Avocado: a source of nutrients for your skin and hair!

Avocado is a source of benefits for your skin and hair and we wish to tell you about all its properties, so you can enjoy this wonderful fruit at its best. Do you know where to find it?

The origins of avocado 

The origin of avocado takes place in the cloudy forests of Mesoamerica, where it's also called Persea and has 90 different species spread throughout Mexico and Central America. The fruit of avocado comes from one of the oldest flowering plants from the Lauraceae family and is produced mainly in tropical or Mediterranean climates.

Avocado properties

Some of the most outstanding properties of avocado are its healthy monounsaturated fats. Avocado is also a rich source of vitamin E that protects the membrane of our cells, making it ideal for protecting skin from free radicals. It also contains minerals and vitamins, such as vitamin C that act as an antioxidant, vitamin A with anti-acne properties, and a variety of minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, copper and zinc.

A source of nutrients for your skin

Avocado is found in cosmetic products for its great skin benefits. Oleic acid hydrates the skin, preventing wrinkles and expression lines. In addition, vitamin C and E combat the free radicals caused by oxidative damage, and treat the skin after exposure to UV, UVA and UVB rays. Vitamin A and linoleic acid has an anti-acne effect, treating imperfections, irritations, inflammations and redness. Avocado oil has a high content of vitamin B12, great for treating psoriasis that can present as eczema, redness or scabs on certain parts of body and face.


The perfect revitaliser for your hair 

The plant-derived fats and water contained in avocado deeply moisturise the hair, avoiding it from drying out and repairing even the most damaged areas. Vitamin E stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss. Avocado is also ideal for protecting hair from the heat and ending frizz. For all these reasons, it is one of the top ingredients in hair masks and serums.
