Description: Avocado cosmetic grade oil is obtained from the seeds of the Avocado tree (Persea gratissima) by cold pressing, refining, and standardizing with non-GMO vegetable oils to enhance their oxidation stability. The refining and standardization process helps remove undesirable aroma and color, and helps to enhance the shelf life of the oil. This renders the product suitable for formulating products in the cosmetic industry without interference from odor and color.
Color: Pale yellow to golden yellow liquid.
Aromatic Description: Avocado Carrier Oil has very little scent characteristic of most carrier oils.
Common Uses: Avocado Oil is typically added to other carrier oils in order to enrich protein and vitamin content. It is used predominantly by manufacturers (particularly great in soaps, lotions and creams) and massage therapists.
