Avalin, is 100% pure and free of chemical additives and therefore suitable for any use in baby and child skin care.
Avocado Oil for your skin
Given its emollient properties, avocado oil is ideal for dry, damaged and dehydrated skin and generally acts well for the rejuvenation of the skin. It is one of the most deeply penetrating oils, as it is rich in a type of steroid called sterolin. Once applied, it is quickly absorbed by the skin, thus making it an ideal moisturizer and skin care agent. The unique power of sterolins can be also used in treating age spots. Avocado oil can help reduce the chances of wrinkles, and subsequently aging. This is because it contains certain anti-oxidant agents that help boost the production of collagen in the top layer of the skin. Collagen increases skin strength and elasticity. With its high levels of vitamins A and E, it may reduce itching and inflammation of the skin and is also beneficial in softening rough and cracked skin in addition to helping soothe sunburned skin. This oil protects the skin against any form of infection as avocado sugars produce an antimicrobial layer over the skin. It is therefore effective in relieving the dryness and itching associated with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. It is also effective in accelerating the healing process in small cuts and bruises. The level of its UV protection (about an SPF of 6-8) needs to be mentioned too. Coupled with the high vitamin and sterolin content, it's definitely helpful for preventing sun damage.
Avocado Oil for your hair and scalp
Avocado oil can also boost scalp health. One of its most important benefits is its use in hair care. Its texture is quite light which enables it to get easily soaked onto the skin and scalp. It can be used for head massages, and as a hot oil treatment for the hair, since avocado oil can actually be absorbed by dry hair shafts. As well as helping clear scaly skin, it can also relieve itchy scalp symptoms. Using avocado oil for the hair can help with different hair related problems like dandruff, thinning hair, and hair fall. It has a number of nutrients that can benefit the growth and the health of all kinds of hair. It contains essential nutrients like proteins, vitamins A, D, E and B6, magnesium, copper, iron, amino acids and folic acid, all of which is extremely essential for hair growth and nourishment. It is also known to have natural sunscreen properties that can protect the hair and scalp from the damage caused by the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. Avocado oil, when regularly applied to the scalp, has been found to actually stimulate hair growth.
