Can Avocado Powder Clean Your Skin?

Avocado seed powder offers many benefits for the skin. Not only does it provide gentle exfoliation, it’s also packed with antioxidants and other beneficial compounds. In this guide, we’ll explore where avocado powder comes from, investigate what the avocado seed powder benefits for skin are, and explain how to use our avocado powder face scrub in your weekly skincare routine.

What Is Avocado Powder?

You have no doubt heard of the avocado, which is a teardrop shaped fruit with dark green leathery skin and bright green flesh. Avocados grow on a medium-size evergreen tree that belongs to the laurel family. They are subtropical plants and thrive in warmer regions near the equator. There are over 500 varieties of avocados, and different varieties are ready to harvest at different times of year.

Avocado powder is made by freeze drying the avocado, then grinding it down into a finely milled powder made of evenly sized granules. For cosmetic products like our Smooth Trails Energizing Face Scrub, the entire food-grade avocado is upcycled — including the skin and seed pit — to reduce waste. Upcycling the whole avocado also creates a more effective exfoliating experience that is still gentle enough to be used by pretty much every skin type. Avocado may sometimes be used in food products as well as cosmetic products.

Avocado Powder Benefits For Skin

Avocado seed powder offers many benefits for skin when applied topically. First of all, when ground into a powder, this natural skincare ingredient buffs away dead skin cells and leaves your skin glowing. This helps to get rid of dry patches and even out the texture of your skin. Our Smooth Trails Energizing Face Scrub is gentle enough to be used multiple times a week by most skin types.

Avocado seed powder also contains many beneficial compounds that are good for your skin. They are rich in antioxidants that can help to protect your skin from free radical damage. This may also help to prevent or reduce signs of aging, such as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Avocados also contain anti-inflammatory compounds that can help to reduce redness and swelling. 

How To Use Avocado Seed Powder For Skin

For best results, we recommend using our Smooth Trails Energizing Face Scrub after removing your makeup and cleansing your face, but before the rest of your skincare routine. Apply a nickel size amount of the natural face scrub to your face, gently rubbing it around in circles with your fingertips. Be careful to avoid the eye area and do not get the scrub in your eyes. Massage your face for about a minute or so, then rinse off your face with lukewarm water, pat dry, and proceed with the rest of your skincare routine. For best results, use our natural face scrub 2-4 times a week.
