Avocado Oil from Soapers Choice

Avocado Oil

For soap making, we recommend avocado oil. Avocado Oil is rich in Vitamin A, B1, B2, D, and E as well as amino acids, sterols, pantothenic acid, lecithin, and other essential fatty acids. Avocado Oil is great for those with skin ailments such as eczema, psoriasis, and other skin problems.

Avocado FlowerAvocado oil is a relatively thick and rich oil that may be diluted with other carrier oils to improve its consistency. Avocado oil is for people with sensitive or problem skin as well as other irritations that require vitamin rich oil.

Even though the Avocado is officially a vegetable oil, it is really a fruit because it has a stone. It can yield as much as 30% oil. Avocado oil penetrates into the deep skin tissue, nourishing, enriching and revitalizing the skin.

Since avocado oil easily absorbs into deep tissue with its wonderful emollient properties, it is ideal for mature skins as well as helping to relieve the dryness and itching of psoriasis, eczema and other skin ailments.The crude Avocado oil is green in color as it still contains chlorophyll thus it is classified as a mono-unsaturated oil. 

Avocado OilThroughout history avocado oil has been renowned to have healing and regenerating properties. It is very useful when treating sun, climate or chemical damaged skin that is dehydrated and undernourished. It is reported to help regenerate and rejuvenate the skin as well as soften the skin tissue. Avocado oil is well known as a nutrient for penetrating dry skin and resolving other skin problems.

Since avocado Oil has a high percentage of unsaponifiables, it an excellent oil to use in soap making.
