Description: Refined Avocado Oil is great to use in skincare products, creams, soaps, hair care products, and more. Avocado Oil Refined is very commonly used in anti-aging products and cosmetics. This Avocado oil is refined so it is best for use in cosmetics and skincare, and direct skin applications. It is light green in color and has no scent, which makes it useful when creating or making your own products where you may want a low-no scent carrier oil. Virgin Avocado oil, on the other hand, is darker green and has a distinct scent and may color formulations with its natural green pigments, the Virgin Avocado oil (being of food processed origin) also may contain natural virgin sediments which may not be ideal for all applications.
Sourcing note: The Australian domestic demand for Australian grown Avocado has exploded in recent years, coupled with low crop yields and drought for our Aussie Avocado farmers. This has put serious pressure on growers to sell all their fruit for food and culinary/food uses to achieve the highest prices, resulting in little to no Australian Avocado fruits being available for Avocado oil production right now.
