Originally from tropical America, the fruit of the Avocado tree was considered sacred by the Aztecs. Present in the South American Indian diet since the beginning of time, it was introduced to the Western world in the 16th century and nicknamed "the American Pear". Exceptionally rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and essential fatty acids, it is an almost perfectly balanced nutritional element. Over the years, it has also been used as a remedy for migraine, respiratory disorders and skin disease. Clarins Laboratories use the most precious part of its oil, the unsaponifiables of Avocado, for their moisturising, repairing and antioxidant qualities. Avocado oil is also remarkable for its ability to increase collagen synthesis.
