Avocado Oil

What Is Avocado Oil?

Avocado oil is a vegetable oil used in cosmetics for its moisturizing and antioxidant properties. It is rich in fatty acids such as oleic acid (up to 66%) and palmitic acid (12 to 24%). It also contains vitamins A, E and D. The avocado comes from the botanical family of the Lauraceae.

In our cosmetic products, avocado oil appears in the list of ingredients on the packaging, under the name PERSEA GRATISSIMA (AVOCADO) OIL.

Where does it come from?

Tropic sources some of its avocado oil from small producers in Kenya and Tanzania who are certified organic and “Fair For Life”, a fair trade standard. Avocados used to make cosmetic oil are those that do not have the caliber to be exported and sold in the food industry. Their use to produce avocado oil is an important source of income for these small producers, who also receive a development fund to carry out community projects.

What Are The Benefits?

With a high vitamin E and A content, known for their antioxidant properties, avocado oil helps fight against the harmful effects of free radicals.

Thanks to its fatty acid content, avocado oil helps restore the skin's hydrolipidic film and softens dry skin.

A study has shown that avocado oil has the ability to penetrate to the core of the hair.

How Do We Use It?

We use avocado oil in our face and body skincare products for its moisturizing and antioxidant properties. It is used in haircare products, such as conditioners and masks, to give shine and smoothness to dry hair.
