Laboratoires Expanscience Launches COSMOS-approved Avocado Oil

Expanscience_Avocado_OilLaboratoires Expanscience has launched organic virgin avocado oil, a sensorial ingredient made from Peru that is nourishing and emollient. Certified 100 percent organic by Ecocert Greenlife - according to the COSMOS standard, the new organic virgin avocado oil is obtained by cold pressing the entire fruit.

Offers Nourishing and Protecting Properties


The avocado is processed by slicing, drying and pressing the skin, the pulp and the seed, resulting in zero waste. The exclusive process patented by Expanscience is part of the company’s eco-design approach and enables the oil to conserve all its molecular richness. The nourishing and protecting properties are a result of this molecular richness and adds shine to the hair.

Considered as a product of excellence by Expanscience, the avocado is fully sourced in Peru. All parts of the fruit are used in this new organic virgin oil, with a guaranteed origin: 100 percent made in Peru.

The oil is produced at Deshidratados Tropicales, Expanscience’s raw material transformation plant located in Lima, Peru. Expanscience acquired the plant in 2016 to secure supply and maintain close contact with local producers, while decreasing the carbon impact linked to transporting the oil instead of the fruits.

Works on Transparency-based Approach


The transparency-based approach, which starts with raw materials sourcing and continues through market release of the finished product, is designed to meet the increasingly exacting demands of cosmetic market consumers.

“Science and conscience, naturally” is the guiding principle of the Expanscience Cosmetic Active Ingredients activity. With forty years of experience in the domain of plant raw materials, Expanscience cares for humans and their environment while developing innovative, high-quality natural cosmetic active ingredients based on the company’s expertise in lipochemistry, molecular distillation and plant extraction. This responsible approach has been recognized by B Corp certification since 2018 and by the UEBT (Union for Ethical BioTrade), which the company joined in 2011.
