to help reduce redness and puffiness in the skin. Shannon with EZCareClinic told us, "The antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents in avocado oil help your skin stay smooth, strong, and elastic." Antioxidants in avocado oil prevent free radical damage and can reduce signs of premature aging. Vitamin B12 is often used to support a healthy glow and can be used to nurture dry skin, including psoriasis and eczema.

Our Avocado Line is recommended for those with normal to extremely dry skin. Oleic acid and B12 hydrate and feed your dry skin the nutrients it needs for a healthy glow. It is a deeply moisturizing formula that will leave dry, irritated skin feeling quenched. Because it is so hydrating, mature skin may see reduced signs of aging and softer, smoother skin. Amna Rizvi with Tips On Fitness Online commented, "They contain natural oils that can penetrate the skin to soften, nourish, and hydrate it. The hydrating properties may reduce wrinkles and fine lines, help keep your skin silky smooth and boost your skin’s immunity against stress and other environmental factors."

The Avocado Cleanser is made with avocado oil, jojoba oil, and green tea for a nourishing, deeply moisturizing cleanse that won’t dry out the skin. Formulated to be creamy and lightweight, the Avocado Moisturizer uses avocado oil and other natural ingredients like shea butter to nourish the skin without being heavy or greasy. For concentrated hydration, the Avocado Serum is created specifically for those with dry and mature skin who need extra nourishment. The full Avocado Complete Skincare Set is also available with serum, moisturizer, and cleanser.
