In the know

If you harbour dreams of being a mixtress like me then it would help if you knew what each of the ingredients is best used for, how it is helpful and how it reacts with other ingredients.

First up Avocado Butter

Our pure avocado butter is expeller crushed from the fresh flesh of the avocado fruit and then hydrogenated to yield a soft greenish butter. This is a much softer butter than any of the other butters we carry. Avocado butter is a very rich, moisturizing treatment for the hair and skin, and it has some natural sunscreen properties. Use it in soap and skin care formulations at 5 – 20%. Use smaller amounts of avocado butter in lotion bars. This butter can be a little heavy and greasy, but it is definitely worth it in small amounts

 Benefits of Avocado Butter

  • Moisturizes
  • Good penetrating properties
  • Excellent spreadability
  • Some natural sunscreen ability
  • Low comedogenicity
