How It Started
While avocados have been a superfood for many years, avocado oil is a relatively new discovery. Earlier methods of extracting and producing avocado oil were laborious and generated insignificant yields. As demand for avocado oil grew, modern extraction practices were developed for both food grade and large-scale production.
The development of modernized methods has allowed for a high-quality oil suitable for cooking and cosmetics. AvoPacific’s 100% pure avocado oil shows that this super-fruit can also be a super-liquid. Maintaining the same nutritional benefits of the avocado itself, avocado oil can play an abundance of roles in cooking, cosmetics, nutraceuticals, and much more.
