Avocado Butter for Face and Skin Care
For many people, avocado butter is one of the secrets to beauty and healthy skin. There are many different things that you can do to help yourself feel better and look better, but using completely natural products is one of the best ways, because they can help you to look and feel your best, with a minimum of risk.
There are so many different spa and bath products out there that can do a similar job to that of avocado butter, so why use it rather than them? Why not use a synthetic equivalent that claims to be just as good for you? To answer that question, let's digress for a moment to the vitamin and supplement industry.
A natural and better alternative to vitamin and mineral supplements:
You can buy vitamins, minerals and various supplements in various forms from a wide variety of health food stores. However, what the experts agree on practically unanimously is that vitamins and minerals taken in supplement form are not as effective as those taken naturally in the diet. Why is this?
One reason is that many substances work best when in the presence of others, producing what is known as a synergistic effect; they work better together than each would separately. This synergy is not always present in supplements.
Additionally, and probably even more importantly, many vitamins and minerals that are manufactured synthetically, are available in a different form than those occurring naturally. This alternate form is often not so easily assimilated into the body.
The Secret Skincare Ingredients of Avocado Butter:
So what has this to do with avocado butter? This natural extract of avocado is rich in vitamins A, D, and E, unsaturated fatty acids, and lecithin, all of which are beneficial to your general health and that of your skin. Synthetic equivalents cannot possibly contain the same components in a natural form, nor be as easily used by the body as their pure, natural counterparts found in the avocado plant.
Hence, although synthetic skin care products can benefit your skin, they cannot do so as effectively and gently as natural substances such as avocado butter. This is why it is the prime ingredient in our Avocado Eyes Anti-Aging Eye Cream.The butter itself is produced from the flesh of the fruit, not from the extracted oil. The flesh is hydrogenated in the same way that vegetable oils are hydrogenated to produce margarine.
We actually make our own Avocado butter using an added shea to enhance the Castle Baths Avocado products. We beleive this superfood is a MUST for skincare of all skin types.
The melting point is 30C - 35C, which is only a few degrees below the natural temperature of the human body. Thus, it melts easily on application, which render it very easy to rub into your skin. It is excellent for dry, peeling, and cracked skin, and is also said to help to reduce the appearance of age spots on the skin. It is frequently added to sun lotions since it can help to protect the skin from the effect of UV radiation in the sun's rays. This quality is likely due to the antioxidant effects of Vitamins A and E, as well as avocado's emollient effect on your skin.
So treat yourself, and pamper yourself with a lavish application of avocado butter on your skin to make it feel silky and smooth, and help to protect yourself from the effects of aging and environmental pollution.
