Could the humble avocado become the next ‘Beauty Must Have’? The popularity of avocado as a ‘super food’ has been steadily rising thanks to their abundance of nutrients. But avocados are just as equally a ‘super food’ for our skin.
This is because 77% of the fat in an avocado is oleic acid – which helps prevent and repair damage to your skin by helping to encourage cell growth and increase the amount of collagen in the skin. And more importantly, it neutralises free radicals (caused by pollution, stress and toxins) which cause the skin to age more rapidly.
Three of our most popular products contain avocado – Botanicals Balancing mask, Mandarin and chamomile moisturiser and our Radiance facial serum. We also offer organic avocado cold-pressed oil. (Click on any link to view the products on our website.)
Here a few more reasons why avocados are a worthy choice for both your diet and skin care:
- They contain more potassium than bananas.
- Most fruit consists primarily of carbohydrate, while avocado is high in healthy fats.
- Numerous studies show that it has powerful beneficial effects on health.
