Avocado butter is a nourishing butter that is rich in unsaturated fatty acid content. It is especially high in oleic acid (Omega-9), linoleic acid (Omega-6), palmitoleic acid, potassium, and vitamins A, B1, D & E.
It has an excellent hydrating effect and penetrates well into the skin due to the high amount of oleic acid, making it a fantastic ingredient in maintaining youthful appearance. It is commonly used in many cosmetic skin and body care products, including bath lotions, skin moisturizers, creams & soaps. Avocado butter is best suited for rough, flaky, and dry skin.

When adding butter to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle your melted butter to incorporate fully. In addition to soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound or 15 g/k. As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab-scale batches before commercial manufacturing.
Recommended Storage: Please note that this butter should ideally be stored in a refrigerator to maintain its texture. It will become soft in warmer temperatures.
