Vitis Vinifera (As If We Needed Another Reason to Love Wine!)

Grapeseed Oil or "Vitis Vinifera" is one of the many organic ingredients found in our Nourishing Face Oil

Grapeseed oil comes from (you guessed it) the pressed seeds of grapes. When wine is produced, the seeds are removed, so Grapeseed oil is a wonderfully efficient and sustainable use of a byproduct.

Grapeseed Oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties, and is naturally rich in vitamin E and omega-6 fatty acids. These help battle skin-damaging free radicals and are necessary for good skin functioning and appearance. ⠀

The main omega-6 in grapeseed oil is linoleic acid which also helps to reduce inflammation in the skin's middle and outer layers. ⠀

Who knew grapes were so powerful? 🍇🍇🍇⠀

You can't make everybody happy... you're not an avocado!

You can't make everybody happy... you're not an avocado!
There's a reason sayings like this exist! Avocado is a beloved fruit for so many reasons from guacamole, to toast, to yes, skincare... If you don’t know by now, Avocado Oil is our hero ingredient in our Nourishing Face Oil. 🥑⠀

Avocado oil is derived from the fruit of the avocado, not its seed. That's just one of the reasons why it has so many beneficial properties. ⠀

Many clinical studies have shown that avocado oil has powerful skin-repairing qualities such as increasing collagen synthesis and reducing inflammation. The oil is also rich in linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and oleic acid which penetrate the skin's barrier helping it to retain moisture, while also reducing irritation and redness. ⠀

It can also improve skin texture and appearance as the oil contains beta-sitosterol, lecithin, minerals, and vitamins A, C, D, and E! ⠀

We like to say that avocado is as good for you on the outside as it is on the inside! 🥑🥑

Never Say Natural

One of the unexpected challenges we face, at Avoila, is that some words seem to be losing all meaning. Words like “natural” and “green” for example. The business world seems determined to make them meaningless. But, I do think there’s a way that we as consumers can avoid getting tripped up by these words.
