Avocado Butter exhibits excellent penetrating qualities and good spreadability on the skin, making it ideal as a massage butter or carrier for treatment products. Avocado Butter adds moisturizing attributes to creams, lotions and bar soaps and exhibits low comedogenicity on the skin. Avocado Butter is obtained from the fruit of the Avocado tree (Persea Gratissima) which grows in sub-tropical regions of the world. The butter is created by blending the Avocado fruit oil with hydrogenated vegetable oils to produce a soft, greenish butter with mild odor and excellent melting properties suitable for skin care. May be used in all types of soap and toiletries to improved moisturization and soften rough, dry skin.
