Ingredient Spotlight: Avocado - Inside & Out!
Oh the weather outside is snowing… well almost. Wherever you are this holiday season. One thing for sure is winter can bring about dryness and dehydration – whether it’s the cold air or the cozy heaters inside. Humidity goes down, dehydration goes up! What’s one ingredient we all know and love which helps with hydration and rich fatty acid nourishment? It’s one of humanity’s favorite foods (for both body and skincare)… the avocado! This particular fruit has been used for centuries in Indonesian food and beauty traditions. Avocados are affordable and abundant in Indonesia, used for anything from the famous “cremebath” hair treatments to avocado juices and beyond. In fact, avocado drinks are a staple in Indonesia. And we LOVE it for JUARA. No matter how it’s used, avocados are renowned for their wealth of health benefits for not just your body, but your skin and hair too… here’s a rundown of all sorts of benefits – inside and out!
- Rich in fatty acids that deeply moisturize the skin.
- Potassium, lecithin, and more to nourish on a cellular level.
- Antioxidants that soothe dry, irritated, and flaky skin.
- Prevents (and even treats) acne, thanks to avocado’s superb anti-inflammatory effects.
We give hats off to the great uses in this skin softening, hydrating leave-on mask, our JUARA Java Plum & Avocado Mask, our Radiance Vitality Oil, our Sweet Black Tea & Rice Facial Moisturizer, and the Miracle Tea Eye Creme! Curious? Details below…
- Rejuvenates and moisturizes the scalp – where healthy hair begins.
- Vitamins A, D, E, and B6 nourish hair and scalp while promoting speedy growth.
- Antioxidants rescue hair from free radicals.
- Unclogs follicles and stimulates new hair growth from dormant follicles.
There is a traditional and common treatment we regularly partake in at the salon called the creme bath where you get a legit amazing deep conditioning hair treatment that includes a 45 minute (yes 45 full minutes!) of a head, neck and shoulder/arm massage while undergoing deep conditioning. You can choose which kind of ingredient is used in the deep conditioner based on hair needs: Rich Candlenut for shiny black hair, Hydrating Avocado for dry hair, Protein-filled Egg for fine hair, and Aloe Vera for thin hair. If you’re even in Indonesia, you MUST ask for a cremebath at the spa or salon!
- Keep your weight in check: Munch on avocados daily to maintain a healthy weight and boost digestion.
- Prevent heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even obesity thanks to avocado’s dietary fiber.
- High in Fat. Low in Carbs: Avocados are nutritious and delicious, packed with vitamins and nutrients that have even more potassium than bananas!
Honestly, we could go on all day – but we’re sure you get the picture. If you don’t, follow in Indonesia’s footsteps and let avocado into your life today. The nation continues to choose sweet over savory, unlike Westerners, blending it into just about everything – shakes, milky drinks, coffee, and even chocolate syrup. Indonesians also fill their bathtubs with avocado to boost circulation and soften the skin. So, next time you stock up on avocados, reimagine what you can do with them. We at JUARA certainly did and we love them in our products! See what we do with Avocado in our products, and experience what they can do for your skin!
