INCI: Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil
Oh, Oh, Organic, Inc. is proud to offer organic virgin and organic avocado oil, refined.
Our organic virgin avocado oil is a gorgeous, deep green with a rich aroma of concentrated avocados. Due to its high pigmentation, it will change the color of your formula to a lovely green.
The refined version is a light yellow with little to no odor. This oil is better suited if you don’t want to change the color to your formula.
The Story :
Avocados are fruit, not a vegetable. Most oil come from nuts or seeds but avocado oil is expressed from the fruit.
Archeologists have found evidence of avocados dating back almost 10,000 years in the state of Puebla in central Mexico. Evidence suggests they were cultivated as a food source at around 5000 BC by Mesoamerican people. Later records show how avocados spread around the globe moving north to California and on to Australia and Africa.
The Quality :
We take pride in the quality of our oil. We consistently test our new batches of avocado oil when they arrive and continue random testing to ensure we supply you with the freshest oils.
Avocados are harvested for oil when they are fully ripe and then processed. The virgin oil is filtered but largely unchanged from the first pressing of the fruit leaving all the nutrients and dark color in the oil. The refined version is filtered through clay and a vacuum is pulled to remove color and aroma.
The Benefits :
Avocado oil is easily absorbed. The green pigment in the natural oil comes from chlorophyll which is nourishing and moisturizing. As an emollient it has a beautiful finish and is a great creamy, velvety alternative to coconut oil or olive oil.
This oil is safe and stable. It is naturally high in oleic and linoleic acids, both high omega oils – which fight oxidation. It contains dense nutrients including phytopigments, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and phytosterols. Recent research has indicated that avocado oil may protect from DNA damaged due to sun overexposure. Stay tuned for more info as scientist wind their way through the FDA.
