Avocado oil nourishes and restores dry, dehydrated, and mature skin. This is a rich, heavy oil that is best blended with other carrier oils. Skin problems, especially eczema and psoriasis, respond to its high content of vitamins A and E. Avocado oil is added to carrier oils in a 10%-20% dilution as an aid to skin moisturizing.
This is a highly therapeutic oil which is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, vitamins D and E, protein, pantothenic acid and fatty acids. May be used as a massage oil at approximately 10% dilution. It is a nice oil to use in soap because it has a high percentage of unsaponifiables. Should be kept in a cool place or refrigerated; has an excellent shelf life. SAP value: 187.5. INCI: Persea gratissima (avocado) oil. This oil is food grade, cold pressed and refined; its color ranges from dark yellow to green and will vary from batch to batch. Shelf life: 1 year.

My favorite cp soap recipe contain avocado oil. It makes a very smooth, luxurious soap and and is also a good choice for lotion/cream. Not too heavy or too light. Just right.

Avocado Oil in Vitamin stores are so expensive and I get only half the amount of product I receive from Camden Grey but at double price. I now only purchase my avocado oil through Camden Grey

Excellent moisturizer. High quality
Reviewer: Raymundo Delgadillo (Austin, TX) 8.31.2015
This oil is great for protecting skin. It goes on a little heavy, but eventually absorbs. Almost no scent, and moisturizes all day.

I love this in soap
I use it to help combat drying effects of using coconut oil in soap. I have always found coconut oil soaps to make dry skin worse and it is very important to keep your skin healthy when you are chronically ill. I use this oil at less than 10% and I find it makes the best moisturising soap! Love it in lotion sticks too!
OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.
Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.

EO's in sizes of 25+ lbs. - industry-standard metal or plastic can with a pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the metal can indefinitely and up to 2 months in the plastic pail.
