A luxurious blend of healthy oils using a high percentage (60%-70%) of our farm-grown California Hass Avocado oil. Our rich green, thick, Extra-Virgin Avocado Oil is cold-pressed by hand using only grade-A fruit pulp (no skins or seed). Coconut oil is added for its cleansing properties and to extend the life (hardness) of the bar, and a small percentage of extra-virgin olive oil to extend the silky/creamy feeling. Very lightly scented with coconut fragrance oil, and a pinch of finely ground dried avocado seed is added as a mild exfoliant.
For those knowledgeable about handmade soaps, we process everything below temperatures of 115F to prevent gel phasing and loss of the avocado nutrients. The coconut scent oil (only 1 drop per bar) is added to neutralize the avocado scent and should not be objectionable to those allergic to scented soaps.
Available in a "natural" silky-matte finish or "rustic" (re-milled) finish. Comes in a lightweight handmade box making it a great gift item.

Frequently asked Questions:
1: How much avocado oil is used?
2: Is this soap scented?
Answer: Our first bars were unscented with a mild odor of avocado from the raw oil we use, but most of our customers preferred a different scent. Since we are adding coconut oil to make the bar more cleansing and durable, we put a small amount of coconut scent oil into the mix... just enough to neutralize the avocado odor but not enough to irritate those with allergies (like myself).
