Why would you use Avocado Oil on your skin as a moisturiser?Updated 2 years ago

Avocado oil makes the perfect all-natural moisturiser. It is packed with vitamin E, oleic acid and phytosterols. The oil itself can penetrate into the second layer of the skin (the dermis) and provide moisture support. Avocado oil which has been cold-pressed and avoids hexane or other chemicals is the perfect oil for moisturising. Cosmetic grade oil is a lower quality oil and may have been extracted using a chemical solvent (usually hexane) - however, is often a lot more expensive due to the way it is marketed!
