Avocado Face Cream: The Skin Benefits of Avocado Oil

Skin Benefits of Avocado Oil

Whether you’re a night owl or an early bird, a natural night cream should have a permanent place on your bathroom shelf. An avocado face cream can be your secret weapon for waking up with healthy skin. Our Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream is globally loved – and for good reason! It’s clinically proven to reduce skin dryness by 85%. * It’s the avocado oil that elevates this dream avocado face cream to legendary status. Read on to find out the incredible skin benefits of avocado oil …

What Is Avocado Oil?

Avocado oil is extracted from the pulp of the fruit, not the seed. We source ours from the sun-drenched environment of New Zealand’s North Island. It’s an edible oil, and a clean and nourishing ingredient for skincare. To us, given its skin benefits, avocado oil is quite simply “green gold”.

Why Is Avocado Oil Good for Skin?

With several benefits for skin, our avocado oil is sourced from New Zealand nature and is a powerful skincare ingredient as it’s:

  • Natural and free from toxins
  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Full of essential fatty acids
  • Rapidly absorbed by skin

What are the Benefits of Avocado Oil for Skin?

Naturally rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, avocado oil has many benefits for skin:

Reduces signs of early aging

Antioxidant-rich, avocado oil can help to reduce the signs of early aging as it supports the protection of skin from the effects of free radical damage. Free radicals are the nasties which can speed up the signs of aging in your skin.

Avocado oil can also reduce signs of early aging as it’s packed full of Vitamin C, Vitamin B, Vitamin D, E and K!

It’s no wonder, then, that avocado oil is used in anti-aging skincare. It’s why we include it in our anti-aging eye cream, Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream.

Protects skin from sun damage

What’s more, avocado oil contains a component called lutein. What is lutein, then? It’s a substance that helps to absorb and filter UV light, offering protection from sun damage.

Rejuvenates skin and reduces inflammation and dark spots

This wonderful oil is full of beta-carotene, proteins, lecithin, and fatty acids. These fatty acids have been shown to reduce inflammation and sun-damaged skin.

Avocado oil also has high levels of plant compounds called phytosterols. The phytosterols mimic cholesterol, helping to prevent moisture loss in skin. With anti-inflammatory properties, they even help to rejuvenate tired and stressed skin.

Deeply moisturises skin

Another benefit of avocado oil for skin is that this super-powered oil floods the skin with moisture. It’s used in moisturisers for dry skin because it makes skin beautifully dewy and supple.

Avocado oil doesn’t just moisturise and protect dry skin. It also replenishes skin that needs hydration, making it natural skincare for dehydrated skin.

Boosts collagen

Avocado oil’s secret ingredient is sterolin. This is a natural steroid that triggers the production of collagen. Collagen is essential in helping protect the skin from wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. It’s the protein that makes skin plump and youthful!

Sterolin works together with the fatty acids and vitamins in avocado oil. The result: skin feels plumper and more radiant. It’s not surprising, then, that we use avocado oil in our best-selling avocado face cream.

Balances skin

Avocado oil helps to balance and regulate your skin’s natural sebum production. That makes it effective for both oily skin and dry skin. It’s also suitable for sensitive skin conditions, although we always recommend patch testing first.
