Organic avocado oil crude

Gustav Heess

For our high quality avocado oil raw organic we work with various local partners or cooperatives. In the past, avocado trees were mainly grown by small organic coffee farmers between the coffee plants for shade. The avocado fruits were difficult to sell on the local market and were often not even harvested. By working with local cooperatives, the small farmer now has access to the international market and can increase his income with avocados. Since the avocado fruit is a delicate fruit, it can only be processed locally, creating further value and jobs locally.


  • Cosmetics

    • Avocado oil is a base oil in many cosmetic and personal care products.
    • Avocado oil is used for brittle, dry and very damaged hair.
    • The fruit supports the natural re-fattening of the scalp and brings an imbalance of the sebaceous glands caused by improper care back into balance
    • Avocado can protect the hair from drying out
    • Due to its nature, avocado oil can penetrate deep into the skin layers
    • Avocado oil is quickly absorbed and well absorbed by the skin.
    • Thanks to its high fat content, avocado oil moisturizes, reduces rough to horny skin and protects the skin from drying.
    • Avocado oil is non-comedogenic, so it does not clog pores and is therefore also suitable for blemished skin.

Sustainability & responsibility

For our avocado oil raw organic we use only avocados, which are grown by small farmers and now offer them an additional source of income. A cultivation on large plantations with monocultures does not take place, but the avocado tree is grown in symbiosis with organic coffee. Local processing ensures local added value and local jobs.
