Avocados, are the super fruit of the moment and the choice of vegans across the world. Their high nutrient content, creamy texture, versatility and pleasant taste make them an essential item to add to your weekly grocery list.

Kalabash organic bath/body oils are enriched with organic avocado oil because of the high oleic acid (healthy fat) content in avocado flesh, which can penetrate deep into the skin without forming a greasy layer or clogging your pores.

Perfect for dry and aging skin the anti-inflammatory properties in this light oil helps with healing and repairing damaged skin cells and reducing wrinkles.
