Nourishing and hydrating
Rich and nourishing, organic avocado butter comes from the flesh of avocados grown without chemicals or pesticides. Avocados are packed with essential unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins A, B, C and E, proteins, lecithin and potassium and help to condition and moisturise the skin and hair.
Avocadoes (Persea gratissima, Persea americana) are the fruit of a subtropical tree, native to Mexico and South America. The tree is a member of the Laurel (Lauraceae) family and there are approximately 500 varieties, which produce fruits ranging from small and egg-like to heavy, pear-shaped fruits.
The name avocado is derived from the Mexican name 'ahuacatl', a shortening of the Aztec name 'ahuacacuahatl'. The Aztecs believed the avocado had aphrodisiac qualities because of its shape.
