The avocado plant (Persea Americana) is an evergreen tree that can grow between 50-65 feet tall with large, glossy leaves, white flowers, and green or purple fruit clusters. It’s a member of the plant family Lauraceae, which also includes cinnamon and bay laurel, and is native to Mexico and Central America.
Avocado oil has many benefits when used topically, including moisturizing properties and vitamins A, D, E and K which help nourish the skin.
This plant requires warm weather to grow and thrives best in high humidity within the range of 60 to 95 Fahrenheit. They must be planted in nutrient-rich soil near other avocado trees and they must be regularly pruned, watered, and fertilized in order to thrive. Avocados are usually pollinated by bees
At EIR, their avocado trees are grown in conjunction with their coffee trees, where the avocado provides partial shade so the coffee plant can thrive.
Harvesting & Processing
Avocado harvesting takes place continuously throughout the year, as avocados become ripe. Ripe fruits are shaken loose from the branches and collected before being transported to a processing plant.
The fruits are washed, peeled, and pitted before being cold-pressed into oil. EIR uses a centrifuge to separate the oil from the pulp and flesh so that the only thing left is pure Avocado Oil.
Overall, avocado oil is a high-quality oil that has many benefits for skin care, cooking, and overall health when consumed in moderation. Its production process is relatively simple and sustainable, making it an environmentally friendly choice compared to other vegetable oils. As awareness of the health benefits continues to grow, so does avocado oil's popularity as a key ingredient in skincare products and culinary dishes alike.
