Avocado butter is obtained by cold pressing the fresh flesh of the fruit of the avocado tree. The oil is then blended with hydrogenated vegetable oil to modify the rheology (flow) and create a butter which is soft and pliable.
Being high in natural fats and melting easily on the skin, avocado butter is an ideal ingredient for use in formulations for dry skin. This ingredient is quite versatile, and is great for use on the face, body, lips, and even the hair. It can be included in formulations or used on its own to moisturize the skin and hair.
