Avocado Oil Benefits
Avocado oil is known to stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin, and is especially useful for mature, aging, and very dry (lacking oil) skin.
Because Avocado oil is high in sterolins (also called plant steroids) softens the skin and imparts a superior moisturizing effect, making it an ideal ingredient for dehydrated and climate damaged skin, which helps nourish and rejuvenate the skin.
