Avocado Oil Skin Benefits:


The avocado oil derived from avocado fruit is primarily composed of omega-3 fatty acids and oleic acids, which are best known to help boost skin-hydration. Avocado essential oil also contains concentrations of pantothenic acid, Vitamin K, C, and E, folate, and potassium, which together may serve as a topical solution for soothing dry skin. When combined with aloe vera, avocado oil benefits can be used as a nourishing facial treatment and facial cleanser. 1 2
