Sub-Tropical Gem : What's In It? Series

Avocado Butter- INCI: Persea Gratissima

So we know that avocados are good to make a dip for chips, but those green gems aren't just for your belly, your skin wants in on the love.

Avocado Butter is obtained from the fruit of the Avocado tree which grows in sub-tropical regions of the world. Our avocado butter is made with pure avocado oil, that is expeller crushed from the fresh flesh of the avocado fruit.  This is truly a superior skin care product.

Why We Use It & Why You Should Be Using It:

  • It contains the antioxidant vitamins A, E and D that kill of the free radicals that age your skin. Not only will vitamin E fight free radicals, but it will also fade dark spots/age spots.  
  • A great emollient for dry and damaged skin.  Remember an emollient seals in moisture, so use it after showering/bathing, and on wet, clean hair.
  • A sunscreen by nature.  Hmmm, seems as though we offer several products with that attribute. Natural sunscreens are definitely needed for those with an increase of melanin in their skin. 

Avocado Butter can be found in our Lush Body Butter and in DECADENCE Chocolate Truffle Layered Sugar Scrub.
