ingredient spotlight: avocado

When I think AVOCADOS, I think LOCAL.
Did you know 95% of all avocados grown in the USA come from California?! Carpinteria, California is a laid back beach town just South of Santa Barbara, where we recently opened The Grapeseed Co. store #2 and warehouse. We have been loving it here for many reasons, including that it is chock full of avocado groves and happens to be home to the wonderful California Avocado Festival each fall! Avocados are an amazing fruit loaded with omegas and vitamins, native to our area. The Grapeseed Company incorporates local ingredients in all of our formulas, and one of our most recent additions to make your skin healthy and happy is the AVOCADO! Here's why it's great for your skin...
botanical name: (or how we are required by FDA to list "avocado"on the label)   
Persea Gratissima oil
botanical benefits in skin care:
Avocados are a superfood that are sometimes known as "fruit with fat" because they're so meaty and moisturizing. Avocados are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin e which makes them an excellent anti~aging ingredient. Avocado oil easily penetrates and absorbs into the skin. It has a reputation of helping psoriasis and eczema, as well as acneic, mature and aging skin conditions... which means (like grapeseed oil) it's great for just about any skin type.
