Avocado Oil, Cold Pressed, UNREFINED 
CAS No. 8024-32-6

For those of you who've asked for it, we're offering a lovely unrefined, cold pressed Avocado Oil from France.

Avocado grows in tropical and subtropical countries between 40°N and 40°S, particularly California, Florida, Israel, New Zealand and South Africa. Like the olive and palm, the lipids are concentrated in the fruit pulp, from which it can be pressed.  Our newest Avocado Oil Unrefined is cold-pressed from the fruit of the Persea gratissima (avocado).  After pressing, the oil is extracted via centrifuge.  It it unrefined, leaving it with a dark green color with the subtle aroma of avocado. 

Avocado is rich in unsaponifiables and contains more than 85% mono-unsaturated fatty acids, and 2 to 11% unsaponifiable matter composed of sterols, including beta-sitosterol, campesterol and avenasterol and hydrocarbons including squalene, and alcohols. 

With excellent penetrating qualities and good spreadability on the skin, it adds moisturizing benefits to creams, lotions and bar soaps.  Additionally, it exhibits low comedogenicity on the skin, making it an exceptional oil for facial products. 

Our Avocado Oil Unrefined is packed under a layer of inert argon gas to protect it from oxidation until you open and use it.  Nevertheless, we recommend refrigeration for this one, whether opened or not, for long term storage.

This product is produced exclusively in France for cosmetic use.  It is a lovely oil for external use only.  It is not sold or intended for consumption.

Love the customer service fast shipping. And the prices are amazing. It's great to be able to customize your own product and have a true understanding of the ingredients.

To be late sometimes is expected. Things happen in business. I probably wouldn't do a review in that case. A company that was always extremely late, I'd probably do a negative review on. This is just the opposite...they are more often than not...even faster than I expect. They also cater to those who seek more natural formulations.
Denise Herbert

Amazed at how quickly my goodies arrived! Thank you for taking the time to figure out the cheapest shipping and refunding the amount I originally paid for shipping. Amazing!
