Organic Avocado Oil [Unrefined]
This beautiful, Unrefined Organic Avocado Oil, is nutrient rich, and deeply moisturising.
Clinical studies have revealed that Organic Avocado Oil possesses wound healing capabilities, and has the potential to be anti-inflammatory.
*If wounds are kept out of direct sunlight, the scarring that occurs will be lighter in colour.
In addition, Organic Avocado Oil is antioxidant and emollient, helping to detox our skin and reduce oxidative damage, whilst also helping to maintain its youthful appearance and texture. The fungicidal and antibacterial properties of Organic Avocado Oil help to support dermal immune function.
Organic Avocado Oil also helps our skin to remain hydrated, again reducing signs of ageing.
It also reduces dry and flaking skin when used to condition hair and scalp.
Organic Avocado Oil Nutrient Profile
Organic Avocado Oil contains all of the following:
- Oleic Acid (Omega 9) :: c. 46%
- Palmitic Acid (Omega 7) c. 25%
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B3 (niacin)
- B2 (riboflavin)
- Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B9 (folate/folic acid)
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin K
Vitamin B3 is especially important for dermal health, and is recognised as an anti-ageing agent.
Cold Pressed Organic Avocado Oil is very high in Oleic Acid, which makes it very moisturising. However, the Oleic Acid content is also one of the key reasons this oil has quite a high comedogenic rating of 3.
*Comedogenic ratings relate to how well an oil is absorbed during topical application, and how likely it is to clog pores. A comedogenic vale of 0 is the least likely to clog pores, whereas oils with the highest comedogenic rating of 5, are the most likely to cause blockages and subsequent breakouts.
However, because Cold Pressed Organic Avocado Oil is so anti-inflammatory, this means that it can be used where other oils with this comedogenic rating must be avoided.

It is always advisable to perform a patch test on the soft skin on the inside of your forearm before using carrier oils on your face.
Perform A Patch Test
Place a drop or two of Wild As The Wind oil on your inner forearm, making sure to massage it well into your skin.
A severe reaction will occur within ten minutes, but it may take 24 hours for milder intolerances to emerge.
Look for signs of Urticaria, (aka Hives), discolouration, redness, dryness, or feelings of irritation / itchiness.
If you experience none of these, you will be safe to use your Wild As The Wind oil elsewhere on your body, including your face.
