Yes yes.. we know… quac is extra! But keep on reading and once you find out how amazing those avocados are, you won’t even mind!
Avocado oil is literally packed with vitamins. It contains Vitamin E, C, K1, B5, B6 and E and it is also rich in antioxidants like chlorophyl, carotenoids, folate, potassium, healthy omega 9 and trace minerals. And while the oil is best known for cooking, it is extremely beneficial for the skin. And the best part is that it is suitable for anyone with sensitive skin.
So what does this mean for the ultra sensitive baby skin?
Most importantly- it nourishes and moisturizes. Its nutrients and vitamins are easily absorbed by the epidermis (skin’s top layer) and it will keep your little one’s skin soft and ready for kisses.
Since avocado oil is full of anti-oxidants and vitamins, it is extremely effective for very dry and itchy skin and provides relief that won’t irritate. Research shows that it is very potent to reduce Eczema symptoms. It also has healing properties due to the fact that is anti inflammatory and it can speed up the wound healing process.
There is a study conducted in 2013 that shows that in just two weeks a significant increase was observed in percentage wound contraction and re-epithelialization in the group treated with Avocado oil. Pretty amazing right? And avocado oil participates in collagen synthesis meaning it enhances the cell turnover and boosts collagen production (Tip for Mom- avocado face masks!)
Having in mind how potent and incredible Avocado oil is, you now understand why we chose it as the main ingredient for our HoneyB Body Wash! We believe your baby’s skin deserves the best and that is exactly what is in that bottle!
