A staple in the 21st century diet, avocado is well known for its multi-benefit properties. Famously high in healthy fats, avocado is an excellent source of vitamin E and C, both which play a key role in skin vitality and for hair that has become weakened, dull and unhealthy from the stresses of modern living, can prove to be extremely reinvigorating.
Natural beauty brands have long been singing the praises of this humble fruit, such as Faith In Nature with their superfood infused Avocado hair and body care collection. Super fuss-free and easy to use, all products are suitable for all hair and skin types, contain 100% natural fragrance, vegan friendly, cruelty free, formulated without parabens or SLS and housed in a 100% recycled and recyclable bottle.
Avocado for your hair
All those vitamins, minerals and fatty acids help to make your hair look and feel healthier. They can strengthen your locks, add shine and make your hair feel softer and more elastic. Suffer from a dry, itchy head or dandruff? Avocados may help to improve the health of your scalp, which can promote hair growth and reduce dryness and itching.
Avocado for your skin
The oleic acid in avocados is a superb moisturiser, while the antioxidants help to fight free-radicals and so protect skin from damage. Avocados are rich in Vitamin E, which has long been prized for its ability to boost collagen production, reduce scarring and keep skin healthy. Avocados can also help to plump and soften the skin, treat dry patches, boost hydration, reduce inflammation and a whole lot more.

The avocado is particularly poignant for Faith in Nature, as it’s this seed where everything all started for the brand’s founder, Rivka Rose, 45 years ago. Growing up in New York, there weren’t many ways for Rivka to immerse herself in nature, but by growing avocado seeds on her windowsill, she found one, and the rest is history as they say – just goes to show what even the smallest connection to nature can inspire.
