About Avocado Fruit Extract
Avocado oil is rich in Vitamin E, potassium, lecithin, and many other nutrients that can nourish and moisturize the skin. The antioxidants and vitamins in avocado oil may help to heal the dry, irritated, and flaky skin. When left on for short periods of time and rinsed off with warm water, avocado oil can keep skin hydrated without leaving an oily residue. This may reduce the risk of acne. Avocado oil also has anti-inflammatory effects, which can help to reduce the redness and inflammation associated with acne (1).
Avocado oil may help wounds to heal more quickly. One 2013 study found that the essential fatty acids and oleic acid in avocado oil can promote collagen synthesis, which is the process of creating new connective tissue and restoring skin (2).
Essential fatty acids in avocado oil were also found to help reduce inflammation and promote the healing process. However more studies are needed in humans, however, to determine whether avocado oil can be used to treat wounds.
The antioxidants in avocado oil may help to ease the symptoms of a sunburn and irritated skin. According to a 2011 review, the vitamins and essential fatty acids in the oil can support healing and soothing the skin (3, 4)
