The avocado tree is native to Mexico and the southern USA. Central America is still the world’s largest supplier, delivering a third of the annual crop. Over the course of the years, the avocado tree, which grows to heights between 4 and 20 metres, has been around a lot: today, it can also be found in South America, Israel, and almost the entire Mediterranean region. The perennial green tree produces fruit weighing between 500 g and 2.5 kg, depending on the variety. Avocados are still unripe when they fall from the tree – the ripening process takes place on the ground. Growers harvest as soon as the fruit are at a marketable size. Avocado oil has long since been known as a miracle oil in the cosmetics industry. It is used in a wide variety of products. Thanks to its particularly high Vitamin E content, it rejuvenates and softens the skin and alleviates impurities. Especially in the summer, avocado oil is very popular by merit of its natural light protection factor. It has a regenerative effect on cells and functions as a mild analgesic. The oil is particularly easily absorbed by the skin and soothes chapped, scaly, and dry skin, which makes it a popular base oil for ointments. Avocado oil also serves as a frequent basis for haircare products thanks to its moisturising, strengthening capacities. It has a supportive effect for the treatment of neurodermatitis, psoriasis, and tissue damage. Besides its cosmetics uses, avocado oil is becoming increasingly popular in cooking. It is a good alternative to olive oil. This very flavoursome cooking oil is perfect for salads and vegetable dishes. Thanks to its high heat resistance, it can also be used for frying without losing its taste or effects. Additionally, avocado oil is excellent for marinating meat or fish. And as a further bonus, it has positive effects on the treatment of excessive cholesterol. Together with our partners at the source, we have secured adequate volumes and can supply our high-quality avocado oil to you whenever you require.
