Avocado oil (Persea americana) has a deep olive green color and a somewhat sweet, fatty and nutty aroma. Although it is very penetrating, it can leave a fatty, somewhat waxy feel on the skin. The texture is thick and heavy and it may be overpowering if used alone, so make it part of a blend, usually about 10%. Avocado oil is a very long-lasting oil.
Avocado oil contains Vitamins D, E, A, B1, B2 and pantothenic acid. It is also a source of protein, lecithin and fatty acids.
