Avocado oil is highly popular among manufacturers of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals worldwide. What makes it so special is its optimal profile of oleic acids, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, precious vitamins and minerals.
Avocado oil for hair
Many producers of cosmetics and personal care products rely on the natural power of pure avocado oil in their shampoos, conditioners, hair treatments and hair masks. This oil contains a wealth of vitamins and minerals that visibly improve the structure of hair. Avocado oil is especially beneficial for dry skin, damaged hair and split ends.
The special combination of fatty acids allows the oil to reach the deepest layers of the hair structure, leaving the hair soft and supple.
Protection from environmental factors
Avocado oil encases the hair like a protective sheath, effectively preventing dehydration. This property is very important in winter and makes avocado oil especially popular as an ingredient in winter haircare products.
Vitamins for healthy hair
Vitamin B is particularly valuable in haircare. It prevents hair loss and even accelerates growth. Especially vitamin B, also called biotin, visibly boosts hair volume. It is indispensable in any haircare routine. Unfortunately, the human body cannot produce this vitamin by itself, so we must regularly receive it from external sources.
Vitamin C improves the elasticity of hair, gives it lustre and slows down the natural process of ageing.
Vitamin D prevents hair loss naturally.
Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant. It combats free radicals, supplies the cells with nutrients, and absorbs toxins within the hair structure.
Vitamin F is a complex of fatty acids that improves the health and appearance of hair.
Vitamin K nurtures the scalp and strengthens the follicles. There are only few vegetable oils that contain this precious vitamin.
Avocado oil, hydrated
The cold season brings icy winds and dry air from heating systems, both of which damage our hair. We are left with dry, dull tresses. Avocado oil helps regulate the moisture balance of our hair and keep it hydrated.
Avocado oil – refined or cold-pressed
The cosmetics industry primarily processes high-grade, cold-pressed avocado oil. Refined avocado oil can be used for quality haircare products also.
The refined product has a light colour, clear consistency and no odour. This makes it an ideal base oil for cosmetic formulas.
The cold-pressed, virgin oil has a dark yellow to brownish colour; it is slightly cloudy and has a fruity avocado scent. Gentle cold-pressing fully preserves the valuable substances contained in the oil.
