Avocado – (Persea americana) Cold Pressed Vegetable Oil


BOTANICAL NAME: Persea americana

AROMATIC: Avocado oil has very little scent characteristic of most cold pressed vegetable oils but as with all untreated oils has a slightly fatty note.


COLOUR: Yellow/Green to Green/Brown depending upon the batch. Avocado may go cloudy in low temperatures but will return to normal.

CONSISTENCY: Typical but slightly thicker than most cold prressed vegetable oils.

ABSORPTION: Avocado will leave a sticky, waxy feel if applied topically to large areas of skin

SHELF LIFE: Avocado oil is slow to go rancid; users can expect a shelf life of 9 Months to well over 1 Year with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended.

Avocado contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E, and Beta carotene. It is classified as a monosaturated oil. It is best suited for dry skin conditions in topical applications.


A small amount of Avocado Oil is typically added to other vegetable oils in order to enrich protein and vitamin content. It is used predominantly by manufacturers (particularly great in soaps, lotions and creams) and massage therapists.
