Avocado oil

Avocado oil
You may be more likely to think of avocado oil as a healthy food, rather than something that is beneficial for your skin.  Avocado oil is indeed a healthy food, but we will focus here on its benefits for the skin as part of the Palma de Salus hand sanitizing serum.


Benefits of avocado oil

The epidermis (outer layer of skin) easily absorbs the nutrients in avocado oil, including fatty acids, vitamin E, potassium, and lecithin. There are many ways that avocado oil is good for your skin, including:

  • Moisturizes dry skin

Avocado oil is a great moisturizer for the skin.  If you have dry skin, avocado oil can help improve its texture. 

  • Anti-inflammatory

If you have a skin condition that involves inflammation, avocado oil may help since it has natural anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties 

  • Anti-aging
Research has shown that putting avocado oil on your skin increases collagen synthesis/ production; this helps to make up for the decrease in our collagen production as we age. 
What is collagen?  Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It accounts for about 30% of its total protein. Collagen is the primary building block of your body’s skin, as well as muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments and other connective tissues.
  • Fights free radicals

Free radicals are associated with inflammation, which means that reducing free radicals and free radical damage is a wise goal.  Free radicals can contribute to disease, and also to many types of unwanted skin changes including age spots and wrinkles.  With its nutrients and antioxidants, avocado oil may help to reduce free radical damage, both when used externally and internally

  • Improves nail health
At the same time as you sanitize your hands with Palma de Salus hand sanitizing serum, you are helping to reduce nail breakage with the avocado oil it contains.
Clearly, there are many benefits due to the inclusion of avocado oil in Palma de Salus hand sanitizing serum.
