#IngredientSpotliht: Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil
Avocado may have earned its spot on toast, but oil bet that you can’t believe it’s well-deserving of a spot in your natural beauty routine too!
Derived from the well-loved brunch staple, organic and natural persea gratissima (avocado) oil is found on the hypoallergenic ingredient lists of the top natural beauty products spanning fully vegan skincare-infused makeup.
In this #IngredientSpotliht, you’ll learn a bunch about our fully vegan, organic and naturally derived avocado oil and its 3 scientifically proven natural beauty benefits for your skin!
1. Speeds up wound healing and recovery!
Avocado oil is a godsend for healing cuts and wounds on even the most severely damaged skin. This study attributes such healing benefits to the generous amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids (e.g. linoleic acid, oleic acid, lecithin) present in it. Coupled with its slightly heavier and viscous physical texture, fully vegan and natural avocado oil helps to cocoon damaged skin, even open wounds, infusing it with all the necessary fatty acids for speedier healing and recovery time!
2. Mimics the skin’s natural moisture barrier!
Minimizing trans-epidermal loss (TEWL) is the name of the game to achieve a healthy, natural moisture barrier. Your natural moisture barrier is the external layer of skin that helps to retain water and defend against external irritants, including the natural elements (e.g. rain, wind). An impaired barrier is sensitized, dry and can even be painful to the touch. Thankfully, this study found that among many other fully vegan plant oils, avocado oil mimics the skin’s natural moisture barrier; in doing so, it helps to replenish the levels of TEWL in one that has already been damaged. It works double time to increase hydration levels in the stratum corneum (“barrier”) to boot!
3. Increases collagen metabolism!
Last, but certainly not least, fully vegan, organic and natural avocado oil also contains no harmful chemicals but only crucial ones for natural beauty and anti-aging benefits! Vitamins A, D, and E found in avocado oil not only helps to heal damaged skin and your moisture barrier, but this study found that it could also help to increase collagen metabolism with age!
