Nectar of the alligator pear
Cold-pressed avocado oil is beneficial for dry, dull, sensitive, or wrinkled skin; as it promotes its rejuvenation while repairing and increasing elasticity.
The avocado, or Persea Americana, is a creamy, velvety berry considered a delicacy and an aphrodisiac. It is native to Central America, more specifically, what is now Mexico. It can be tracked around 10,000 B.C. Evidence suggests that they were cultivated as a food source since approximately 5,000 B.C. by Mesoamerican people, including Maya, Olmec, and the Mokaya. Depending on its variety, the thickness of its skin can vary, with some even being edible. This fruit was once called an alligator pear due to its outer layer’s green color and appearance.
The anti-inflammatory properties of avocado oil are endorsed by the rich presence of phytonutrients like polyphenols and flavonoids. Avocado oil is packed with potassium, vitamins A, D, and E, which act as antioxidants while also having unsaturated fatty acids, including Omega-3. In addition to other nutrients, sterolin’s presence ensures deeper penetration into the skin surface, enabling moisturizing, rejuvenation, and repairing the skin.

Ayurvedic Ancient Wisdom
In Hindi, it’s known as Makhanphal, and it’s commonly used in Ayurveda as oil as a skin tonic. Cold-pressed avocado oil is especially suitable for Vata skin, which tends to be dry, dull, or wrinkled. Rasayana (the Ayurvedic anti-aging process based on rejuvenation and revitalization) is meant to increase Kapha Dosha, promoting moisturized and smooth skin. Since avocado oil has a bitter nature, it is used for Pitta skin since it can be sensitive. The oil’s bitter profile helps to purify the skin while improving its immunity against various skin conditions.
