Avocado Oil, Cold Pressed, UNREFINED 
CAS No. 8024-32-6

For those of you who've asked for it, we're offering a lovely unrefined, cold pressed Avocado Oil from France.

Avocado grows in tropical and subtropical countries between 40°N and 40°S, particularly California, Florida, Israel, New Zealand and South Africa. Like the olive and palm, the lipids are concentrated in the fruit pulp, from which it can be pressed.  Our newest Avocado Oil Unrefined is cold-pressed from the fruit of the Persea gratissima (avocado).  After pressing, the oil is extracted via centrifuge.  It it unrefined, leaving it with a dark green color with the subtle aroma of avocado. 

Avocado is rich in unsaponifiables and contains more than 85% mono-unsaturated fatty acids, and 2 to 11% unsaponifiable matter composed of sterols, including beta-sitosterol, campesterol and avenasterol and hydrocarbons including squalene, and alcohols. 

With excellent penetrating qualities and good spreadability on the skin, it adds moisturizing benefits to creams, lotions and bar soaps.  Additionally, it exhibits low comedogenicity on the skin, making it an exceptional oil for facial products. 

Our Avocado Oil Unrefined is packed under a layer of inert argon gas to protect it from oxidation until you open and use it.  Nevertheless, we recommend refrigeration for this one, whether opened or not, for long term storage.

This product is produced exclusively in France for cosmetic use.  It is a lovely oil for external use only.  It is not sold or intended for consumption.

Our Customers Say...
I have never been so moved to show appreciation as i am right now. i can't believe my order was so speedy; and with just the standard shipping too! i received it within 5d on the dot to Canada using USPS.

And if the service wasn't enough i must say i am completely in love with everything i ordered. I couldn't imagine the Shea Nilotica being much different from the standard shea you can get everywhere else but it's like night and day! i can't even look at my remaining shea anymore because it pales in comparison. the Shea Nilotica is so silky, never gets clumpy or grainy and goes on so smooth it felt like a spa treatment. My other favourite is the SheaAloe which at first seemed like a miss; i was expecting a thicker, more creamy feel but it's quite thin. What surprises me about it though is that even though it does not go on thick, it is incredibly incredibly moisturizing and is very readily absorbed into my thick african hair.

i'll be ordering more of the Shea Nilotica (the 5gallon bucket this time) and likely some product continers as well. Thank you once again for being awesome.

Fastest and nicest service ever. Ordered the Shea nilotica yesterday and Jen wasn't kidding. This is some luxurious shea. Very rich and creamy, not grainy at all and hardly a scent compared to others I've used. Impressed that the delivery made it in a day and of the care and time taken to change and fix my order....the morning of! The measuring tools were just a bonus for a professional first purchase experience, thank you so much.

Amazing! I ordered my items a week ago and got the items delivered to the UK on time. I wish your website stock a wide range of facial peels. I am a customer for life because you make shopping online so easy. Keep up the good work. I love your ultra fine L-ascorbic acid and use it every day in my creams.

Just wanted to say "Thank You" your customer service ROCKS IT!. I ordered a few things, and they were delivered two days later they shipped the day I placed my order. Then today I get a notification that you gave me a credit for postage. WOW, really? That never happens. Thank you for such integrity and excellent customer service.

Regards,
Deb
