THRIFTY THURSDAY – awesome avocado

Posted on

Like most natural oils, Avocado oil has a structure close to human sebum. It therefore allows the skin to breathe, and to balance itself better than chemical ingredients or synthetic oils.

Avocado oil is a full bodied, light green oil, rich in nutritive and conditioning components Vit A, B1, B2, D and E. It also contains carotene, phytosterols, lecithin, linoleic and oleic acids, and potassium…the so-called youth mineral. It penetrates deeply, improving elasticity by increasing the amount of collagen in the skin. Its superior moisturising effects come from the plant steroids, hence it is useful for dry, dull and mature skin.

In addition, this ‘magic oil’ helps heal scars, minimise spots, eliminate enlargd pores and reduce the effects of sun exposure.

As the oil is found in th fatty pulp, you can actually just rub some fresh avocad on your skin and use as a rejuvenating mask, or use the oil as a rich moisturiser.

If this is not your cup of tea, try Rubifresh Detoxifying Body Scrub with avocado oil. Available at for $42 for a 260g jar. It will cleanse and detoxify your skin and your body, while ‘giving back’ with rich avoacdo oil to nourish and rejuvenate.
