Our Green Gold: Organic avocado oil

We love using avocado oil as the base oil for so many products in our range. In fact, we even have a nickname for it: 'Green gold' because of its amazing skincare properties.

Avocado oil is incredibly nutrient-rich, and one of the most deeply penetrating oils. It's wonderful for hydrating and moisturising the skin, helping to plump out fine lines and increase collagen production. It’s also used to help address sun damage, as well as burns, wounds and skin diseases including eczema and psoriasis.

Here’s how it works: avocado oil is rich in antioxidants such as vitamins A, B, C, D E and K, and floods the skin with moisture. This helps relieve dry skin, making it beautifully dewy and supple.

Avocado oil also contains a substance called sterolin, a natural steroid that triggers the production of collagen which is essential in protecting the skin from wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.

Thanks to high levels of plant compounds called phytosterols, avocado oil has a huge role to play in rejuvenating tired and stressed skin. Polyhydroxylated fatty alcohols in avocado oil have also been shown to reduce inflamed and sun damaged skin. What’s more, a component present in avocado oil called lutein absorbs and filters UV light, offering protection from further sun damage.

And because avocado oil helps to balance and regulate your skin's natural sebum production, it’s effective for both oily and dry sensitive skin conditions.

We use avocado oil in a number of our award-winning skincare products, including Hallelujah Lime & Patchouli Cleanser, Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser, Divine Face Oil: Organic Avocado Oil & Rosehip and Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream.

Avocado oil is one of the most deeply penetrating oils which makes it great for hydrating and moisturising your skin. We call it 'Green Gold' for skin!
