Vitamin packed!

Originally from central America, the avocado was considered sacred by the Aztecs. Present in Europe since the 16th century, it was nicknamed “the American Pear”. Exceptionally rich in vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and proteins, it is an almost perfectly balanced food. Over the years, it has also been used as a remedy for migraines, respiratory disorders, and skin diseases.


The softest of skin

In cosmetics, avocado unsaponifiables (the most precious part of the oil) promote skin regeneration and maintain its suppleness. Avocado peptides help increase the skin's firmness, while organic avocado oil softens the skin and makes it more supple.
