Extra Virgin Avocado Oil has become a popular ingredient used in personal-care products such as face masks, lotions, creams, and topical moisturizing for its emollient properties, Vitamin E content, and oleic fatty acid composition. In addition to cosmetic applications, it is also used throughout food manufacturing due to its high smoke point of over 400° F. It's a heart-healthy oil, high in oleic acid, which is unsaturated fat. It also helps the body absorb other fat-soluble vitamins. Extra Virgin Avocado Oil is a good source of monounsaturated fat which has been linked to reducing LDL cholesterol and increasing HDL cholesterol.
