Avocado oil is a substance rich in omega-3 fatty acids, as well as the antioxidants vitamins A and E. It directly increases collagen for more supple skin. Avocado oil is also a natural way to boost levels of linoleic acid in the skin without resorting to harsh chemical peels or greasy man-made oils. Unlike other types of oils, this ingredient is made directly from the pulp of the fruit—not avocado seeds.
