Avocado Oil Expressed
PERSEA GRATISSIMA OIL
Spain / Israel / South Africa
Certified Organic Unrefined Oil of Avocado is produced via mechanical extraction and an additonal process of removing the stones (seeds) and skin of the fruit. The remaining flesh is churned for up to 1 hour at high temperature (max 50c) which is similar to the process for Olive Oil. This helps the Avocado Oil extraction without harming the product. Oil is then seperated from the water by high speed centrifuge. Any waste pulp or skins are not wasted since they can be used as animal feedstock, or as mulch to fertilise the orchards later.
Certified Organic Expressed and Unrefined Avocado Oil has a lovely dark green colour with a high Avocado pulp content and is rich in essential fatty acids, beta carotene and vitamin E. A good treatment for dry and mature skin. Very popular in Cold Process Soap and high end skin creams.
