The Goodness of Avocado- Not Just for Guacamole

Who doesn’t love guacamole? The creamy avocado makes the dish to die for. Not only is the green good stuff addictively delicious, but it's healthy fats and antioxidants make it great for your body. It seems like avocado has extra benefits for the skin. It fights aging, adds moisture, and gives the skin a yummy glow. You can obviously eat avocado to get the benefits for yourself. You can also apply the green fruit directly to your skin for a more direct effect. However, slathering your face in guacamole is not recommended.

Avocado Jasmine Soap

If the idea of putting food on your face doesn’t appeal to you, what about an all-natural soap with pureed avocado in it? You can still get the same benefits of an avocado face treatment without all the mess. The Avocado Soap with Jasmine Oil from Falls River Soap Company is a fantastic handmade soap. It captures the benefits of avocado by adding fresh, organic avocado puree to the cold-processed soap. It also adds a gorgeous color and a creamy texture for a luxurious face and body washing experience.

How the Skin Benefits from Avocado

Avocado oil contains more of the concentrated goodness of avocados. We’ve added it in addition to pureed avocado to really up the impact this amazing fruit has on your skin. The fatty acids it contains adds moisture to the inner layer of skin without being greasy. It can soothe dry, irritated, or even sunburnt skin. This is due to it’s healthy fats and antioxidants, like carotenoids (alpha carotene, beta carotene, beta cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin and lutein) and Vitamins B and C.  These awesome carotenoids help eliminate the signs of aging and may help protect the skin from UV rays. It’s biotin and B vitamin content helps build hydrated skin cells for glowing, smooth skin. Another perk for skin, especially dry or flaky skin, is that it’s a gentle exfoliator to help get rid of dead skin cells, all while depositing deep and lasting moisture.

Natural Soap as a Facial Cleanser

This soap sounds fantastic for the body, and it certainly is. But, it’s effects could really benefit the delicate skin on the face that is more prone to aging and irritation. You might be more skeptical of using avocado oil soap bar on your face. But fear not! There are other ways to use the soap besides rubbing a big, hard bar of soap directly on your face (which works just fine, by the way). Here are a few ideas to make the soap more face friendly:

  • Make a facial cleansing gel from the soap. Just finely grate some of the soap into a small mason jar and add drops of hot water to dissolve the soap until a gel is made. Use the avocado oil soap gel at night to maximize the anti-aging benefits. The gel should store in a cool, dry place for several days. 
  • Keep a small grater near the soap and grate a small amount into your hand. Rub the hands together to create a nice sud and apply to the face as a face wash.
  • Cut the bar of soap in half. Keep one half in the shower to be used on the body and cut the other half into sugar cube sized lumps. Use these smaller pieces and a wash cloth to clean the face.

Avocado Soap Made Better

A soap with just avocado would be great, but we’ve added a few extra ingredients to make this natural soap even better. Jasmine oil is one of our favorite ingredients. It’s a beautifully exotic flower with an intoxicating scent. It’s light and flowery without being overpowering. This scent can help you to relax and forget all your troubles. Plus, it has helped some people’s skin by treating dryness and fading scars and dark spots. Combined with the avocado, a good jasmine oil soap like ours has helped people to find younger-looking skin.

What would a great body and face soap be without a great moisturizer? Olive oil and coconut oils are the moisturizers of choice in our Avocado soap. We like olive oil in particular to complement the avocado. We figure if it was good enough for the ancient Romans to slather on their skin, then it was good enough for our soap. It’s a gentle natural oil that penetrates the skin for a deep clean. Since like attracts like, it clings to the oil and dirt in the pores and draws them out. Squalene, a hydrating antioxidant, is deposited to leave the skin soft.
