In our continuous effort to share the stories behind the ingredients I've meticulously selected for our lipsticks, we embark on a weekly series this October. Every Monday, we'll delve deep into the history, benefits, and magic of an individual ingredient.
Today, we tune into the harmonious notes of Avocado Oil.
Avocado Oil: The Unsung Hero Historically treasured by ancient civilizations, the creamy pulp of the avocado has been renowned for centuries for its nourishing properties. The Aztecs, back in the 13th century, revered avocado as a natural moisturizer. Nestled in the heart of South Central Mexico, where the avocado tree first blossomed, this fruit was more than a dietary delight—it symbolized love and fertility.
From a scientific perspective, Avocado Oil is a goldmine for skincare. Rich in oleic acid, a fatty acid that deeply moisturizes the lips, it also enhances skin elasticity and combats the signs of aging. Thanks to its high antioxidant content, it acts as a natural shield against harmful UV rays, vital for the delicate skin of our lips.
The blend of beta carotene, protein, and vitamins A, D, and E in Avocado Oil not only heals but also prevents chapped lips, offering an all-rounded care.
But what truly elevates the Avocado Oil in Madame Gabriela's lipsticks is its pure, organic sourcing. We've ensured that every drop comes from suppliers who uphold the highest standards of clarity and natural extraction, ensuring unmatched quality.
As we journey deeper into the core of our lipstick formula in the coming weeks, there's a beautiful revelation awaiting. Each ingredient, as powerful as it is individually, harmonizes perfectly with others. Avocado Oil, with its hydration properties, sings in unison with the likes of Manuka Honey and Shea Butter, crafting a blend where every element amplifies the other, creating a symphony of beauty and health.
Next week, join me as we traverse the lush landscapes of West Africa, immersing ourselves in the creamy allure of Shea Butter.
Until then, embrace the natural luxury and pure essence of Avocado Oil with every swipe of Madame Gabriela.
