HOW TO USE IT

Use 1% to 100%. We recommend 10% for most cosmetic uses.

Avocado oil is oil-soluble and is not appropriate for use in water-only products. Small amounts can, however, be used in water-based gels, where the oil is held in suspension.

This oil is heat tolerant and can be used in the fat stage (stage 1) of creams and lotions, balms, body butters, soaps and more.

Avocado oil is thick and may begin to solidify if stored or used in cold temperatures. To return it to its liquid form, gently bring it back to room temperature.

If you prefer your avocado oil to be lighter and less thick, try blending it with EcoSilk or drier oils.
