Ingredient Spotlight: Avocado Oil
by Freya Drohan
No longer just your salad hero, avocado does wonders to give you good face. We already know it contains healthy monounsaturated fatty acids that are good for our bodies, but it also contains oleic acid, which works like a tall glass of water to hydrate your skin from the inside out. This beneficial fatty component is a bonafide skin savior, helping to improve the texture and appearance of your visage.
Acne? Blackheads? Say hello to our little friend antioxidant. Found in the humble avocado, vitamin E, a potent antioxidant, is an effective treatment for the aforementioned skin woes and other types of skin inflammation. Age spots? Wrinkles? Fine lines? Vitamin E is here for you through thick and thin.
Avocado oil is also more soothing than a bedtime lullaby. Thanks to beta carotene, proteins, and lecithin, the substance is also known to heal and replenish chapped, itchy, and dry skin.
If you’re looking to add a little green to your routine, our Hydrating Oil stick is packed with it (plus apricot, jojoba, and orange peel oils) to give you a healthy glow in one easy swipe. For face, body, and hair, Sunshine Oil uses the natural moisturizer (with the double whammy of grapeseed and grapefruit) to keep things hydrated and bright. On the makeup side, Lip + Cheek, Matte Bronzer, and Highlighter are all packed with the hydrator, so you can swipe on a wash of color and a dewy glow at the very same time.
